Talent wise, Zubrus is the superior talent. But, as you know, acquiring "superior talent" isn't necessarily the answer to success. (Ask NYR.)

And Kvashinator, who proposed this deal, suggested that NYI gets a "bigger forward". Size-wise, true, but I question whether you gain anything in the physical department.

Point is, Parrish fits in well on NYI (though he may be expendable at some point, given the emergence of Hunter). Don't think it's as simple as kicking him out and slotting Zubrus in.
I don't disagree with any your points. I wouldn't want to trade Parrish, and I'd personally pass on this deal. That said, I agree with Cap fans who think that Zubrus has higher market value right now. I'd just rather have Parrish.
