Continued: Scoggins: Wild's Cullen is tough to replace

Cullen’s game still revolves around speed, which he finds ironic because that was the primary knock on him entering the 1996 draft.

“I was a slower guy in high school and college,” he said. “They talked a lot about that, that I need to work on my skating.”

Cullen continues to make that a priority every offseason because he doesn’t want his game to slip. He’s having too much fun flicking passes from his stomach to a teammate 15 years his junior.

“It’s fun to see the enthusiasm and the energy,” Cullen said. “It’s really fun to be a part of that.”
