The Rangers gave Brad Richards a 9 year deal worth $60M last summer (AAV of $6.67). With signing bonuses, Richards will earn $24M in the first two years of his contract, then he will earn $9M in year three, $8.5M in years four and five, $7M in year six, and then drops to $1M in the final three years.

This could be the final year that teams could offer deals like that, so if the Kings want to impress Parise and his reps, they may have to make a big splash like the Rangers did with Brad Richards.
