Not sure how ad nauseum this will be, but I'm looking at post-season right-wing acquisitions. The possibilities for UFAs would be Semin and Parenteau mainly, although the latter will most likely resign in NYI. Would a discounted Semin (5 to 5.5 million at most) be of value to any of you? Or you think Connolly from a TB trade is a done deal at this point?
To be honest I think Parise would be the absolute best fit on this team as it would really give us an elite level of talent that plays a similar game to Kesler/Booth, possibly complimenting that line or making the Sedin line truly terrifying, but can the conversion to right wing take place? And how much do you think he'll ask? I see Semin and Parise as roughly the same value in a vacuum, but obviously trending in different directions after this season. I just can't see us signing Parise for more than 6 million though when you take into account Gillis' policy on discounted salaries. Guess it depends if Parise is after the money or really wants to win.
