However, if all NHL players were dumped into re-draft of all 30 NHL teams, I'm certain Parise would be taken in the top 5-15, specifically with the mentality that he'd be a team's franchise player.
I don't know if he's go in the top 5-15.

In no particular order:
Crosby
Ovechkin
Stamkos
Miller
Lundquist
Doughty
Toews
M. Richards
E. Staal
Keith
H. Sedin
Nash
Getzlaf
Zetterberg
Chara
.....

I mean, I agree he probably would get picked before #30 is up; so maybe in that sense he's a franchise player. I don't know. In any event, the point is just, I don't think Karlsson for Parise makes sense.
