If they think it can push them over the hump they won't give it a second thought. They didn't spend 196 million on Parise and Suter to play conservative in a situation that could get them a cup.

Parise Koivu Kessel (7yr 50 mil)
Coyle Granlund Setoguchi
Bulmer Brodziak Clutterbuck
3 million dollar 4th line

Suter Gilbert
Brodin Dumba
Scandella Falk

4 million dollar goalie
Harding

1.5 million for 7th D/13th F

That's about a 64 million dollar team, right around the cap for next summer. And they can still cut the fat from Gilbert, a million from the 4th line, perhaps get a 2-3 million dollar starter or Hackett at entry level money. There's tons of ways for it to happen.

Maybe they decide Kessel's style doesn't fit them, that's about all I can see.
