For the love of God, Parise needs to sign. He's making things boring

NJ gets rid of the trap so he decides to trap the free agency market.

I'm really hoping for an underdog on this one. None of Pit/Phi/Det/Min/Chi, someone like Winnipeg or Ottawa.

How is Minny not an underdog in all this? The only thing we have going for us is hometown advantage and that isn't all that much for most people.

My guess is he'll wear #11 when he comes to Minnesota.

I think which ever team gets him will regret anything higher than a 7M - 7.5M cap hit.

that being said, I think he's choosing between Pittsburgh (championships), Philly (money) or Minnesota (loyalty to hometown and potentially being "the guy" who put a franchise on his back and made them a legit contender)

real tough decision
Haha, this guy... like Philly isn't a Cup contender with Parise.

It's getting to the point of the ridiculous. It's like he wasn't aware he was about to become a free agent. Christ him/Suter aren't the 1st 2 superstars to hit free agency.

I agree, it's to the point where the best free agents will be making Crosby/Malkin/Stamkos money while not being anywhere in that league.

id like to see minnesota make a splash. I think their fans deserve to see a winner. When they were healthy they seemed like a pretty effective team.

Wouldn't even say they're SUPERstars, really good players..definitely.

Reality is, if they weren't in it for the $$ they would have had their minds made up on the 1st. They want to be on contenders I think, but at the same time maximize their salary, therefore the highest bidding contender will land either player. Which, in turn, will be a cap burden on said contender to fill other holes in the roster.

Crosby didn't take a pay raise, Shero unloaded Staal's salary in the trade, he dumped Michalek's salary in the trade.....it's almost like this was known. The smiles from Bylsma during the interview at the draft...it's almost like they were very confident they would land him.

There's no doubt that Crosby and Parise talk, and talk a lot. I'm pretty sure they've discussed him playing his wing and therefore Sid signed a contract to allow room for Parise.

Again, this is all speculation, but even if it's close to being true, I can't see Parise going somewhere else after Sid didn't even take a pay raise to allow room for him. That, and the fact that Shero unloaded salary as well. Crosby hasn't had a high end winger since Hossa, and he made the sacrifice so that Shero could get him one. I'm sure Crosby had an idea of whether or not Parise was coming. If he wasn't coming, I'm sure he would have told Sid before he signed his contract.

I dunno, just my two cents.
Holy self-serving speculation batman... You made up an imaginary set of events to make you feel better about the hopes of a free agent signing with your team. Great job!
