I agree totally. Another reason the 'canes didn't need to sign Cullen. I would love to see Zigomanis stay in Caro and get a real chance but if he is avaliable, I would advise NYR to take him. I've seen him play in the NHL (the few times he did play) and he looked very decent even if he doesn't have the numbers to prove it.
