I don't know. Couldn't tell you.

I just remembered he did tweet the essentials of it last night, the details will come tonight.

Basically we have been working on a deal with VIP tickets where we are going to write some stuff for them in exchange for them giving us tickets every month to kings games that we are then going to give away to readers. Good seats too.

So basically the announcement is lots of free kings tickets for the season!

I lol'd earlier because it really doesn't belong in this thread... And i was enjoying the guesses .

Thanks for all the Briggs comments. I laughed while at the same time found comfort knowing that there is some musical sanity around here.

Apparently Parise has agreed to a 1 year deal.

DL will be licking his chops on 7/1/12.

Per CBA, the Devils cannot sign Parise now to a deal beginning in 2012-13 until Jan. 1, 2012.
Parise is going to get a huge offer coming his way next July.

Not hardly.

If DD signs for no more than $7.5M, they have 16 guys signed with $16M in cap space (assuming cap stays at $64.3). With only 1 top six spot open.

Not necessarily, unless DD signs some ludicrous contract. We have Stoll and Penner coming off the books, and I'm not sure about you but I'd take Parise over Penner any day.

I was going to actually do a long writeup but **** it.

Here goes it.

Quick and Bernier need to be signed in 2 years. Quick will undoubtedly get a substantial raise. Mitchell has to be re-signed this offseason. You can't let him go. That would be an absolute failure on DL's resume. We don't know what Doughty's cap hit or term will be. Penner and Stoll are also UFAs after this year. Stoll I could see taking a hometown discount. His wife is rich. He can take a discount to stay home and win. On top of that, his wife is an actress. He's going to be in LA for a while (sorry Kurri). Penner could be let go to clear cap space if they want to make a push for Parise but not sure it will be enough.

Lets say all things stay the same (meaning we don't really sign any big UFAs or make any trades) in a year when he's a UFA and we let Penner walk. Then lets say all UFAs are brought back at the same price. And for your arguments, we sign Parise. Cap hit of $5.5 is the lowest I could see him making anywhere (and that'd be lucky to get). This would be our team.


FORWARDS
Anze Kopitar ($6.800m) / Mike Richards ($5.750m) / Simon Gagne ($3.500m)
Justin Williams ($3.650m) / Jarret Stoll ($3.600m) / Scott Parse ($0.900m)
Dustin Brown ($3.175m) / Brad Richardson ($1.175m) / Trevor Lewis ($0.725m)
Kyle Clifford ($0.870m) / Colin Fraser ($0.825m) / Zach Parise ($5.500m)
Kevin Westgarth ($0.525m)

DEFENSEMEN
Jack Johnson ($4.357m) / Willie Mitchell ($3.500m)
Rob Scuderi ($3.400m) / Matt Greene ($2.950m)
Alec Martinez ($0.737m) / Drew Doughty ($6.500m)
Davis Drewiske ($0.616m)

GOALTENDERS
Jonathan Quick ($1.800m) / Jonathan Bernier ($1.250m)


CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $64,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $62,106,310; BONUSES: $135,000
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $2,193,690

That gives us $2M in cap space next year. Okay, right?

The following season we have to then re-sign Quick and Bernier. Quick will pretty much guaranteed want $4M. Clifford is an RFA and will need a raise and its far too early to even speculate what he will make. At that point Voynov is an RFA as well as Lokti. If Voynov makes the NHL this year, he will need a raise too.

So essentially it would break down to clearing Scuds $3.4 but Quick and Clifford guaranteed a raise of some sort. Then we have the uncertainty of the young guys playing at the NHL and doing it well and wanting raises too. THEN you also have to bring back one Gagne, get another top 6 LWer, or hope to god one develops by then.

The way I see it, Parise is a pipe dream and nothing more. I didn't even mention the uncertainty in the new CBA and no guarantees the cap goes up.

I would love to have Parise on this team. He is an amazing talent. Elite Player and i can't think of any other player in the NHL who would look good on Kopitars wing.


Get that video ready Deano !....i think they will go harder for Zach than they did for B.Richards. Only thing i'm thinking about is if Penner really is putting that much effort into becoming a top player on this team and is showing Dean he wants to be here and wants to be the best he can be do we let him go ?

Parise and Penner if he performs this year would be great to have on this team. Than there's Gagne. Next off-season should be atleast a little more interesting than this years that is if Zach reaches free agency.
