If Korpedo is indeed ready, it would be disappointing, but if it comes down to icing a roster with all of Korpedo, Voros, Rissmiller, or just Sundin, you gotta go with the latter. Sundin is a lock for 75-80pts, when the combination of the 3 players that we'll either be "holding back" or just dumping in the AHL, would only have produced maybe 50 combined. So yes it's worth it.

How can you turn down any proven top line talent at $2mil for a prospect who might be able to play 2nd line minutes at best?
