So you say "but what about Quick?" If they did the same thing with Quick on a front loaded, long term extension that averages to $6M, they could fit both players and the rest of the team under the cap in 2013. That would be quite the team the Kings could be icing if it happened, but it is a long shot. Rumors are that Parise is going to land in either Pittsburgh or Detroit.
I'd love to have Parise. Kopitar needs an elite player on his wing. Who else would there be in the next 2 or 3 years the could fill that? I don't think he goes to Pittsburgh. They need defense but you never know with Shero Am I the only one that isn't scared at the thought of him going to Detroit? They would be great but I don't see him making them an unbeatable team like many people predict. I think he goes to Minnesota and Sutter goes to Detroit.
