Will/Should we go after Parrish

this summer? Granted he isn't re-signed by then. I'd love to have him back but I don't know if there's any room for him anymore. The Satan-York-Hunter line should be a lock next year, and I'm loving this Bergenheim-Yashin-Nilsson line also. Would it be a good idea to bring in Parrish as a third liner/PP specialist?

No. Time to move on. Lots of wingers, need some D or maybe a centre.

i would love Parrish back but fact is we can't spend the money it takes to get him because we have to focus that cash in other areas.

I was a big fan of Parry, but I think it's time to move on. He will just cost more than he really is worth given our depth at RW and our dearth at other positions. Hopefully, we will have a team where lots of guys dig and hustle and go to the net, so that Parry's "only guy who goes to the net" contribution will not be missed much. And I'd like to see us build a team like we've seen since the trade deadline, one that is fast and tenacious and physical, and Parry's style does not fit with that. I wish him all the best, but I think it's time to move on, and I'm excited at our prospects!

No need to pay 3m+ for a one-dimensional player when we already have 7+m tied up long term in a zero-dimensional player...

I totally agree that it is time to move on. I appreciated him while he was here, but as Joe C. noted above, we're moving towards a different type of team.

HOWEVER, does anyone else get those "Orange and Blue Review" emails from NYI.com? They sent one yesterday and this part was very interesting to me...

Quote:

MARK OF GREATNESS
The Islanders did a magnificent job maximizing top value (Grade A prospects Denis Grebeshkov and Jeff Tambellini, plus a potential third round pick) for unrestricted free agent Mark Parrish. Nevertheless, it's never easy to say goodbye to a class act like Parrish, a very good NHL player who always came off as the kid next door who treated everyone like a friend. For the next two months we'll turn on our Center Ice TV package for the late games and root for Mark. We'd also like the believe to door is always open on both sides because Parrish liked Long Island and the feeling was certainly mutual.


Seemed a bit odd to me that they would make that last statement...almost like it was part of an effort by the team to let him know that we are interested in bringing him back for next season.

If the Isles could've resigned him last week; he wouldn't have been traded. My thoughts are that he priced himself out of the Isles budget. It saves us money to resign Ricky.

hes probably too expensive for the islesand for what hes worth, some team is probably gkoing to overpay him at like 3.5 mill....but to say "there is no room on the team for him"? we're in 10th place, theres plenty of room

Agreed.The isles tried signing him to an extension before training camp and again before they dealt him.If they were comfortable with his salary demands,they'd have signed him.

That being said, I had a problem with him when he said in the papers that he would love to go to Minnesota. You just don't say that while your wearing another teams uniform. I don't care if your positioning yourself or not for a new contract. It was disrespectful to the fans and also his teammates. I also didn't care for a remark he made after the trade in the papers, "Im glad to be on a team on it's way up, not like the Islanders who are on their way down". It wasn't necessary.

Oh please, it isn't like we're in 10th place because he is now gone. If anything, we've been BETTER since he left. I'm not placing blame for this season on him, but it wasn't like he was leading us to a glorious season while he was with us.

I wouldn't be actively against it. But for now, I'd like to see how this team responds and closes out the season before I make any decisions one way or the other.

I agree it's time to move on. Parry was great for the organization for the past couple of years, but it's clear to me that Parrish just doesn't fit for what the Isles need now. Plus as it seems clear that other people agree with me, Parrish is a little too one-dimensional for what the Isles need. The Isles need to put their faith in the youth as it seems it's working for them.

right, but what i am trying to say is when someone says they dont know if there is room on our lines for another forward it sounds a little ridiculous given that we can obviously improve. My point is theres always room on the team if a good player comes around

I like Parrish, but to me he isn't what the team needs. He is a streaky scorer, and the team needs someone a little more consistent if they are going to get another forward. The young players are bound to go through dry spells, having someone that can create offense on their own on a consistent basis would relieve some of the pressure on them.

One thing though, it is a little early to be talking about Nilsson-Yashin-Bergenheim being set for next year. We all thought Asham-Yashin-Satan was going to be a great line after the first couple of weeks and look how that turned out.

How is that ridiculous? We are loaded on the wings and have 3 or 4 prospects that are ready to step up and get quality minutes at the NHL level(Nilsson, Bergenheim, Tambellini and possibly Colliton). Let's say that's 3/8 wingers right there. Now add in Hunter, Satan, Blake and there you have the wingers for the top-3 lines. Do you want to sign Parrish to be a 4th liner? Or do you want to have one of our young guys rot on the 4th line? I'd say there might not be enough room for Parrish... call me ridiculous.

If you read my post you'd see I included 3 of those 4, which I think is pretty accurate. Colliton I can see getting another year in the AHL, but I think Tambs has proven he is ready for the NHL.

I Love Him, But I Don't Want Him Back

Parrish is a slow skater, as is Lukowich and Kvasha. This team now has some speed, and this is making a big difference in performance. It would be a mistake to bring these guys back.

I would agree with that as a general statement, but clearly Parrish was not making this team any better. Not a knock against him, but it wasn't working. He put up good numbers but was not making the team any better. That's not to blame him for our struggles, just to point out that the team as it was before the deadline was not really working. I would not really want to go back to as it was before, I'd rather change the style of the team, not just its composition.

And, a guy like Bergie, will still bring something else to the table during those goal droughts. Parrish brought little else than that presence in front of the net. Not to discount the value of that, but he was slow and so not a great backchecker, was always in front of the net so not a great forechecker, and was not adept at setting his linemates up. I would rather focus on a faster, more agressive team like we seem to have now.

I don't think there is any real chance the Isles try to bring Mark back. Although he remains one of my favorite players in the league (because of his grit and work ethic), the Isles have got to address their need for 1) a big defensive center, 2) steady defensive dmen, before they do anything. And, this team already has several good young wingers (Nilsson, Bergie, Hunter).
