    I like it. that's a good value for a 4th line center that knows how to kick it up a level come playoffs.

    Didn't realize he was eligible for arbitration. Makes this deal even better.

    Why, he didn't exactly light it up in the A. No problems with Kuraly. Great trade.

    Wow that's a solid deal. The number I kept coming back to was $1 million per, so another 250k is fine. Liked the energy he brought night in and night out. Felt like he was the motor of the 4th line has the season kept progressing and even into the playoffs. I've been surprised by Kuraly since he joined the B's.

    Kuraly is still developing as a pro, too- there might be more to his offensive game than he's show so far. :dunno: I don't think he'll ever be a 50 point guy, but no reason to think it isn't possible he can do Riley Nash level offense.

    Great to have him in the fold for this long, solid 4th line player.

    Yes, I know. I was referencing back to Kuraly being able to play 3c rather than just hoping JFK can do it. If he can, great, but Kuraly might be an option there.

    Absolute steal of a deal

    this guy was the "initiator" when the team was stuck in mud during games....some fans here so easily forget

    locked up a really good 4th line center for 3 more seasons. One less thing to worry about

    Can’t remember what Behind the B episode it was, but there was a clip of Kuraly skating hard up the ice and he yelled “UP!” A couple times I think in a game to get his line mates feet moving. Thought was indicative of him as a player, 110% every shift. Really happy with this deal. I think he has a chance to be a 3C so wouldn’t mind if he got a shot in camp. Still has room to improve, this was his 1st year in the league.

    Kuraly will not be the teams 3C... he lacks skills to put up points or be depended to put up points

    best role for him is the 4c spot. Pure energy, forechecking, PK

    WOW great deal by Don

    Grab Kurals for all his best years at quite the low cap hit for what he brings. Love it. By the time it’s up we’ll either have other guys ready or he’ll have earned a raise. Win win

    This is the truth.

    He's all speed and lacks the hands, shooting and offensive creativity to be more than one as of right now. Schaller showed more offensive capability than Kuraly.

    Can he develop a scoring touch? Maybe, but he's a perfect 4th line center who kills penalties.
