from Sam Carchidi of Broad Street Bull, For the Flyers, the bad news coming out of Pittsburgh on Thursday was that superstar Sidney Crosby had signed a 12-year, $104.4 million extension, a cap hit of $8.7 million _ the same as this season. It’s bad news because Crosby, arguably the NHL’s best player when healthy, probably could have gotten a shorter deal….and more money per season. By stretching out the contract, the Penguins have plenty of cap space for some moves, and it appears they will not be outbid for the best free agent on the free-agent market, Devils left winger Zach Parise. You know, the guy the Flyers (and many others) covet. Crosby and Parise have been close friends for several years. Crosby even shared a suite with Parise’s family at the Stanley Cup Finals. If you connect the dots, it seems a good bet that they will be on the same line together next season. continued

What If Nashville Signed Suter And Parise?

from Jeremy K Gover of Section 303, The prizes of this free agency class are defenseman Ryan Suter and forward Zach Parise. Some think it will take roughly $9 million to sign each player. Using that number, let’s take the best case scenario and say the Preds sign both (again, purely as an example). That’s a whopping $18 million tied up in just those two players. But guess who’s...

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, The Wild can’t offer Zach Parise the chance to play alongside Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin the way the Pittsburgh Penguins can. It can’t offer Zach Parise a rich history of winning the way the Detroit Red Wings can.

WCHA well represented in NHL free agency

s/t to Brad Schlossman of the Grand Forks Herald... According to the Globe and Mail four out of the top 10 free agents are former players from the WCHA. That's pretty impressive in my opinion.
