I think Parenteau will easily command up to $3M in the open market and would be worth retaining, depending on how he performs of course. But this is all a pipe dream...
I would love to get P.A. Parenteau. He's a better version of Justin Williams and would be a much better option than Ales Hemsky. All three are playmaking wingers. I believe that Parenteau would improve our powerplay drastically, with more puck posession. So far it has been shots from the perimeter and it has not worked well without Smyth, Simmonds and Handzus. Furthermore, I believe that Parenteau could help DD back to 2009/10 form.
I would offer Martinez(+) for Parenteau.
1) Rick Nash
2) PA Parenteau
3) Steve Downie
I hope we get one of them.
