Ok, so let's say if we sign Parise, we will then a year or two later have to trade away Dubinsky for prospects and picks. How's that bad?

First, we can win the Cup in the year or two he's still here.

Second, Parise is better than Dubinsky, so we are upgrading our NHL roster PLUS we would significantly improve our farm system. Dubi can easily bring back a very good prospect plus a first rounder.

So let's say we get Parise, first rounder and a good prospect instead of Dubinsky, and we get both Dubinsky and Parise for at least as a season or two. How is that worse than just keeping Dubi and passing on Parise?
