Of the teams that are now over $60, the Rangers have more dead weight coming off the books than just about anyone else. WW, MZA, Feds, Avery and Drury are an $11 saving without a significant loss to the lineup.
If the Rangers can't fit Parise under the cap, then pretty much no playoff team can. He will have a choice to either join the Islanders/Florida or get paid less than he had hoped to get from a playoff team.
Assuming he doesn't just go for the money from a crappy team where he has to play with PAP as his line mate, even if the impossible happens and the cap is cut immediately and without a salary rollback, we would still be in the game.
