A bit off topic: If Hossa is the odd man out in NY, we should sign him here. Then, we should wine and dine him and give him everything he wants. Then we should get him to convince his brother to come here.

This trade opens up room to re-sign Avery and Hossa.

No offense Carolina, but I don't see this helping you much.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

It helped Carolina screw us over. That's the only reason they make half of the moves they make down there.

I wonder if the Rangers made this move soley to create cap space to re-sign Avery. It definitely seems like it. So that sucks. I was really hoping they wouldnt be able to retain Aves. But I figured they were either gonna make a trade, or send a player or two down. So this is no suprise to me. Im just a little bummed out.

So... the rumors are true...

Cullen played with Carolina before and helped them, and unless they change their system completely, should help them again. He just wasn't fitting in with the Rags, for who knows what reason.

it helps them now, Cullen was a vital part of there cup run in 06, they struggled hard to fill his third line center spot. AS far as the future, hutchinson was a good young Defensive prospect for them. Since they have an ancient D and not alot of young D in the pipes. I don't quite understand this.

Their GM is counting on Dennis Seidenberg to fill the hole Hutchinson left. Good luck with that.

Rutherford loves Cullen and sorely missed him after he left for the Rags. He's stated that they never did fill the void when he left. Obviously he brings something big for that Canes team.

You heard it from me in the Avery thread...Now we can get down to business and get him signed.

He outscored Marian in the playoffs, hilariously enough.

Yeah...ouch. Seriously though, what do we need? A pure goal scorer on the Wing. If we could go all cheap youth and then find a way to keep Homer, Dats, Hank and Hossa up front, we'd be awesome.

Amen. Rutherford and the Canes only exist so Karmanos can f*** around with Illitch. Too bad nobody cares..

At any rate, nobody should be surprised this happened. It was either send down Kaspar or trade Cullen. These have been rumors for a while now. Back to the drawing board...

I still say we give him an offer sheet, just to force the Rangers' into giving him a really nice salary. Maybe he'll remember how much we cared in the future when he's a UFA. laugh.gif

You can't give him an offer sheet because he is headed for arbitration. The only way Avery comes back to Detroit is if the Rangers decide to walk away from whatever the arbitrator decides.
