Excluding the "top" guys like Parise, about the only other guy I see on the FA list who might bring the respect and hunger for a Cup win is Lee Stempniak. Not sure about his ankle injury recovery. Also not sure how positionally versatile he is.

* same age as Penner.
* wouldn't break the bank.
* never won the Cup.
* 28 points in 61 reg season games vs. Penner's 17 in 65.
* has played in the West before so shouldn't have an issue with coming here.

Remember, the key thought here is not necessarily to land the "big fish", but to bring in a guy who fits, who's skilled, who's never won the Cup and can help motivate those who have.

Gagne on the 2nd line, Stempniak on the 3rd.
