P. A. Parenteau has agreed to a four-year/$16 million deal with the Colorado Avalanche.

Parenteau had 18 goals and 67 points in 80 games in 2011-12. There's some that fear that he'll regress without John Tavares, but we think he'll easily surpass the 50-point mark if he stays healthy. Parenteau should get plenty of playing time with the man advantage and on one of the Avalanche's top two lines.
