And again, look at the list of UFA forwards, not a lot out there.
We could re-sign Cullen and roll with Cullen and Granlund as our 2C and 3C. Which one plays where is determined by their play.

Zucker - Cullen/Granlund - Setoguchi
Clutterbuck(?) - Granlund/Cullen - Coyle

That leaves us with Haula and Graovac as our center prospects under contract. In 2014-2015 or 2015-2016 after Cullen is gone, one of them are hopefully able to step into the 3C spot. And it will be around that time that Gilmour is in his junior year at BC and might be ready to sign his pro contract.

...and now I will put away my crystal ball.
