If the isles are going to move Parrish (which it looks like they are going to do) then the best I've heard so far is Arnason, unless there is some package that could be put together to land Ruutu.
Appreciate the insight on Safranov.
IMO, a Parrish for Arnason trade is simply spinning wheels on the part of NYI. The difference in the players will never be more than marginal, and Parrish currently is the more accomplished player.
Yes, Arnason is younger, blah, blah, blah :p , but Parrish is only 26 and should have many productive (20+ goal) years ahead. Besdies, why would a team at NYI's stage want to go younger at that spot?
Strictly economic$. Make me ill.
