Don't discount that remote possibility that Weber and Parise are also UFAs next year entirely, either.

After this past UFA season, both those guys should be looking for major long-term cap circumvention deals with insane front-loaded money. No telling if Nashville and New Jersey are willing/able to offer that kind of front-loaded money.

In fact, even Kovalchuk didn't get frontloaded money from NJ. The first two years of his deal only paid $6m each. It was the third year and after that jump up beyond $11m, which I always found peculiar. EDIT: So Kovalchuk will get $5m more in real cash at the same time Parise's new contract will be kicking in.
