sorry, edit: 1 goal in 3 games, that should have said.

Parise should be our backup plan to Suter.
I would agree with this if Suter was already Devil.

Fact of the matter is it's easier to re-sign a player than sign a UFA. While we're courting Suter, we could lose Parise and then lose Suter as well.

Sign what you have first, add onto it second.

2nd place really shows how much the team improved because we got an offensive D-man. If it wasn't for Zidlicky this team would be no where. It also helped that Salvador scored at a great rate which helped the team too.

Only 1 thing is proven, if we get the #1 puck moving D-man, we win the cup. If that means Parise has to go, I hope so. This team doesn't need a mediocre playoff performer, it needs that D-man 10x more.

Exactly. I agree that he "works his butt off and leads by example", but there are plenty of players like that around (hell, you could say Cam Janssen works his butt off too....). For my money, he's a nice player and I'd sign him to a 7-year, $42mil, contract in a second. If he wants to stay for that, I welcome him with open arms and will accept what he brings to the team and overlook the deficiencies in his game.

Pick between them? Are they both lying on Lou`s desk or something?
