2) Half the price than what Parise will require and the ability to retain all of our assets after next year when literally every talented, young player on the team will become a RFA.

That said, SIGN HIM SLATS!!!
I believe the Rangers will be able to keep whoever they want to after next year. They will eventually have to make decisions and in (2) years Gaborik is a UFA.

(1) That is why I want Beach added to the forward corps. He adds much more sandpaper and has a similar ceiling. Parise is not a soft player either.
