Zach Parise Possible Acquisition in Offseason

I know it's early, but can the Habs make a run at Zach Parise in the offseason? He'd be that legit #1 C we're looking for. I know he's a winger, but he has played C before and could very well fill that void IMO. If we buy out Gomez or send him to the minors, we could definitely make a decent offer for him. I don't see NJ resigning him with the ownership issues they're having and such.

Now here are the approximate numbers:

As of now, we have 9M in cap space, but with all the free agents this offseason, we're going to have approx. 23M in cap space. Buying out Gomez or ensuring he's in the minors would bump the cap space up to around 30M+. Habs would need to resign (IMO) Price, Subban, Moen, Emelin, Diaz, Eller and White (if I'm forgetting a key asset, please correct me cause I'm doing this off the top of my head). Now, I feel like despite the number of players we still need to resign, Parise still remains in the cards. Don't forget, Parise's Dad does have a French Canadian background, which may influence his decision to become a Hab

What do you guys think? Should the Habs make a run at him or are there other more important positions we need to fill before thinking about Parise?

Yes. Tha habs should definitely make a pitch for Parise, not to use him as a center, but as a winger.

He should remain a winger, but hell yeah, I want him. He brings a complete game. Him and Cole. o.O

if he is a free agent many teams will call in

we have to too. If theres one thing we might have against other teams is money and we should use it. Offer whatever he wants and overpay too just get the job done

finally bringing a big name free agent will get us back up there.

but use as LW

If we get Parise, DD and Gio have to go.

Gomez to the AHL
Sign Parise for 7.3M
Draft Grigorenko

It's worth a try. Both are defensively responsible but capable of scoring.

Would love Parise, but would rather go after some defensemen. If we could add Suter and tough mid tier dman that would be great. Not sure how much money we would have after that.

38 and 45 goals two and three years ago not good enough for you?

this is likely

only reasoni can think of why NJ can't resign him before FA is that they couldnt offer him enough money

Yup, I think it'd work. I guess you'd put Gio on the RW?

Parise, Stamkos, Malkin and Grigorenko could not win us a cup with our current defense.

He's the best possible player to fill out the top six and give Plekanec the kind of winger that could make playing such tough minutes work.

But I doubt Montreal gets him even if they were willing to pony up 8 million in cap space.

Well, that's my point. They have major ownership issues right now. I don't see them affording what he likely will want (which is probably in and around what Gomez is making).

Parise would fit so well with Plekanec.

Parise is the kind of talent you overpay for though. One of the best two way wingers in the league.
