I agree with your point very much. It's a tough spot to be in with the new CBA and no idea of what a Parise/Suter contract looks like in this current CBA environment. I just think that with the new CBA we have to be a lot closer to competing financially with the big dogs than ever before and as such would expect to see us come off of our old contract standards, at least for keeping our own top notch ufas.

Watching the contract status and trade rumors might be as much fun as watching the games the rest of the year. :-)
