Optimists View of Parise Situation

I think that, despite the doom and gloom that's been posted on here recently, everyone knows that Parise will only truly leave NJ if he wants to leave NJ. I'm confident that we have more than enough resources to accommodate him. And in this post, I'll do a (minimal) amount of work to prove it.

Obviously we've heard about the financial troubles of the Devils - I'm not able to address those. I'm also not able to address what we're actually paying our players today (i.e. - Kovy's $12mm) - But from a cap perspective, using CapGeek.com, I can see that we will have roughly 24,090,000 in cap space to sign parise next year.



Of that cap space, we have a few players we'll need to sign:

Parise, Brodeur, Taormina, Fayne



A few players it would be nice to sign:

Hedberg, Sykora, Ponikarovsky, Steve Bernier, Ryan Carter



And a few players we should not sign:

Salvador, Foster, Cam Janssen, Brad Mills



So - giving conservative estimates of the minimal cap hit for players we should sign:

Brodeur - $1.5mm
Taormina - $900 K
Fayne - $2.5 mm



That would leave us with a little under $20 million in cap space to potentially throw at Parise. Whatever is left over we can use to fill in the gaps in our line up. The Devils organization has a fantastic mix of cheap veteran talent and cheap up-and-coming talent that should do the job nicely. I hope that this has helped to brighten your day as i has mine.
