All of of these back-up plan centermen will be gone if we wait too long:
Of course Shanny would be a good fit...leadership wise he would be awesome.
From the list of centers you just mentionned, I only wanted Federov but he is gone now. Peca would be an ok signing but we have to UNDERPAY for him because he WILL get injured. Great character guy though and very good defensive forward and is pretty physical. Forsberg: he would have to take a HUGE paycut...but he won't. And he WILL get injured. Morrisson: I don't really like him that much. Have been leeching off Naslund for years... Is he good defensively though??? Gratton... meh... I prefer our kids. Perreault: meh...see Gratton. Smoke: hell no!!!!!
so I'd be looking only at Peca on your list...with a 1.5 mill salary max. If Forsberg would be asking 3 mill or less, I'd sign him with bonuses on games played (although the bonuses count against the cap).
Better...I'd keep the money and space for Sundin for when/if he is ready. Preferably halfway through the season (the ducks way). Imagine Sundin and Forsberg both signing here halfway through the season!!!! (for those to whom you need to explain everything to: I know this won't happen)
