I'm only assuming for that moment. Throughout this thread I've stated that there is no possible way Lou would deal Parise to the Rangers, making such a deal would only make the Rangers stronger competitors.

Only way Lou MIGHT, and I mean MIGHT, give up Parise is if another star like Staal is coming his way.
