Kukla's Korner Hockey

While you can see the reasoning in what the Columbus Blue Jackets are doing with Nash—waiting until Parise signs so that all those teams that struck out on him come scrambling to the Jackets with a re-energized offer for Nash—it’s not that simple.
It might happen with some teams, but not all.
As pointed out last weekend, Bobby Ryan is another option and one that carries a better contract. Anaheim should get plenty of traction on him once Parise signs.
But even with Ryan, you have to give up good assets to get him.
There sits Parenteau on Sunday as an unrestricted free agent, available without having to give up any assets. Judging from the conversations I’ve had with a few teams over the past week, I think he’s a player that’s going to generate more interest than most people believe.
