Man, what happened to your team? This a head to head league?
Honestly, I'd probably do it based on the fact that your goaltending does indeed suck ass. Parise is a good young winger. He's not going to make up for losing Zetterberg, but he's definitely not going to hurt your team. Biron isn't that good of a goalie. If it weren't for the fact that Nittymaki is behind him, he probably wouldn't really be a starter.
So, yeah, I'd make the deal. Then I'd dump Raycroft and Conklin. And I'd consider dumping Nittymaki and see if maybe Jason LaBarbera or Mike Smith are available. Just another starter. But just by dumping Nittymaki and Raycroft, you've freed up some space. You could pick up a prospect like Montoya, Bernier, Crawford or Halak if you wanted. Or you could grab two other prospects or maybe a Fabian Brunnstrom.
What's the rest of your roster look like?
This is the team I inherited although I drafted alot of them too.
I have not been offered this trade, just something I am considering. Goaltending is huge in this league.

Well, in that case you might have to throw a little more the other guy's way. I'd start by just tacking Nittymaki on the end so that the guy feels secure in the fact that you're not going to end up screwing him over if Biron falters. If he doesn't like that, you know where to go from there, just start asking what he's interested in and add a few more pieces to the puzzle.
I'd certainly go for this as the basis for a trade though. If you could have Fleury and Price as your two goaltenders for a keeper league.... Well, that's almost as good as a wet dream.
