I agree with the idea of sending down Lotki maybe, but if we are out of call ups, last thing I'd want is to send him down and rely on Westy and Parse to be the depth pieces should a forward go down.
I hope we give him a one year deal though. He deserves a chance IMO and would be a nice 3rd/4th line option to provide some extra scoring punch from there. This season showed how bad we need that.
Agreed. I wouldn't feel comfortable with those two as the insurance either, but maybe the Kings feel different? Has Parse even played under Sutter?
The sending Loki down was just an idea, the Monarchs are playing a team that is currently riding a 28 game win streak, I have a feeling their playoffs are going to be very short anyways.
I would agree with you on bringing back Parse as a scoring option for the 3rd/4th line, he has some of the best offensive instincts on the team, except that the Kings have Holloway and Moller coming back from Europe, both of whom proved their offensive talent over there, IMO. Not to mention Loktionov and Gagne (if healthy) all pushing around the bottom 6 for some offense and that's ignoring any potential UFA's. I just do not see room for him.
I really do like Parse, I think he has great offensive talnet. But I just think it's time for him and the Kings to move on, I don't think he will be able to find a place here. He can for sure be a solid top 9 offensive guy, maybe even a top 6 winger somewhere else. He proved his offense in 09-10 when he got 27pts in just 53 games played from the 3rd/4th line with very limited minutes (I think he led the team in points per minute that year).
