Parrish to Boston (br2)

From the Ottawa Sun's Bruce Garrioch (Spectors),

The Minnesota Wild are trying to shop LW Mark Parrish, who's been relegated to the club's fourth line. His five-year, $2.7 million per season salary would make him a tough sell. The Wild could also shop RW Pascal Dupuis. Garrioch reports "Phoenix, Boston, Pittsburgh, Montreal and Chicago have all called GM Doug Risebrough to check on his availability."

Matt's Take: At 2.7 million, Parrish is a bargain. Even though he has struggled this season, he is a proven 20 goal scorer. Parrish plays LW, and I have always been a fan of him. His style of play just doesn't click with the Wild's west coast system of play. Parrish is a guy the Bruins had interest this offseason but he decided to go home and play for Minnesota. At 2.7, he is affordable and can fit under the cap. 5 years is the only thing I am a little shakey on, but then again, at 2.7, who plays better for 5 years. Eventually prospects making 850,000 or less with command more, and for 2.7 for 5 seasons seems resonable to me. I am wondering what Minnesota wants in return.

I would like to see the team to make a major move to stabilise the defensive squad. A part his tussle with Tucker, Mara has been a bust and he's useless on the PK/PP. PC could package him with another player to something more substential. Also, It could be a good idea to see what are our options in Providence. There's guy there who can help us and fill the spot of unproductive players...
