Ok, say 7, who would you rather pay $1.5 M for Parise or 1.5M less to have krejci? I would personally rather move seguin to the middle to play with Parise, slide horton down a line to start next year to ease him back in and then find out who plays with seguin/parise for the stretch run as season wears on.
I guess put it this way, I would rather have Parise than Krejci and Paille (this isnt a bash krejci type post either, I'm more pointing to the fact that bergy and seguin will be the 1st and 2nd centers on this team for atleast the next 5 yrs).
The way I look at it, if you can trot out a 1st line with scoring punch and grit like that followed by bergy and his line w Z and Seids against the other teams top units, and be able to roll out a PP with that first line, we won't need to hope for a historic once in a lifetime goaltender performance to win the cup again.
I'm not even sure we need to dump krejci to get Parise either, just moving on from TT would probably do the trick (plus savvy's $).
I would rather take TT, Savvy, and Krejci's money (14.5M or so) and trade it for Suter and Parise straight up. Obviously, that is not reality given terms etc, just saying a one year swap of those cap dollars we would be better served with tuukka suter parise. Let's face, you can only play 1 goalie, so pick who you want to ride. I bet St. Louis wishes they could cash in Halak's cap hit for a scorer right now!
Wow, my longest post ever, sorry for the bible recreation, I think I passed out for a minute there.
