I think that if Teemu retires after this year, Saku will want to come here or retire. If that's true, would we want him? I think he would be a decent player between Havlat and Latendresse because of Mikko's chemistry with Bruno.
Not saying that it is an easy sell on either, but it's a better shot than trading for Briere.

And BigT summed up Saku well enough - after last summer's shennigans, it's hard to bet on the Koivus being united.
