Don't get me wrong, Sundin is a great player and i've always admired him...i just don't like offering a ton of money to a guy who is aging and has never really accomplished anything team-wise in his career.
Don't hide your head in the sand... We finished first because of and only because of Kovalev who had a great season this year. As good as our young guys are, romove Kovalev from the equation and we're not even close to the 1st place.

The Kostitsyn would not have gotten 40 points together if it wasn't about Kovy.
Plekanec would have gotten less than 60 points.
Koivu would have been worst again.
Every single player would have had less room to deal with on the ice.

If Kovalev only knows an ok season next year, don't cheat yourself, we're back between 6 and 9.
