The reason the idea's receiving so much pushback is that he doesn't necessarily directly address the Penguins' one glaring need (top 6 left wing) and the fanbase has their hearts set on any number of "sexier" acquisitions (Stewart, Kulemin, etc).

The resistance you see has nothing to do with Cullen himself.
While I agree with you in theory about Cullen - being a useful vet ... I see him as a third liner in Pittsburgh. I just don't see him fitting with Crosby or with Malkin.
