If we're going to spend 5M on any guy in the next month or so, spend it on Naslund. Don't get me wrong - I like Ziggy, but he's simply not worth that kind of money.
And if Naslund isn't available, DT should save the money and wait until next year - Lecavlier, Thornton, Samsonov, Iginla, etc.
You also have to consider there is only 1 Forsberg and onlt 1 Naslund. I think the Kings might try to sign what they consider a "for sure" deal with Palffy rather than risk going after a Forsberg or Naslund. If they pass on Palffy and then miss out on Forsberg or Naslund they might end up empty handed in the "marquee player" department. And in this post lockout world the Kings are going to need someone who can bring the fans back.
