given the sweepstakes the hype machine/his agent have created, I'd rather not see the Habs sign him.

hard to imagine that he'll be able to step into the NHL and contribute immediately, he may, but it's certainly not a gurantee.

with all of the young forwards we already have jockeying for top minutes/pp time, I'd hate to see us bring in someone and have the staff obliged to give him a bigger "leash" on account of his contract/inability to send him down.

I'd much rather see Gainey make a hard run at Selanne. Imo he's a perfect fit. He won't demand the same type of salary (both years and cost) as Hossa, but he's still got enough in the tank, imo, to contribute a 70-80 point season, or two.

the attraction of playing with koivu, and playing for a team with young talent and primed to become a serious contender might just be enough to lure him away from sunny southern cal...
