Career: With just 21 games between the Sharks and Avalanche, Parker set a career low for penalty minutes.
Report: Parker was brought back to Colorado at the deadline to replace the unused muscle of Brad May...Fit that bill perfectly...As in, he didn't fight anyone either...Parker had 4 fights in 11 games with San Jose, none in 10 games with Colorado...Meanwhile, Rycroft and Finger had 3 fights between them since Parker was acquired...Not much else of his game is notable...Dished out some hits when he had the chance...Didn't embarrass himself on the ice, although he was given very limited ice time...Needs to figure out how to hold on to his stick.
Fast Fact: Parker had his one assist in his first game with Colorado this year, and a goal in his final game
2007-2007 Salary: $575,000
2007-2008 Status: UFA
Outlook: Colorado will need an enforcer to take some of the workload off of Ian Laperriere. Parker is a good clubhouse guy and reportedly asked for the trade back to the Avalanche. I don't know that that makes him a shoo-in to come back, but he should at least be on the list of potential tough guys.
