Just a note, since I see many talking about this... remember that there will be no more contracts over (let's say) 5 years once the new CBA is ratified. And there won't be any more ways to lower cap hits either, given the new rules they want (and will) put in place to prevent circumvention. I know some will say that we don't know this for sure yet, but the NHL will not allow the league to run without those types of rules in place. You can take that to the bank. So offering Parise a BR type contract that lowers the cap hit won't be possible anymore. Unfortunately, we would probably be looking at 5 years and $7.5+ per. It might be even much worse, but he is still worth it IMO. Signing Parise gets us as close to the Stanely Cup as you can get.
