I'd like to see what team pays Parise 10 mil. Yes, players are overpaid in free agency, but that's just outrageous. It's a stretch for a contender to pay him over 7, imo.
Again, if the cap rises to $70 million, which is a big if, that is a 10% increase in one year. So $7 million last year would be almost $8 million today. Add to it a UFA premium, a LOT of cap challenged teams suddenly finding an extra 10% of cap space under their christmas trees creating competition, and it is not all that outlandish.
