i could definitely see pitches to callahan (if available), moulson, gaborik and stastny.
Don't think anybody will dispute we have to overpay for talent, but there's definitely a difference in the extent to which we'd overpay for it. A player like Moulson, 30 goal scorer, one-dimensional, lacks the ability to create his own offense, is overpaid at $6M per, as is a Callahan, but I could see some case to be made that we need to overpay those types of guys to bring them in. $7M-$7.5M per, as you proposed in another thread, would be a poor deal for us. He's not a top-line center, and he's not a forward that can be the focal point of your offense, he doesn't deserve to get paid like one, Nashville premium or no.
