The Toronto Maple Leafs would like to see Nikolai Kulemin shoot the puck more.
"From my memory before I got here, Kulemin had a big-time shot and I don't see him shooting the puck as often," Leafs coach Randy Carlyle said. "He used to step over the blue line and his wrist shot had the ability to beat the goalie from the top of the circle . . . I don't see that happening anymore. We'd like to see him cycle the puck more and get the puck to the net more." Kulemin scored what was just his third goal of the season on Saturday. He had 30 goals in 2010-11, but has found the back of the net just 10 times in the 99 contests since his breakout season. He is shooting the puck less, but that's not the full issue. He had a 17.3 shooting percentage in 2010-11 and just a 6.1% success rate in 2013. Rumors have surfaced that the Penguins and Oilers might be interested in Kulemin's services and perhaps a change of scenery would boost his production.
