1. The CBA is going to be drastically overhauled. He will never be able to sign for as much as he will this summer. The silly money being thrown around to guys like Jones, Stoll and Wideman must have Parise licking his chops. If the going rate for 3rd liners is 4 million, second liners must be 5-6, what is the rate for a legit star player like ZP?
The market is and has always been what is someone willing to pay. And we all know that Crosby took a hometown discount to be in Pitt for life. But that does bring the market down some. Price is also a function of supply and demand and most anyone I have talked with or even heard talking about the UFA market it is soft this year.
But the big thing going on right now is that a team like Detroit who has been good for so many years has 24 in cap space and only needs to sign 4 players. So they are able to throw crazy money out there. And any player looking at going to a contender will consider an offer made from them.
Just looking at contracts from where they were last year and how much the cap went up Parise got 6 last year and the cap rose by almost 10% so the starting place is 6.6 unless he takes a discount or signs a big long term deal to lower the cap hit.
