Even if we can't add Parise, we should try to add a good two-way 20-goal scorer to replace Mitchell. Kreider+another decent scorer replacing Mitchell and Feds would still add about 25 goals, enough to make us a strong offensive threat.

If we can't add Parise, I think we should go hard after Ryan Suter. Then, if we still need offense at the deadline, we can make a deal if necessary.

Parise and Suter fit the identity of this team perfectly. Adding either one or both (highly unlikely) would be huge for the growth of the team into perennial contenders. Adding either one to this current core without losing any assets like we would in a trade is the best possible scenario.
