    Default Jiri Kulich

    What do you guys think about him? Will we see him in the NHL next season? What's his celling for the future?

    What he's doing in the AHL is impressive and I don't think people are talking enough about him.

    I think heís very underrated for sure. I think heís also really good defensively which may see him jump to the bigs next year. Only problem is in buffalo there appears to be a logjam at centre with Cozens and Mittelstadt. He could unfortunately get put on as the 3rd C as he seems almost like a Lundell type defensively responsible - which in real life is exactly the player you need but in fantasy makes us cry if we spent a high pick on him! I think unless buffalo moves someone to the wing he gets pigeonholed on a checking line and Kulich doesnít get more than 50 points in any season. Obviously heís young and a long way from hitting that number so I donít mean I think he hits 50 next season, but unless he, cozens or Mittelstadt take a wing spot heís kinda stuck for ceiling. Ideal situation 70-80 point defensively responsible forward though I think 80 is a bit of a stretch.

    Kulich's shot is absolutely phenomenal.
    The quality of his shot is not that far off what Ovechkin, DeBrincat, and Pastrnak can do from a set PP spot.
    Other huge benefit is that he can offset Tage's RH-shot on the BUF PP.

    Buffalo won't bring back UFA's Okposo, Hinostroza, and Girgensons - so there may be a spot (*should*) next season.

    Here's a video of two goals he scored last game, the tip (first minute of video) is nothing special.
    But the one-timer at the 1:02 mark is standard Kulich... BIG shot, BIG.



    (In WHL draft this past summer, I was set on Snuggerud - nice player - who got sniped right before me and was deciding between Gaucher (ANA) and Kulich (BUF) and just a few minutes into highlights... it was clear!)

    Kulich has been excellent this season and would probably go top 12 or so in a redraft. With his shot and the playmakers Buffalo has, a 70-80 point ceiling is very reasonable if not conservative. Just for context, Buffalo was torn between Ostlund and Kulich at pick #16. They went with Ostlund because he's a center but Buffalo tried to trade up from 26 to acquire Kulich but were unsuccessful. They were ecstatic he fell. I was pumped I drafted him 27 in a league and was able to pick him up as a FA in another league. Kinda makes up for drafting Lekkermaki at #8.

    i dont think there is chance in hell he plays in NHL next year..maybe gets few games but i doubt it. They got lots of youngsters up and coming and i believe he will marinate in the AHL for year or 2 but i do think he got a potential to be a very good middle 6 guy one day.

    What I like his that it looks like he can play wing and center. Teams like that.
