I think the biggest factor b/w the Canes Cullen and the one we see this year is that he played with an exceptional playmaker in Whitney who allowed Cullen to utilize his speed and shot as opposed to us putting him with 2 similar players in Shanny/Prucha who also aren't playmakers and who also are of the "sniper who needs a setup man on the line" types as well.

Hopefully next year the team can ice 2 legit centers for the 1st 2 lines and Cullen can slide in at the 3rd slot where he'd be amoung he top 3rd line centers offensively in the NHL.
