Agree that Parise isn't a sniper per se. He's a very smart--on the small side--hard working winger who crashes the net--more likely to get dirty goals than clean ones.

Not saying the Rangers won't get him as an UFA but i have a lot of doubt about it. I don't think we'll get Ryan or Nash either--mainly because I think they'll cost too much.

Whitney is too old and Boyes sucks. Rangers offensive stats would be a lot better if they had a better pwp. That might happen sticking with what we have now and adding someone like Suter or someone with a big shot that can play pwp point.

Final analysis though--no matter what we don't have the talent of a healthy Penguins team. We have to close the gap with them in another way. And that will require a commitment to defense.
