But they do not control destiny; they cannot see in the futur. If they do sign Hossa for say...6 Mill. Then sign Malone for 5. Can you imagine what would happen in the futur when Sidney and Malkin become free agents(UFA or RFA)...? You cannot have a 70 Million budget for players anymore.

But I think the sticking point will be when Staal has had enough playing on the third line. Add that to the money and he will ask to go.
