Zach is staying on the East coast

There are teams like the Avs this offseason. The Avs have to spend close to 30 million (cap wise) to just make the salary floor. They only have 8 players so far signed too 2012-2013. They could throw a monster contract at Zach, and it would be worth it to them.
It's not about Parise. Parise is just an example of the caliber of player we should be pursuing even if we do land Carter. Jeff alone doesn't get us where we need to be, if his acquisition prevents us from going after another top player, then Carter should not be pursued IMO.
