I like some of your post.

The Parise signing with make Sashagent happy about the direction of the team though and I anticipate Sasha to sign for the vet minimum, thanking the Caps for nearly a decade of commitment.

Parise-Ribs-Semin

Oh and then we get Suter because we tryin to build a dream team of Filadelphia Eaglan proportions.

With July 1 just over a day away, let's hear your predictions:

1. The first signing of the day (league-wide) will be Justin Schultz to Edmonton

2. The Caps will sign Shane Doan, Greg Zanon, Mikael Samuelsson.

3. Zach Parise will sign with Pittsburgh ( )

4. Ryan Suter will sign with Detroit

5. Alex Semin will sign with Detroit (would have put Washington up until today when I read Washington has not yet extended an offer, I still think it's possible though)

6. The most surprising signing will be Martin Brodeur does not return to New Jersey.

7. The biggest bargain will be Greg Zanon or Michael Roszival.

8. The worst value signing will be Matt Carle, Justin Schultz (I think the Oilers might massively overpay him)

9. The most active team will be Detroit.

10. The biggest winners of July 1 will be Detroit.

And here are some extra edgy predictions.

11. Parise's contract is 12 years with a 7.5M cap hit.

12. After Brodeur signs elsewhere, Neuvirth will be traded to New Jersey for a 1st.

13. Luongo is traded to Toronto.

14. Bernier is traded to Columbus.

Schultz is going to get a max ELC wherever he signs. Oil can't overpay him even if they want to.

Really? I thought since the whole Anaheim thing happened and he wasn't signed he was a complete UFA with no ELC required.

EDIT: Thinking about that now, that doesn't make sense.

He gets a 2 year ELC. Everyone's got the same $$ offer, that's what makes it all so interesting.
