Matt Cullen energized by Cup win, wants to play one more year

From NHL.com:

Matt Cullen spent his first day with the Stanley Cup this summer reiterating that he wants to play a final season in the NHL, even if it's not a return to the champion Pittsburgh Penguins.

"I want to play one more season. It's just a matter of figuring out that destination," Cullen told 970 WDAY radio in Fargo, N.D. "We'll see. It's a work in progress."

Cullen had the Cup in Detroit Lakes, Minn., on Friday and will take it to Moorhead, Minn., on Saturday. He also won the Cup in 2006 with the Carolina Hurricanes.

"It's fun to see how excited everybody gets around it," Cullen said. "There's just something special about it. We win it, we work really hard to win it ... It's really rewarding and it makes it a lot more special for all of us players, but especially me being able to bring it home and seeing how much people respect it and how much it means to everybody.

"You see that trophy, and it just kind of takes your breath away when you see it, so it's cool. It's fun to bring it home and it's really fun to see people's reactions and how much it means to everybody."
