GM's will inquire about Cullen, I am sure. Consistant and stable player.

I can't believe there isn't more interest in Harding around the league! I understand he has never spent time as a starter, but when behind Backstrom how many goalies would have stolen time?

Zanon's definitely getting shopped. Cullen has a limited NTC, so he'd have to approve the trade.

I don't see how the Wild can afford to trade Cullen, either.

Cullen has a NTC with another year left, and given he is from MN and has his family here I seriously doubt he waives.

The biggest knocks on Harding is no playoff experience, injury concerns, and he hasn't played anything close to a #1 goalie's time in terms of games/mins. Playoff teams are going to be hesitant because of lack of literally no post-season experience. Meanwhile a seller team would be better off going for a Bernier, Schneider, Rask, who are younger versus a free agent to be 28 year old.

Cullen isn't likely to waive his NTC for anyone.

Zanon will likely be a "well all the other defensemen are gone" last minute deal if he's dealt. With Lundin likely done for the season and Stoner still on IR, the Wild are running out of defensemen. I don't think we feel obligated to move him, so the deal has to be right, which may or may not happen.

Harding's likely on the move. I suspect it won't happen until the Nabokov situation is resolved one way or the other though.

Detroit would be wise to look at all three of them.. With Ericsson's injury, their need to slide someone into their #3 center position and their lack of depth in net, it would make sense.

If the Wild get a good enough offer for Cullen (a 1st or quality prospect) they might move him despite it hurting them this season and next (since Bouchard is probably done). They are still a long way from the playoffs and they might go full youth in the forwards next year.

No, he's performed pretty much in line with the rest of his career. Points totals were down a bit, but that tends to happen by your mid thirties.
