Probably the second one. Who could replace Parise on his own? Expecting him to do that would be unfair. The way we'll replace Parise's production is by having several guys step up, Butler would just be one of them, along with improvements from Josefson and Henrique, the entire fourth line, and Tedenby sticking. I don't think this rules out Sykora being re-signed either, honestly.

Offensively, perhaps. Defensively, it would be an adventure, because the only one I really trust in his own zone is Henrique.
