08:34 AM ET 06.13 | From foe to friend? Up next for the Los Angeles Kings: First, a parade. Then, the pursuit of free agent Zach Parise come July 1. These Kings have no intention of winning just one Stanley Cup. They want more. And they are not in any kind of salary cap conundrum, the way past winners have found themselves. They won't have to dish off quality players -- or any players really -- the way the Chicago Blackhawks did after winning two years ago. And while they won't say so because they can't legally say so, the captain of the New Jersey Devils is No. 1 on their off-season shopping list. They want Parise, as do many teams, and they want him badly. ... They love the way he competes. They love his skill level and natural leadership.

It's the Sun being the Sun and like your mother used to say, you can't look at it for to long or you will hurt your eyes

Not if you confine your "reading" to Page 3 (OK I am showing my age again)

And yes, a really really dumb article. You can replace "KIngs" with any one of the other 29 teams.

If he goes to LA I hope we don't see a sex tape and a reality series with Nicole Richie.

I didn't realize that his Irkedness moonlights as a sports editor for the Sun.

adding Parise to that team would be deadly. But i don't see it happening. Parise isn't Hossa.

I am really curious what the Kings do with Pancake ?? Is the playoff and Sutter season version the real deal going forward ? The guy was complacent at best without a Cup on his resume. Now.......? Big gamble

Still, a Parise-Wild or a Parise-Kings combo beats a Habs-Suban combo any day of the week!
