How are you losing more scoring if you can use the 3M saved to sign Parise too.

Last time I checked, you would have MORE scoring if you had Parise and Backes.

Also, don't tell me we can afford both Parise and Gaborik because we have a lot coming off the books this year. With fellow young players getting raises in the future, you'd be put in a bad situation.
There is certainly no guarantee that Parise is signing with the Rangers, in fact, I see him re-upping with the Devils as soon as the playoffs are over. You then bank on a top 6 filled with grinders and Brad Richards to score goals. I'm not even the biggest Gaborik fan, but I'd look for a legit goalscorer in return - someone like Bobby Ryan.

You can afford Gaborik and Parise for 2 years and when Gaborik is a UFA, he'll be unsigned most likely. I doubt McDonagh, Stepan or Del Zotto will be making a lot as they are RFAs and Sather is great with these contracts.
