Naslund can still compete but he will ask for big money and a multi-year deal. If Selanne does not retire or stay in Anaheim, he'll be looking for a place where he can hoist the Cup possibly and do it on the (relative) cheap for a one-year deal.

Hossa at anything under $8M is a better bet than either guy at any money IMO. I know Gainey doesn't like to open the checkbook that wide but they have the money and this year's playoffs showed they are still not quite there with this group of young guys.
you will never KEEP or LURE a player, of BIG talent, unless you pay.
