It would be a mistake to re-sign him to a big contract, or even re-sign him in general. He's having a good season. Let him ride it out. Cheer him. Be happy for him.

But don't jump to conclusions that aren't worth anything.
I'd rather re-sign him to a decent 1 or 2 year deal at around 2.5mil cap hit as insurance than put all my hopes on granlund. If FBJ isn't ready still and you don't resign cullen, your #2 center is now kyle brodziak. We aren't going to sign a #2 in FA, that would be a 3+year 4+Mill contract.

and lets be honest here, for the first time since Matt Cullen has got here, there is actually some consistency in this line up and his wingers every night. He has been one of the more consistent players since put back to center imo. He didn't score last night, but he buzzed in the o zone all game.

+ hes a also good at FO's, PKing, isn't a liability, he has alot of playoff experience, has a cup, and knows our system.
