I see what everyone is talking about with the pricetag with what Parise would cost.. But a 28yo 1st line LW, who is basically an 80pt player who plays in all facets of the game is worth the 6.5m per year contract. \

He would finally make us a cup contender and give us a complete elite 1st line.

We could spread out our scoring to have 2-3 top lines with an outstanding goalie and young talented defense.

He would come here bc its not a big move from NJ. NYR are a MUCH better team, young and primed for a cup run and to continue to get better. Plus he would not have to be a captain.

Our money problems wont be to much of an issue. We have a constant influx of young guys coming into our lineup. With players like Wolski, Avery, EC, MZA, and Feds not coming back we are saving 9-10m in the cap. Signing Parise for caphit of 6.5, would leave us with 2.5m remaining. Giving us a lineup of this..

Dubinsky Richards Gaborik
Parise Stepan Callahan
Krieder Anisimov Thomas
Rupp Boyle Prust

We also have alot of ifs and question marks on defense with who will step up and improve and who doesnt belong. If Sauer and Mcdonagh can continue their progress and show they are capable of pushing Girardi down the depth chart and Erixon can play well enough to be on par with Girardi, then by next year we could make a big splash in a trade..

Maybe a Girardi, Boyle, b- prospect, for something.

Alot will depend upon different players this season. So we will see..
If salary cap in the future you think will be the problem well i dont really see it that way. Gaborik comes up in 2 years and we can save that money from him and use it other places or we can resign him for cheaper than what he is making and for less years. Then there are players like Boyle who can be traded, along with Girardi. Its a problem for us to have but a good problem. We could end up set up just like the Bruins are.. All that great talent, along with alot of young talented players coming up.. they were able to trade Kessel.. for everything they got. Why couldnt that happen with us, signing parise, then making a trade in the next year of a Gaborik, Girardi, ++ for Doughty aha
