I disagree completely with signing Parrish over Bates. Assuming that Bates' contract is not outrageous, then you are talking about a small cap hit. Parrish' contract demands are most likely much higher (2.5-3?), meaning that signing him would have a much bigger effect on the moves that the new GM could make.

I think this comes down to
1) Bates giving the Isles a discount (at least that's what it sounds like in the article)
2) MM judging that with the cap going up, continued increase in penalties, new rules that players who can skate and kill penalties may be seeing inflated offers over the summer.
