When asked about New York, a look came across his face like a wonderful nightmare; like a screaming eagle that flew too close to glory and retreated. “Let’s face it- everyone loves the hussle and bustle of New York” Parise said, a twinkle in his eye. “It’s one of the reasons I want to stay in the area. The glittery sparkling lights of broadway, tall buildings…it has it all.”
He also said yadda yadda I want to stay a Devil yadda yadda Lou Yadda yadda my agent.
Ok cap geeks. Tell us how the Rangers can fit this kid on the roster. Just for fun.
Re-sign prust at 1 mill (so loss .2 from current contract)
Add Kreider assuming .850 (replace Zuc on the 3rd line)
Re-sgn Del Zotto - 1.2 mill (so loss .2 from current contract)
Hagelin - .875
13th Forward - .850
That leaves 6.9 which assumes we sign a backup goalie to a Biron type contract, and whatever 7th man makes a Emmiger contract.

This assumed a few things, but we could def do it. The problem is the year after when Artie, Derek, McD & Sauer need to be resigned.
Year after that Gabby, Cally, Boyle, Rupp, Girardi, Erixon & Hank
It's funny how Devils fans have to come over here and try to convince everybody that he's never leaving.
