Reasons for not coming here:
1. He would piss of and downright betrayal his current fan base.

2. He would face a lot of pressure, you just do not get any good will by taking the bridge over to Manhattan.

3. Options! What team would not bid for him? Colorado? Detroit? Philly?

Look, we are a good option and could be a even better option next year -- but there are other very good options too. I mean even if we weren't worst rivals today -- it's still perfectly possible that we wouldn't be the front runners.
Good points. Past history UFA pickups from New Jersey have never worked out. Parise might be different but there's a sideshow aspect to it all that is definitely a negative.

And to be honest if Shea Weber is available I'd be more interested in him than Parise. Rangers should have enough cap space to make one major UFA pickup next year--if they can or it's worthwhile.
