again this is all predicated on Parise resigning with us.
There's no way of guaranteeing that happens, and there is no way of minimizing the risk by lowering the package. I don't believe that New Jersey is going to 'rebuild' having just signed Kovalchuk to a life contract, but even if they do, there are a number of options for a Brodeur replacement (Schneider, Bernier, Harding, among others), certainly enough to make Lindback unattractive as a centerpiece for this type of deal. I'd wager most Devils fans would say the same, if asked. It certainly isn't a need they'll be addressing until the off-season.
