He is a clutch goal scorer. It would be enormous for us to somehow snatch Parise up. It'd be almost too good to be true. The "ex-Devil" stigma (about how Gomez, Holik, Driver, etc. didn't work out here) is just as irrelevant as those who argued against Brad Richards because of Wade Redden and Chris Drury. I'd go nuts if we sign Parise for nothing but cap-space next summer. I have a feeling he goes to Pittsburgh or Detroit, though, but a lot can change in one year. If the Rangers have a big year and put to rest a lot of the question marks about them being real contenders, why wouldn't Zach want to come here? I don't think "loyalty" to an organization that prioritized him after Kovalchuk would stand in our way.
We won't be as lucky as we were with Richards. I think if Parise comes here, its because we gave him the most money.
