None are Parise-- and Parise is a leader already.. Comparing him to Doan is a wash in the leadership department.

Most importantly, his cap hit won't be as high as Parise's and it won't be a long term deal since Couturier, Giroux, Schenn, etc. will need raises soon.
That logic only applies if you think you could get Doan for 2 years. Do you really believe Doan is going to sign a 2 year deal here when he is in demand---just because 'hey, you guys have other players to sign?

Parise is younger.
He's already a leader.
I find it very unlikely Doan is going to sign a two year deal anywhere not named Phoenix.
.. and you can get Parise's cap hit down by contract length, which is less likely with Doan.

It's a no brainer unless Parise signs elsewhere first.
