Nashville Predators

Parrish drawing interest from Canucks and Predators

From Michael Russo of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

He’s got his charity celebrity auction/dinner/concert this weekend and should be closing in on a deal with some team eventually. I talked to a reporter from the Team 1040 in Vancouver today, and agent John Vollan confirmed to him that the Canucks have shown interest.

Parrish just has to stay patient. Remember, two of the teams interested in him have other things pending and he’s Plan B. In other words, if Mats Sundin turns down Vancouver’s reported $10 million-a-year offer or simply retires, Parrish will get an offer. If Radulov indeed does not return to the Predators, Parrish will likely receive an offer from Craig Leipold’s old team.

Parrish really does make sense for both clubs.  However, I still think Radulov will have to honor the one remaining year on his NHL contract and I just don’t see Sundin signing in Vancouver. So, I’d hazard to guess that Parrish will end up on the West Coast sporting a Canucks jersey.
