We are still going to have a lot money for next offseason and I'm thinking that we could sign Saku for third line or fourth line role (for a lot less ofcourse).
I know this sounds bad but who cares? Teemu will retire after this season IF he plays for us this season. Not to mention after some of the mumbo jumbo he has pulled on us in the past I think he will understand when a business choice is made. I don't see Saku staying here past this season either. If I can get a 2011 2nd rounder for saku I am pulling the trigger on that deal in a heartbeat and I don't care what teemu or anyone else thinks about it if I am Bob Murray.
The 2012-2013 season will be the season of the youth movement and Teemu 99.9% won't be apart of that.
