That's a cap hit of $7.5.
How did I calculate this? Brad is 3 years younger and Parise is a better player. Brad got $57 over 6 years plus another three years for the cap. That's $9.5 annually plus those 3 years.
You have to figure Parise gets a contract to the age of 40 like all superstar do.
At 9 years times $9.5, we are talking about $85.5. Add another three years at $1, and it's now $88.5.
I added an extra $1.5 over all these years because I expect more teams to bid on Parise than Brad. Star left wings are very rare, more than centers or right wings.
At a minimum, he will get $84, which would be $7 a year, not $6.5. But I fully expect something closer to $90 than $84. Maybe $88$89.

And if he is a 40/40 player this year he'll be worth 7+ per year going forward. A few years late, but Sather could finally make the 2003 draft right. lol
