I would say the team has a good amount of cap space going forward and we can definitely afford to bring in a big name UFA. If we can add one of these guys: Jagr, Sundin, Shanahan it would probably only be for 1-2 year deals or Brian Rolston maybe 3-4 year deal so it wouldn't really affect our ability to re-sign our core players in the future. I wouldn't go after Hossa, his contract will be really huge and long-term.

I know a lot of people expect Komi to get a huge contract something between 5 and 6 million a season, but I really think we overrate him a bit. Komisarek is a beast and want the guy here for a long time, but he is no Dion Phaneuf and I expect him to get a deal done for 3.5-4 million. Volchenkov is the defense man Komi is most comparable to and he recently signed a 3 year 7.5 mil deal.
