Sens trade 7th defenceman Alex Picard and a 2nd rounder for Matt Cullen, according to tsn.ca. This is great news as Picard has been a thorn in most of our sides all year. Also, I have a good buddy also named Matt Cullen, which should inspire a lot of bad jokes among my circle of friends.
This move puts us officially out of cap space and also takes us down to 6 NHL caliber defencemen, including Karlsson.
Cullen has 40 pts in 60 games with the Canes this season and should be a great addition to our lunch pail group.
In other news, Duff's nausea is subsiding now that Picard has been shipped out. Ironically, Picard will now reside in Duff's Carolina backyard.
