So who is the bottom 6 sandpaper guy that Shero will sign this offseason (and we all know he will).

Doesn't Prust seem to be the most likely? I'm not sure I'd like to give him $2m a season but we'll definitely have the cap room (I'm assuming that we don't sign both Parise and Suter). But we could use his toughness and if I'm not mistaken he's a penalty killer which is never a bad thing to have a surplus of.

If I had a choice though I'd prefer Jordin Tootoo. He produces more points and he fills our 'Jordan/Jordin' void that we have after trading Staal whereas Prust would just be a redundant Brandon

Actually Tootoo seems to miss a lot of games due to injury. I'll put my hopes in signing Prust after adding Parise and Allen or Kuba tomorrow

Once I find our Parise signed elsewhere I plan on crawling into bed and eating an entire quart of ice cream while listening to Adele music and having a good cry.

I'll be just as excited as anyone if we sign Parise, but I have a feeling by this time next year, we'll all be talking about how we "NEED" to sign Shea Weber because we can't rely on such an inexperienced bunch of blueliners to pin our Cup hopes on.

IMHO, Letang and Goligoski had a better group of veteran guys here to ease them into the prominent roles they now have. I just don't see that here with this current group of veterans.

Maybe the best route is to sign Suter. Those kids coming up could learn a ton from him and Letang could too. They'd get sheltered minutes playing behind Letang-Suter and the option is still there to trade one or two of those prospects for a winger on an ELC.

In other words, I'd be happy with either Parise or Suter.

I'm at work from 10am to 8pm, I plan to just keep my phone off and check the sports sites when I get home to see the great news/disappointing news all at once.

What did Ray trade for James Neal and Chris Kunitz again?

I wouldn't care what he moves him for if he's not bringing back salary.

There is some talk that Detroit's Holland is flying out to Toronto to meet with Parise personally tomorrow. Was mentioned on the trade board.

Can we blame Paul Martin if Parise doesn't sign with the Pens?

So is Shero the only GM that isn't going to see him personally tomorrow? If so that doesn't instill me with a lot of confidence

Why not. Guy gets blamed for goals when he isn't even on the ice.

Parise: Alright, I've decided to play the rest of my career with the Penguins organization Ray, now let's start hammering out terms.

Shero: Sounds good... 8 years/62m sound good to you?

Parise: Definitely.

Shero: Alright, cool, now are there any extra conditions you want like NMC, NTC?

Parise: Yeah, I'll take a NTC, not a limited one either like you gave Paul. Wait, speaking of Paul Martin... you're trading him, right?

Shero: No..

Parise: I'm sorry Ray, but I just got another phone call... good chat.

*Parise then signs Minnesota's albatross of an offer of 10 years/110m.*

Hmmm. So all we'd have to do is trade Martin to Minnesota to get Parise to demand a trade to Pittsburgh. Great thinking, Killswitch!

Technically, players can sign anytime they want as long as they don't have a contract. It just so happens contracts expire at noon July 1st (the current crop of Free Agents). So yeah, noon.

Gotta bad feeling about that. I'm pretty sure Ken Holland does something illegal when he gets UFAs all alone.

I propose a drinking game:

whenever Rossi tweets the word 'sources' you take a drink. When he tweets 'I have been told' or 'from what I hear' you finish your glass.
