I mean , if he was scoring like Stamkos, or a player like Crosby, who makes those he plays with better...then, maybe. But he is not that type of player!!! Forget about it. The money can be better spent elsewhere. I would much prefer to spend that kind of coin on someone like Parise!
Nash = Parise + toughness + durability.
I'd say Parise lands a similar contract as a UFA.
What are the odds of Parise choosing Canucks?
Having said that, each would be likely to score at a 40-goal pace in Vancouver.
I'd take Nash over Parise every day of the week
... and twice on Sunday.
