They want a bidding war on Parise and are hoping he'll not end up a Ranger and especially hoping he ends up in the West. If we want Parise, we will have to wait until July 1st.
We won't get Parise no matter how you look at it. We have $15M in Cap Space next year, the Devils have $25M. Unless Parise refuses to resign, the Devils will have no problem bringing him back. Drop the cap because of the CBA and we might have anywhere from $12-13M. Not close to enough.
