<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>dgibb10</b></div><div>Yegor was a specific target that they wanted. The main piece of the deal.

Kuzmenko is "this is the cap we need to take back in order to get these other pieces"

I don't think it's particularly similar. Specifically because there's not much for kuzmenko to "bounce back" to. His season last year was carried by a ridiculously unsustainable shooting%. He's never going to get close to 27% again</div></div>

He doesn't have to bounce all the way back to 39 goals to be a useful player for Calgary, or even to be worth $5.5M. They're going to have to carry that cap hit all the way through next season, and they're not a rebuilding team (some people will argue that they should be, but that's not their strategy) so they're going to need cap space to replace the players they're losing or keep those they still have. I don't think they would have taken him if they didn't want him.

As far as the shooting percentage goes, they said the same thing about Brandon Hagel when he was traded from Chicago to Tampa Bay. It wasn't 27%, but it was over 20. He's done pretty well with Tampa Bay. He was a lot younger and hadn't already started to regress before the trade, so not a good player comparison, but this tells me not to read too much into shooting percentage. I'm not predicting Kuzmenko will be a consistent 30-goal scorer, but I'm not giving up on him yet either. I think it depends on where they're able to slot him into the lineup.
