If we can get:

Naslund at $3 million.
Hossa at $8.5 million.
Orpik at $3.5 million.
Ruutu at $1.25 million.
Fleury at $4.5 million.
Adam Hall at $950,000.
And rotate those guys above on two-way contracts.

I will be very, very happy.

With Naslund on a 1 year deal, we'd have $10 million free to reup our RFA's and fill in the defense (Goligoski, UFA, Scuderi resigning).

Let's Go Pens!
I just do not see Shero overpaying for Hossa. I think he offered him what he sees his value at and thats it. I am sort of resigned to the fact that Hossa will be gone. We will have a ton of room to improve our club in the coming years though.
