I'm sure he is looking at Parise and Carter. Probably Selanne too. But when he realizes that those players either aren't available (Carter, Selanne) or will cost him a stupid amount to get (Parise), its highly likely he comes to the best available rental forward who is not in the untouchable category. And that is Ales Hemsky. We already know from last year that he likes Hemmer too. The only things that need to be sorted out is the fair price...which nobody on HF will ever agree, and Lombardi and Tambellini may or may not agree on.
