Discussion on potential free agent targets for Carolina.

http://espn.go.com/n...ew-york-rangers

Asked three separate times whether he'd consider playing for the Rangers, Parise was unwavering in his responses.

"No."

Parise seems pretty content on staying with NJ, but we will see when he starts getting $$ tossed in his face.

I'd love to win the Ryan Suter sweepstakes too.

Jordan Staal has been in Raleigh quite a bit this offseason.

I'd love to get Jordan Staal here. If we could get Staal and Parise or Suter, we'd have a hell of a shot this season.

Trade for our first and and third along with Harrison and Joslin to Pitt for Staal then throw all of our money at Parise and Suter. Then win the Cup lol.

The New York Rangers, stocked with young, promising forwards, still appear to be the most likely fit for Nash, and their desire might have been heightened during the Stanley Cup playoffs. The Rangers' 2.15 goals per game in the playoffs was the second-lowest figure of any club to advance past the first round.

Also known to have considerable interest are San Jose, Philadelphia, Toronto and Carolina, apparently a late entry, sources said.

With draft close at hand, asked GM Jim Rutherford again today about likelihood of Canes trading their first-round pick.

Chip Alexander@ice_chip

Rutherford: "That's hard to say. We've done a lot of work in trying to get a real good forward to play with Eric (Staal). ..."

Chip Alexander@ice_chip

Rutherford: "I'd prefer not to (trade the pick). But if the right player was available and the right deal, we would do it."

Chip Alexander@ice_chip

Rutherford said he expects NHL trades next week. "Whether we'll get in on those early trades or not, we're trying to."

The conjecture is that Staal is (a) seeking the kind of top-six ice time he cannot get as a third center behind Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin; and (B) wants to play alongside his brother Eric in Carolina.

Reports also saying that if the Rangers can't get Nash, they may go after Staal.

Not a huge fan of getting rid of Sutter. Hopefully this isn't our only splash.

I'd love to see one more big player come in and make us a contender.

Other clubs also interested in Nash include Ottawa and Carolina. The Senators want to stay in the mix even though their best hook is now gone. With the Jackets drafting two goalies Saturday, plus trading for Sergei Bobrovsky on Friday, I doubt the Jackets would have interest in either Robin Lehner or Ben Bishop at this point. Still, the Senators can stay in by changing their possible offer. It might surprise some that the Hurricanes are in the mix, especially after picking up Jordan Staal Friday. But a source confirmed that Carolina is intent on staying in the race for Nash.

While you can expect Nash to be dealt sometime in July, it’s harder to tell with Luongo.

Glad to see we are still interested in going after him. That would be a good get.

I'd rather break the bank going after parise than trade for Nash/Ryan at this point. Who would we have to lose to get Nash?? Ruutu, Faulk or Murphy and another d prospect, and a top forward prospect, Rask, Tlusty, or newly acquired Welsh. Price for Nash is just too damn steep. We would be mortgaging our future. We now have prospects, don't want us to clean house...

I think it is all but decided that Parise will not be coming to Carolina.

Columbus isn't going to get what they think they are going to get for Nash. They will either have to significantly lower their asking price, or they will be going into next season with and unhappy Nash.

It honestly makes more sense to me for us to deal some prospects for Bobby Ryan. We have some good, young players in place right now, and Ryan has several good years left in him.

Hearing from multiple sources that the Penguins are very serious about attempting to sign Zach Parise in July.

Josh Yohe@JoshYohe_Trib

Pens are looking to trade Paul Martin. Money saved in that deal may give them shot at Parise. Multiple sources believe this is their plan

Pittsburgh with Parise would be an intense offense.
