I think it will be pretty tough to move Cullen right now...I'm thinking he will carry more value at the deadline for playoff-bound teams looking to add a veteran forward that can win faceoffs and ,most importantly, is in the last year of his contract.

Would take an awful lot to pry him out of their org. Use the search function on the trade forum and see what Panther fans have been turning down.

if Wild want do to a trade Seto is the piece that makes most sense.

Cully has a NTC and i just don't see the team willing to ask him to waive it. cullen can always go play 3rd line.

Still i would give it about 8 games with a few practices in there to get the 2nd line to start clicking.

One line combo I'd like to see is Zucker and Granlund centered by Larsson, i think Larsson is better suited for NHL center duty then Granlund simply because of his build.

He might decide to waive it if his ice time/role is diminished considerably enough.

I don't think Bjugstad has the hands to be a 1st line NHLer.

I don't think he waives it simply because he'll retire after this year IMO. Fletcher will keep him on to show good faith. Probably why he took on the contract he got.

Cullen doesn't look like a guy about to retire. He's always been a workout stud. He hasn't lost any speed, he's still faster than most guys in the league. It is hard to see where he'd fit in with the Wild next year, but he'll still be a very good 3rd Line NHL Center next season. He's versatile - play PP point or halfwall, kill a penalty, take an important face-off...

Cullen has at least two more seasons as a 3rd line center. There are team that could use him. But he has little use here.

The crazy side of me would trade Cullen for a pick and setoguchi and coyle and a pick for major top-6 winger to play with granlund and zucker.

But the prudent side of me says that there really isn't anybody available that would make that worth it.

Would seto + coyle and a 2nd rounder get us Subban...........or you can sub in Cullen for Seto.
Gerard Gallant , MTL assistant coach, coached CC last year in st John and apparently is very high on him.
Scandella may very well have to part of the deal in some way. Played in the QMJHL, and MTL loves those guys..just a thought !

I really don't think Montreal is interested in shipping PK, even if they are having contract issues.

You could very well be right, however tonight on TSN, Bob macKenzie and Aaron Ward, couple of respected analysts both thought MTL will trade him--says his demands are not reasonable--time will tell !

Hanzal's a healthy scratch for Phoenix tonight.

I'd love to do a trade centered around Setoguchi for him.

Why? Hanzal is a center and we already have plenty of those.

He's a 6'6, 235lb defensively responsible center. Why wouldn't we want him?

He's one of my hockey crushes, and I love his game; just a monster defensively.

I also haven't been impressed with Setoguchi the last few games.

So we trade a scoring winger for a defensive center when we're struggling to score goals? I'd rather trade Seto for an upgraded winger or top 4 d-man, not another center when we already have Koivu, Granlund, Cullen, Brodziak, Powe, and Konopka.

What about Benn? Got to think we have enough prospects to bring him in.

Just think of a 2nd line of Benn, Granlund, and Zucker. That would be nasty.

Benn would probably cost something close to the Kessel trade. So a couple 1sts and a top prospect or say a 1st and two top prospects. I'd rather see how our guys do.

Have to have some salary going back too, right?

Zucker has played his way into the forefront of any major trade (Benn, Subban, etc...). What I mean is, teams should pretty much know that Granlund and Brodin are off limits, so if we come calling for one of their top guys, you better believe Zucker would be one fo the required pieces going back.

While that is probably true, Fletcher would obviously say "Coyle or Zucker", and Dallas might want Coyle since he would be replacing Benn. Plus, Zucker is less attractive if Setoguchi is going to Dallas as well.

True, we'd have to shed salary and then give Benn a big deal, like $5M or more.

It just makes no sense. We have big $ committed to Parise, Koivu, Heatley...don't need another expensive forward.

I'd trade for Subban before I trade for Ryan or Benn.

Depends how "outrageous" Subban's demands apparently are.

I'd be hesitant to trade for any of them. Have some young'n's to sign coming up. Need to maintain some flexibility on top of that.

Exactly.

We have Brodin, Gunnarsson, Dumba and Seeler on the pipeline. No need to trade for D.
