Amen, and you don't bring back ryder and call up caron if Parise comes in. This would be unbelievable if the bruins could get Parise here via a trade, mainly using picks. We cant sign him as an RFA since we don't have our own second round pick next year, and he will no doubt get the money that would require a #1 and atleast #2 next year for rfa compensation.
I couldn't think of a better pickup for next season. Even if Philly had Ilya, Pit gets healthy, Montreal spends money and is healthy etc. If we had Parise in this group of forwards, plus seguin gets alot better, we not have the forward group/scoring and PP to match the philly's and pits. On the other hand, they still couldnt match our tending, stout defense, and ability to wear teams out from our rugged power forwards and physicality on D.
Parise is a championship player, plays extremely tough, gets to the dirty areas, and has elite finishing skills. Some guys have the first things, few have the last (kovalchuck etc), and the list with all 3 starts with guys like crosby, toews, kesler, getzlaf. Parise would add the missing dimension on a cup team, how scary would we be then!
Do you add Tuukka in a deal like this? It would most likely take the #9 pick too.
