He is a UFA at end of season.
Just to add,
Arnott last year as a pending UFA who had 24 points at the time of the trade got a second and a darn good player in Steckel.
Chris Campoli, an average DMan, who was a UFA got a second and a decent prospect in Ryan Potulny.
Our very own Ian White reeled in a 2nd as a pending UFA.
Kaberle as a soon to be UFA got a 1st, 2nd, and a damn good prospect in Joe Colborne.
Parise is a much better player than all these guys, probably even combined, and you think because he is a pending UFA he won't cost a lot? It'll take at least a 1st, 2nd to start, then a top level prospect.
