If anything between these two teams, maybe Duprses for Coyle.

Other than that...idk.

There better be a + beside Coyle's name if you want Despres.

Unless in your Island of Dr. Moreau kind of way, you've spliced Dupuis & Despres togeter for Duprses.

In any case, Coyle is a RH Center, unless he's played LW/RW a lot as of late, why would the Pens be interested in him? We are better off giving Beau Bennett a shot.

He hasn't played center consistently since his college days. Since going to Saint John, the AHL, and his latest stint in the NHL he has played wing. The wild has high hopes for him so I doubt he is being traded. He brings a skillset that isn't abundant in the Wild system.

Why would you even comment on a trade where you clearly know nothing about one of the players involved in the proposal?

I'd just like to see someone be crosby's jari kurri or Brett Hull. He makes Kunitz and dupuis look good so imagine what he could do with a real winger(s) to play with. I'm not saying those two aren't good guys just put them on almost any other team and they are nowhere near what they are now. Kunitz is definitely the better of the two though IMO.

I hear you, just not seeing how Matt Cullen figures into it.

Agreed. That's what I forgot to say. Cullen is equal or less valuable than dupuis. Pens need to find another James Neal type deal.

Yeah Cullen is in no way a capable top 6 player at this point in his career. He is good for 30 points on the Wild and that is with top 6 minutes most of the time and PP time. He is a good veteran to have on the 3rd line with his experience and he will go on streaks where he provides good offense, but its far from consistent.

Maybe Cullen for Cooke? Less bad press for the Pengies and Cooke with Konopka is a scary thought.

I don't that would go over too well with the Minnesota fan base. Cooke's not exactly a popular person here from his Vancouver days.

No Cooke is a solid 3rd liner, him and Sutter are solid defensive minded 3rd liners, we need another 3rd liner to replace Kennedy, but Matt Cullen isn't that guy.

I know he's not available and Wild fans heard it from Pens fans before, but Clutterbuck would be a perfect fit on that 3rd line with Cooke and Sutter.

What are you offering for him?

Cully is a great vet on a team looking to add that one final piece for a cup run, problem is he's in control of his fate, he lives here and moved back here 3 years ago so the odds of him saying "sure i'll turn my family upside down" are low. I see no need for the hate from Wild fans on him. I also don't see him as the guy who Pens was.

Aside from the obvious desire for Seto i think Shero would want to take a chance on PMB if he can get him for cheap. That would be a solid skill addition for Pens.

Remember too, that whatever you offer, another team is prepared to give more.

That is more than fine in this instance. We need a solid top six winger. Cullen doesn't add that option for Pittsburgh.

Think they we're talking about Clutterbuck there. Not a top6 winger either, but probably overall more usefull than Cullen.

im not understanding why the pens fans are not interested in a defensively sound vet w a ring for depth ; for a 2nd pick & conditional 3rd if you make the 3rd rnd? cully's not slow and very good on the penalty kill.

OK, I'd be fine with that. He is the only guy on Minnesota's roster that they should be interested in, knowing Parise and Suter aren't going anywhere. Clutterbuck is more useful than Cullen.

A third line of Cooke-Sutter and Clutterbuck would be wild.

A second line of Malkin-Neal and Clutterbuck would be interesting. Three guys that do play with edge.

I don't think Minnesota trades him, so its pointless to thing about an offer.

Gonna differ from my fellow Pens fans here. Cullen's a useful vet we could find a roster spot for. Proven winner, too.

The reason the idea's receiving so much pushback is that he doesn't necessarily directly address the Penguins' one glaring need (top 6 left wing) and the fanbase has their hearts set on any number of "sexier" acquisitions (Stewart, Kulemin, etc).

The resistance you see has nothing to do with Cullen himself.
