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.
Parise is worth NOWHERE near 8 million. At most I would pay 6.5 for the guy and that's pushing it. He's a glorified grinder.
