I don't see why that's a negative. We sign him to an overpay at two years, and he'll consider it I'm sure. He may be 9 months younger than Smyth, but Smyth was slow even in his prime, Cullen was not. Smyth played a style that has caused his body to break down. Cullen did not. Cullen has always played smart hockey, those types of guys seem to last a few more years. He would be a good fix for now, and brings the veteran leadership that this team is lacking.
