I think they go and get Parise as he is exactly what this team needs.

As for potential cap issues 2 summers from now, if Parise is for us what he is for the Devils and Hagelin continues to get better and Kreider gives us even 20+ goals and 40+ points. Brandon Dubinsky and his 4 million become the odd man out.

In a capped world, these issues are going to crop up. That's why it's more important than EVER to ensure that we draft good talent and properly develope that talent so that tough decisions like trading a Dubinsky or an Anisimov don't really set the franchise back.

Additionally, moving one of those guys to replenish the system is probably the best way ensure long-term viability in terms of being a cup contender.

I'm not worried about the 2013 summer on July 1st 2012. Sorry. I'm not.
