If he just wanted to stay competitive, then why make a deal? He had more than adequate team. Letowski wouldn't have produced the offensive numbers that Cullen did, but he would have played the same kind of game, and given the same versatility that Cullen did.
There was no need for that trade, whatsoever.
Carolina certainly had more than enough to be a competitive team. Ladd will be able to contribute more, Cole will be back and healthy. They've got guys who can score, and they've got a decent defense. Ward will still win them games.
