Parise has superstar potential.
Brewer-White(hella nasty)
Dandenault(3rd pick hes ours)-Marc Andre Bergeron

trade saves us the growing pains of Semenov.Devils get star center they need for offensive threat and Semenov young solid looking d-man and a good fast prospect in Salmelainen.
Comrie < White(slightly)
Salmelainen+Semenov>Parise (slighlty more then the difference in White for Comrie but am willing to give up a little more for two solid guys and White just signed for $2.5million for 3years? I believe)
and just because Lowe passed on Parise does not mean he does not want him he just thought second pick+Pouliott was greater.
