Is that a fact or a wish on your part Farhan??? The only rumors I have heard regarding Parise is that Minnesota or Detroit are on his wish list.
Complete wish on my part.
The point I was trying to make is that trading Lou for prospects and freeing up cap space is great, but it doesn't help us NOW.......during what is probably a 1 year window, maybe 2, to win a cup. If the Canucks are going to trade Lou for prospects while clearing up cap space, then my argument is that they'd better make sure that they take a run at Zack Parise........and make sure that Parise actually wants to play here.
No matter how we slice it or dice, this Canuck team needs significant help on offense in the post-season.
Very few teams are better at lighting up shitty teams than the Canucks but very few teams are more offensively inept when it comes to laying down the hammer on a team with elite shut down 'D' men.
RIP Creeper. You will be missed.
