If I'm Parise, and I get offered a Quick-like contract to play for the Kings, I take that deal in a heartbeat if his #1 priority is trying to win sometime in the next few years. If the Pens offer Parise a similar deal, then I think it's a much tougher choice and the Penguins probably have an edge.
The Kings have as good a chance as anyone to do that again and they can offer a lot of stability within the roster. All the biggest impact players are all signed long-term. That's a pretty rare carrot to dangle.
I would hope he goes there but since he made 6 this year just going off the cap increase would be around 6.6.
But the problem is the amount of money Det has they can offer both Parise and Suter 8 mil each and not even blink.
