1. Doan waives his no-trade clause. Not likely, but if his family is okay with it, he might be into being on a team willing to spend to the cap. The guy obviously wants to win and he gets a chance to play with better offensive players than he has for a while (ever?)
2. Yandle is asking for $$$$$.
3. Parise is hesitant to resign with NJ.
From a NJ perspective, they become a much more rounded team. Yandle is exactly who they need on their defence and he may take another step in his development. Doan is a great leader and consistently elevates his game in big situations. Parise is a great leader, but IMO Doan is a cut above in that department.
From a Phoenix perspective, they are clearly in need a real game-breaking forward. A guy who can consistently keep them in games that they shouldn't be in. Something like Gaborik was for the Wild. Also get a nice piece in Palmieri.
@rt Why? The Coyotes would actually shed cap and I'm pretty sure you could resign Parise if you gave him a good contract offer of 7.2 M or so.
He leaves Phoenix so he can
Doan isn't going anywhere. New Jersey perhaps least of all places.
Parise? 7.2m? How many years? Seven? You think the NHL is going to green light 50 million garanteed dollars? They are trying to sell the team for 50 million more than it's worth! That worth, by the way, isn't a whole lot more than double that 50 dang million it'd take to sign Parise. These aren't "ifs" they are just plainly absurd. There is a difference.
