Despite the fact that Parise has said that he wants to test the open market if he doesn’t get re-signed by the Devils, the team has remained adamant that they will not trade him at all.

Unless the Devils want to watch their best player walk for nothing, GM Lou Lamoriello needs to reassess the situation and get a star in return for the star he can’t retain. That’s where Nash comes in.


If Parise wants big money, the Nash trade and the lack of big names would allow the Jackets to pay Parise as much as any team in the NHL.

If winning the Stanley Cup right now can take a backseat to making an enormous amount of money, staying in Columbus might not be the worst-case scenario for Parise.

While the deal is still off-the-wall, there is a chance that something this big could go down this season. Let’s see if teams get desperate enough to pull the trigger.

Makes no sense for the jackets to take on a rental let alone trading their superstar for a rental

Perhaps Carter plus their first rounder (could be 1st overall) would be more realistic.

1st Overall & Carter?

I'd probably bite. Still think that's a ridiculous overpayment for a rental though, on CB's part

Especially because Zach has said he wants to be on a winning team, and I'm sure he looks at the standings :giggle:

I'm guessing that like with Kovy and Atlanta, Lou will try to negotiate Zach an extension (even if they agree no keep it hush hush until the end of the season), and only trade him if it looks like Lou won't be able to get a reasonable deal either then or over the summer..

So if Zach goes in a trade, I think we'll know that he wouldn't have resigned in the summer

Parise would never re-sign in Columbus. Plus it would be incredibly stupid to send Nash here for a rental.

STOP!!

This is the most idiotic of rumors. Just ask yourself why such a deal makes any sense for Columbus. It doesn't. Story over.

Simply put, that Bleacher Report is just plain idiotic. The trade makes zero sense from virtually any perspective.

Of course it's ridiculous but it's great psy ops. I wouldn't be surprised if someone in the organization floated this. Parise doesn't have an NTC so he knows he's vulnerable and this might give him more incentive to strike a mid-season deal.

How is he vulnerable? He's a free agent at the end of the season. It's not like us trading him there would trap him there. He would be there for 25 games then go where he wants in the off season.



Plus Columbus would never do this without him signing an extension as part of the deal, and he said he wants to win, so he would never sign an extension there.

You're completely missing the point of my post. Parise doesn't have an NTC. My pontification was based on the idea that Parise knows he could be traded anywhere by deadline day.

Parise would only have to stay there a few months before he could leave. No real pressure on Parise.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.
