If the cap share will go down from 57% to 50% of the revenue, the salary cap will be $66,666,000.

We can afford to give Parise $7.5 and still will have a million in cap space left. And that's assuming we re-signing MZA and Prust, and that here would be no salary roll-back. There is also a good chance that the share would be a little above 50%.

In 2013, we will have no UFAs to sign, and we'll have 5 RFAs. Assuming that MZA and Prust are on 1-year contracts (or get traded away 12 months from now), we will have over $4 million for pay raises.

I think it will in fact be higher than $4 because we'll see be salary roll-backs and/or the NHL revenue will increase in the next year.

If we get about $7 to spend, which is more than reasonable, we won't have to trade away anyone. If the worst case scenario happens, we might have to deal away Dubinsky for picks/prospects, but Parise (plus prospects) is better than Dubinsky, and even in the worst case, we still get both of them next season.
