as for Rozsival, it depends on the terms in both $$$ and years.

You have to remember just how sparse quality dmen are and the one's that do become available either have flaws to overlook or in the case of Campbell will be getting 6.5 per for 5 or 6 yrs.

as for aging superstars you have to remember something, if they sign a one yr deal as Mats has been doing there is little to no downside as it offers flexiblity for the future while providing a stopgap until somebody younger is ready as well as if they really underperform you can bury the salary in the minors and avaoid tha cap hit in the 1st yr of a 35+ yr old players unlike if you give 2 yrs where you're on the hook in that 2nd year regardless.

Sundin still has some hockey left in that big body and as shown by Jagr don't underestimate a great aging players desire to win the Cup, especially Mats who's yet to do it.
