I personally would have preferred to have kept Cullen because while he's not the ideal shut down type center, in this more free-flowing style of NHL, having a 3rd line center like Cullen is better than having cap flexibility at his expense.
Now, we lost pretty much our 2 best PK'ers in Cully and Orts, also I believe that Cullen was also our best face-off center as well?
Not really happy, think we could have done better by keeping him and dealing him later.
I'll be even less happy if this was done in part to make room for a useless Hossa.
im still hoping useless hossa gets dealt down the line with boarding hollweg. I still hope we sign Asham. Him and Avery on a line with be awesome. Asham killed penalties on the Islanders and on the Habs I believe. Hed be cheaper than most of the UFA out there now.
