In other words, just skip the bridge all together and sign the right guy.
Furthermore, it doesn't make sense to sign Cullen without buying out Horcoff (I am a huge supporter of using a compliance buyout on him, so Bryanbryoil I agree). What I'm saying is that if I'm Cullen and only have a few years left, I'm not choosing the Oilers because they're not ready to win yet, he likely won't accept a 4th line center role, and the Oilers already have Horcoff as a 3rd line C. Since many of us believe Horcoff isn't getting bought out, what incentive is there for Cullen to sign here?
If only it was that easy.
