I'd actually rather have Cullen than Roy. Roy has not won a Cup. Roy has been on the decline since coming back from injury. Cullen has proven more durable and despite his age would compete with Gelinas in terms of fitness.

Cullen was signed to be our No. 1 center. But in our system we have three second lines of offense and on any given night we will have a different line step up and be the leader. It's offense by committee. No doubt about it.

In terms of who upgraded more? We replaced Spaling at center with Legwand, Legwand with Fisher, and Fisher with Cullen. The Blues lost McDonald and gained Roy. In my mind we upgraded while the Blues are a wash at best on paper. Ultimately though, it's going to be settled on the ice - not the message boards.
