Stars to sign Mark Parrish

The Stars have agreed to a one-year, $500K contract with Mark Parrish of the Minnesota Wild.

From the Dallas Morning New Blog:

Parrish is a right-handed right wing, which the team needs, and a natural shooter, which the team needs. He would fit on a line with either Brad Richards or Mike Modano.

Parrish is 31, and was bought out by the Minnesota Wild op July 29. The reason was because the Wild wanted to open up cap space after signing Parrish to a five-year deal at $2.65 million per year in 2006.

On the neagative side, they laid out $5.5 million to make him go away. On the positive side, the Stars are getting a proven NHL player at a significantly low cost.
