Parise... hey... the Wings and Rangers and everyone else was making him an offer too. We're not Minnesota, we lost. Simple as that. Not a "Shero mistake" in any way, shape or form. That said I think this spring and summer will bring some nice changes, and our D is shaping up well without need of signing over-the-hill veterans, etc.
Ya, the Parise situation was tough. So glad the procedures for that are changing. Hindsight says we should have gone another direction but hindsight is a ***** like that. It's easy to say we should have signed a Parenteau or Hudler, but that would have instantly taken us out of the Parise running.
