As for playing time, I wouldn't worry about that either. Koivu and Plek would get softer minutes, which would be great for their ES production. Someone would move to the wing on the PP. If you want an example of this arrangement working out, look at the Penguins (Crosby, Malkin & Staal).
We could haggle him down to 6 million + 1 in bonus playoff incentives. Plus he's actually an elite player in the NHL and sundin on a GOOD TEAM would actually be amazing. Remember the beginning of this season before he got burned out because he was doing ALL the work for his team?

Imagine Sundin on a team where he didn't have to carry the entire team on his back. This guy is a Forsberg calibre guy, he's just been stuck on a dead end team for years, do not underestimate his abilities.
