In the grand scheme of things Nashville is about the same distance for him then Detroit. Plus DRW have for years wanted to be moved to the East. So that might be a factor.
He might be using DRW and CBH to increase Nashville's offer to keep him or might take slightly less.

As for Parise, I think he goes back home to Minny.
NJD seems to be unstable financially and Marty has 2 years left.
He hates Philly.
In Pitt/CHI he will not be a captain but a core piece. Will he accept that?
With Pitt/CHI being player core heavy it really doesn't guarantee SC. A core player from each team will be lost within 3-4 years.
In Minny he will be the face of the franchise and continue to increase USA hockey in Minny.

I can't imagine what Shea Weber will command next year. 8+?
so why not include Minny in that above statement I put in red.......do you think Koivu is going to roll over and die or just voluntarily give Parise the C?
