It all depends on who the target player(s) is(are). The higher the talent, the more you'll have to pay.

Koivu, Kovalev, Higgins, Tanguay (although injured I know), both Kostitsyn, Plekanec, D'Agostini... they're all in a very similar mold. They can show grit at times, but it's not in their nature. Nothing wrong with that, but you need a better balance in your line-up.

We need skills/grit ala Iginla, Morrow, Getzlaf, Perry, Cole, Smyth, Doan, Bernier, Brown, Arnott, Langenbrunner, Tkachuk, Guerin, Heatley, Hartnell, Malone... you know, guys with who play like Kostopoulos but with a lot more skills.
