What Regier should do is explain to Parise's agent about how much cap space Buffalo will have next summer. Explain that if Parise signs a two year deal in Buffalo for the cap space they have right now (about 7.5-8.0 mil, same as Pitt's offer), next summer Buffalo will sign him to an extension that provides a raise into the range of 8.5 mil, for another 8 years.

Parise alone might not be worth 8.5 mil, but what Parise can do to provide a legit top scoring line that also causes mis-matches down the depth chart IS worth it. After another couple years of the salary cap increasing, 8.5 mil won't seem too bad either.
