Will Parise Really Stay In NJ?

113 posts in this topic

I want Parise here. But looking at how things have gone and what people in the business are saying I am not optimistic that he will be signed by the Devils. Every team wants him. Lots of money available. The Devils financial mess will cause his father to say get out while you can. However I expect a season long lockout in 2012/2013 year. The new CBA contract for 2013/2014 and the next 5 years may make him ineligible for UFA in the new CBA year 2012/2013. Lou is hoping that this happens.

Honestly I want the best for Parise I think he has earned my respect and I support him regardless of where he goes even if it hurts the Devils, being an old man I can say he is a very nice kid.

Be the stupidest thing ever if the Devils didn't resign him. Why do I feel like he'd go to the fvcking Rangers.

I hate to say it but since Travis went down, Zach has become less consitant, or is it the lack of playing with a year off either way you look at it. He needs to pick it up or in my opinion he is trade bait come the deadline.

I had the same injury Zach had. Trust me no matter how much treatment you recieve after the surgery it takes about 2 years in my opinion to fully recover from a torn meniscus. I don't think he's 100% all around.

do you guys think Lou would go as far as resigning Langenbrunner (if available) to help convincing Zach to stay ?

Not a single one of us has any idea if he's staying or going. It's gonna be stressful one way or the other. The whole bankrutpcy thing isn't exactly appealing.

I personally think he stays, gets as close to a Kovy deal as we can give him, and remains a Devil for a long time to come.

The bottom line is we really don't have to wait much longer to get the answer to this. After Parise signed the 1 year deal this past summer, both sides said they'd negotiate quietly outside of the media and have an agreement that could be signed 1/1/12. Zach has said repeatily that he wants to stay here in multiple media outlets. Forget all the crap you hear on VS. and anywhere else in the media, if he's a man of his word and the Devils want him like they say they do then he'll be a Devil. I think it's good news we've heard nothing on the topic from Parise or the Devils since they agreed to deal with this silently!

If nothing is signed or announced a week after 1/1/12, expect Zach to be traded or just lost to FA on 7/1/12!

Dude, EVERY person says they want to stay. We'll see what happens but him saying that doesn't mean sh!t to me because he's never been a FA before. When Elias said he wanted to stay, it actually meant something.

Only because he backed it up by actually signing.

Maybe, but he also said afterwards that he almost signed with the Rangers until Lou offered the no-movement clause.

Anything Parise says literally means absolutely nothing because he's never been in this situation.
