"We haven't exchanged proposals in a couple of weeks now. While they can say: ‘he was on your first line last year,' there is no one who would say Nikolai Kulemin is a first line left winger. He's a first line left winger by default because we did not have a very good team. I'm not paying for someone who gets the position by default."Brian Burke hit the airwaves today and shared some information on negotiations with Nikolai Kulemin and other Leafs topics. Glove tap to @DWKM for passing the story along.
