It's not a matter of either/or.

If Sather and Jagr could have each compromised on the terms of a new contract, it changes the whole summer. With Jagr in the lineup, it's easy to rationalize Sundin. Without acquiring Voros/Rissmiller/Naslund/Zherdev/Fritsche, you can make a case for "sticking with the old guard" and finding roles for Shanny and Straka somewhere. The reality is, it's not the case. You can argue all day about whether or not you think either is better than someone that's already on the roster, it doesn't matter. This Ranger team doesn't have any use for Shanahan or Sundin at this point.
