With all the speculation about Getzlaf and Ryan earlier in the year, I started thinking about other Ducks, notably Parros.The Sabres are certainly in need of some grit. While Parros doesn't score much, the upside is that the Sabres would have one of the truly tough heavyweights in the league, someone who could fight and win against anyone, anywhere. There's a lot to be said for that factor. Parros is also cheaper than Cody McCormick (although he isn't a Center) and he is a free agent after this season. He is also a little older than most of the Sabres (32) and has won a Cup, so he could provide some of the veteran leadership the team needs.
On the negative side, he is 32 and doesn't play Center. Cody also has another year left on his deal (for an absurd 1,250,000) so it is unlikely we could trade him. He'd more than likely have to be buried in the AHL I presume. Anyway, thoughts?
