Trying to fill the 2nd line center void after Fil(which he couldn't fill either, no pun intended) because they want Z and Pavel to play together.

But I don't think he's interested in long term for a guy who's already pushing 30, it just doesn't fit in with Datsyuk, Zetterberg and Franzen's deals and ages and the possibility of Jarnkrok being ready for 2nd line duty in 2-3 years. So he want it both ways, but will probably end up empty handed because of it. Since Cullen is mentioned in OP, I wouldn't be at all surprised if that's the guy he ends up paying. He's old enough to accept a two year deal. That seems extremely Holland-ish.
