If instead of Gaborik and Richards, we had Toffoli and Vey, with over $11 extra in salary cap space (more than enough to outbid anyone for a young guy like Parise instead of having two guys on their downswing), we'd be looking much better right now.

Next year's squad would look something like this:

Parise - Stepan - Nash
Hagelin - Toffoli - Callahan
Kreider - Miller - Fasth
Hrivik - Boyle - Vey/MZA

That's a young, up and coming squad that can actually put the puck in the net.
Parise was never coming here. Not sure what assets you planned on giving up to LA either.
