Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager Jim Rutherford has won a total of three Stanley Cups with two organizations and new-again Penguins forward Matt Cullen has also won three Cups spread over two clubs, but neither has won a Cup without the other. And so it will be the 41-year-old Cullen’s second chance to end his career with the Penguins.

Cullen signed a one-year, $650,000 contract to return to the Penguins. While the sum may appear insignificant, the Penguins have the least salary cap space available in the league ($745,000), according to CapFriendly.com. Also, because Cullen is over 35-years-old, the Penguins will bear the full cap hit regardless if Cullen finishes the season or makes the team.

So what will be Cullen’s role with the Penguins?
