Just wanted to confirm that.

EDIT: Also, we are the No.1 scoring team in the NHL, what does Parise do for us? Much rather have a better goalie.
Potential rental. He COULD be resigned after the season, though it is unlikely. Plus, I have said it many times before, and I know it is only my opinion, but JVR doesn't look like a guy that will be a PPG superstar in this league. He will be a solid player in my opinion, but he's not going to score 50 goals or get 100 points any time soon. I wouldn't trade him just to trade him, but if the Flyers could get a guy like Parise for the playoffs, I wouldn't be opposed to it. You would have to think of it as JVR (plus whatever else may or may not be dealt) for Parise plus a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd round pick (or whatever his rights are traded for), assuming he isn't resigned. That being said, I think it is pretty clear that this would NEVER happen.
