Not only Rolston but also all of our 08-09 and 09-10 RFA. Higgins , Plekanec , Komisarek , AK-46 , Latendresse , O'Byrne , Lapierre , Gorges and Grabovski. Yeah we probably won't sign them all but that's still a lot of players to sign if we want to keep our core and some of them will ask for5 a big raise (Komi and Plekanec in particular). If we do want to sign two big UFAs like Rolston and Hossa and keep our core then say goodbye to Koivu and Kovalev next year. I do think we would be a better team with Rolston + Hossa + our core than with Koivu and Kovalev but that's beside the point anyway.

The best scenario would be to sign Rolston or keep the status quo. I don't want Hossa long term @ 8m + per year even if i do think that this is the guy that Bob is going to aggressively go after.
