Filppula is not demonstrably better than Cullen, and Cullen's contract is short - i'd rather have Cullen for 2 years than be stuck with Filppula for 5 at 5mil. If Filppula flops away from Detroit, then you're stuck with an albatross of a contract. If Cullen flops, he's gone in after next year.
Small, injury prone Mason Raymond? Yep, we don't have any of those type players. Quick - who scored more goals and points in 2011/12 - Mason Raymond or Eric Nystrom? There's a reason Raymond's still unsigned.
Parros? Really? We had a Parros before, it was called McGrattan, and it sat in the press box. At least Nystrom/Hendricks can contribute on a bottom line while mucking it up a bit.
