Matt Cullen signs with the Minnesota Wild

Trade deadline pick-up Matt Cullen has signed a three-year deal worth $3.5M/year with the Minnesota Wild. With the Gonchar signing taking up a huge chunk of the payroll, it comes as no surprise that Cullen goes elsewhere.

Although many will complain about the Senators trading Alex Picard a draft pick and not retaining the player they traded for, Cullen an extremely valuable part of the Ottawa Senators' playoff series against Pittsburgh, a series that likely would not have reached six games if it was not for Cullen's efforts.
