Cullen a Sen, Murray re-signed

According to TSN the Ottawa Senators have acquired forward Matt Cullen from the Hurricanes for defenseman Alexandre Picard and a second round pick in this summer's draft.

Corey's Note: Although the sens didn't really need another center, Cullen brings some veteran leadership and some offense (he has 12 goals and 40 points this season). I assume he will take the 3rd line center position, with one of Kelly or Regin moving to the wing, or to the minors.

The Senators also announced today that GM Bryan Murray as been re-signed for another year, making him a "UFA GM" (as I like to call them) at the end of next season.

Corey's Note: Maybe this contract extension gave Murray some motivation to swing the Cullen deal, probably not, but wait and see what Murray does next if anything....
