Worst case, when\if Parent leaves, we sign someone to play on the third pairing cheaply and fill that role.
I still think Parent suprises us. He had a hurt back last year, and we have a guy that might know a good chiropractor . If he can fix his back and Franson continues to grow the way he did last year, I think Franson/Parent will surpass Klien/Cube as our #2 pairing by the All-Star Break.

As for the thread, I bet he gets a similar deal to Parent. 2mil/2yrs sounds solid to me
