If Punk could give Steen a spot, then why isn't Steen signed yet ?
Right now if TNA want Steen, they have a chance of landing him...but they shouldn't waste time. If they want him they have to go get him before Vince and Hunter eventually offer him a deal.
In terms of a long term investment, I personally see Adam Cole as TNA's guy. He's 5 years younger than Steen, great look, great ability, good promo skills and very flexible in all divisions for TNA.
If TNA was smart they would want to sign both Steen and Cole. Steen can debut in the upper card and pay immediate dividends, whereas Adam being younger and a little less seasoned would be a perfect candidate to debut on the bottom and work from the ground up. He's the perfect guy to bring in with the expectation that he can be built up in a year's time to take advantage of Option C.
Steen and Cole are definitely 2 workers they should be looking to snatch up before WWE does. Addition by subtraction if you ask me, add them in and let RVD expire in March and go his own way. Anderson or SuperMex would be the other I'd let walk right now (and yes I'm aware they resigned Hernandez this past summer, but he brings little to no value to the table).

The better year is subject to one's personal opinion. But it doesn't even matter who had the "better year" as they work for different companies and neither has full control and perhaps in Steen's case little control on how they are booked.
All that aside, TNA should never have the mindset of "well we don't need Steen because we have Bully Ray". There is a place for both of them on the roster if TNA were to sign Steen.
And we could all be entertained by a Steen vs Bully feud.
