Former Husky Matt Cullen Great for the MN Wild!

Former St. Cloud State Husky, Matt Cullen has had an enormously great start to his career with the Minnesota Wild. Don't believe me? Read some of this weeks quotes:
"...amazingly Matt Cullen's 4th 2-point game in 5 games as a Wild. He leads the NHL with 7 power-play points and is a huge reason for tonight's 3 for 3 power play and the season's league-leading 11 for 24 power play. " ~Michael Russo-Wild trounces Canucks, chases Luongo, makes Rypien lose marbles
"Cullen has been more than anybody could have expected at least early in the season. With a goal and an assist tonight, he’s now posted two points in four of the five games this year. He leads the team in scoring with three goals and five assists and he continues to pace the NHL in power play points with seven (3-4=7)."  ~Glen Anderson- Glen Andresen's Five Takeaways vs. Vancouver
 Now that Matt Cullen leads both the Wild in scoring and leads the NHL in power play scoring, does anyone have any doubts he was worth his 3-year, 10.5 million dollar contract? Is he still just a hometown signing? I think not. He is a great player for the Wild and was a great player for the Huskies.

Go Wild and Go Huskies!
