Ramifications of the Zach Parise-Ryan Suter Signings


There are varying levels of disappointment among Penguins' fans after losing out on Zach Parise, but there's always Good News: management is actively-pursuing a scoring winger to play with Sid, and if you've been following the Parise situation, you know exactly what kind of figures ($8 Million per-season) the team was willing to lavish on him.

With that in mind, it's time to re-examine exactly who the Penguins can graft onto their roster. Whereas three months ago it was laughable Xbox GM-ing to put Rick Nash, Bobby Ryan, or Jarome Iginla on the Penguins, as it stands today those three are all realistic additions for the team, if Ray Shero is willing to part with a few key assets.

The fallout of failing to land Parise is that the Penguins must aggressively pursue players like Nash and Ryan, lest they end up on an Atlantic Division rival. Believe me, both Philadelphia and New Jersey are hot for Bobby Ryan, and Philly was hard after Nash prior to the Van Riemsdyk-Schenn deal. Because Suter and Parise landed on one team, there is going to be a mad trade-scramble as teams seek to shore up their deficiencies.

As always, feedback is appreciated.
