"Calgary Flames: This happened Friday afternoon, but it's the best thing that's happened to the Flames in a while: Ales Kotalik(notes) got shipped to the AHL because he is really quite terrible. " I saw that on What We Learned on the Yahoo NHL blog. My first thought was "Hahahaha so glad we got rid of him!"
I also noticed that Zach Parise might be going to get traded, as the Devils are trying to free up cap space. What would you guys think if that rumour were true? I think he would be a great addition. but who would we need to trade? and who would we have to trade? His salary last year was $5,000,000, his cap hit was $3,125,000.
"New Jersey Devils: Here's some absolute garbage from Bruce Garrioch -0 The Devs might trade Zach Parise because of cap constraints. Because the one guy you wanna get rid of at a time like this is the 26-year-old one who puts up like 85 or 90 points a year and plays defense like a checking-line center."~What We Learned, Yahoo! Sports NHL
Seeing as the Devils may be trying to get rid of him, I would like to see Parise in the Blue & Gold. Trading might be hard, as Buffalo's "tradeables" have similar salaries for less skill. Unless we wanted to trade someone good (especially Myers, with the low salary) I doubt we could acquire Parise.
Who do you think we could trade? Who do you think the Devils would take? Would it be worth it? Would you want Parise? What number would he end up with?
Also, the two worst goalscorers in the league are Todd Marchant from Anaheim and Mike Lundin of Tampa, each with 51 games, 0 goals.
