We couldn't get squat when we were consistently a playoff team, taking the next step forward as a franchise and aiming for conference and Cup finals.

Columbus will throw a parade because they made the playoffs.

Its not so much against Cullen as it is the thought that we have spent some of our budget on a 'hohummer' and now have less for a Grabo, Iginla, or Jagr.

Cullen would be fine but does not satisfy the top 6 need. Some of you need t understand a Watson is not going to be wont his team next year. I said many times when everyone was pining for a F at 4, that you don't win with a crap ton of youth., which is what we are looking at. Adding in a Cullen and a Nystrom, the bottom 6 is good to go and have a piece or two to try and move.

My fear is that as thee guys got insane contracts like Clowe just got, Wilson/hornquist/forsbeg/beck or bourque look like our top 6 wings.

I will reserve judgement until all the shiny toys are bought

Cullen is a fine addition if you don't already have Fisher, Legwand, and Gaustad.

Reports are that we are kinda thinking about talking to or maybe emailing/texting/tweeting or accepting a friend request a few possible players that may be wanting to possibly play hockey somewhere (except Nashville)... Woohoo! That about sums it up!

Reminder: if a person is a poster here, even if they are a member of the media, they are not to be flamed. This includes Eklund, for anyone who might be wondering, as well as Cooper. You are free to critique what they put out there on Twitter or their respective sites, but do not personally attack them.

Yes. I'm sure that is exactly what is going on as we speak.

Poile is likely having a tea party with his stuffed animals, waiting for his Fisher Price phone to ring.

Agreed. The other consideration is that this team has become awfully soft to play against, IMO, the last few seasons, and very different from the less skilled, but pain in the ass Preds teams from the past. I think guys like Cullen and Nystrom definitely help bring back some backbone. Not going to panic yet, even if the "sexy" names are off the board.

Two solid players. I'd like another winger who can score 25-30. Go hard after Jagr or Iginla and if they say no look to the trade market.

Spaling is weak on faceoffs, he'll play LW. Centers will most likely be:

Fisher
Legwand
Cullen
Gaustad
