Parise will ask for a $12 million signing bonus immediately to protect him from a possible labor stoppage, as well as another $12 million bonus on July 1, 2013
with kovi's salery jumping to 11 mill i cant see us competing
I don't see Kovy's salary as the issue. According to Capgeek, we have $42 million in real salary next year for 17 players.
I believe the reports that Parise is looking for a $12 million bonus. That's at least $20 million you have to pay him in one year, if you include whatever his salary will be.
That's the hold up.
