‏Zach Parise has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Wild

Hahah! Seriously, what he did was the opposite of loyal. I'd have a lot more respect if he didn't go on and on about wanting to be a Devil and wanting to win. He could have just said "looking forward to the FA process" or something along those lines. But to find out he was waiting on his bestie to sign and had them take matching deals points to the fact we were nothing but second choice (if not third or fourth) for him. It all sounds a little immature to me. I don't understand how you can get so close to hoisting a cup as a CAPTAIN of a team and spew BS about wanting to win and then do this. Either ZP is as phony as they come or he's delusional/so full of himself he thinks he&Suter automatically equals cup run for the Wild

Right on. As I said earlier- if you wanna leave, fine. When asked about your plans, say 'no comment', or speak in generalities like everyone else does in these situations. He took it over the top, and flat-out lied to everyone. I wonder how his teammates feel.

And I mean really, the guys that went FA this offseason wanted more YEARS here, not money. Marty wanted two years, Moose wanted two years, Sal wanted three. Marty was trying to get Zach to come back and Sal was even talking to him before he himself signed to come back. Our fourth liners all re-signed before FA on two-year deals, and at least a couple of them could have gotten more money later on. Freaking Andy Greene got offers even higher than the one we were killing the Devils for giving him last year and he took less to stay without a NTC. It's gotta be killing these guys the captain bailed on them like this.

Can we all agree that they should take a run at Semin now? At least he's proven he can be effective against the Rangers, unlike Parise seems to ever be.

Please no. He's been criticized for laziness and choking. I'd rather take the current roster and some solid wingers than overpay for Semin.

Definition of loyalty = conspiring an exit strategy with a player on another team while you're still employed and treated handsomely by your current team.

And THIS is why I hate Zach Parise now. Not because he left. Because of THIS. It's a scummy, low-brow move, and I hope the hockey gods keep it in mind moving forward.

That's the problem, there aren't any solid wingers left other than Semin or the guys you'd have to give up an arm and a leg to trade for unless you want to hope Doan shakes loose and then overpay for him. It was a thin crop of wingers this year.

Yeah, he has no idea. I want him to cry after he leaves Newark that night. It's personal the way he did this.

Suter will be there to protect him.

May be crazy to say this, but this is also why I think Scott Gomez is more respectful than Zach after this. No one was under the impression Gomez was going to stay. He took the money and ran across the river 2 seconds after FA began. We all knew he was going to walk. We came within a few games of a Cup and Zach bails to a lesser team in terms of roster talent and some more money up front. Hope Parise chokes on Suter's nuts.

I really hope that if there is a lockout and they have do redo the schedule that we still get to play the Wild at home. I hope people make up clever signs to show him during warmups.

I hate Gomez, but at least he didn't have any delusions about what he was doing. Parise artfully lied to every Devils fan for a full year, along with staging a stellar performance the last few days of playing the stressed out, conflicted victim, all the while trying to convince Suter to team up with him. Bravo Zach, that sh!t should win an Oscar. Maybe Suter can slide the garter up Zach's leg at the wedding in a couple weeks. They'd both love that.

Oh I hate Gomez too, but at least he didnt try to mask his intentions. He gave us the finger all year and then walked as expected.

Remember when Langs complained and cried that we booed him during the shootout? Parises first game back is gonna pale in comparison to that. I want to win 9-0 that night.

I would love a photoshopped sign of Zach being led on a leash by Suter and his dad. Put that sh!t right up on the glass during warmups lol.

I'm not gonna lie- I hope someone runs him that night. Right through the boards. He can leave on a stretcher for all I care.

I'm sure everyone wants to. I can't imagine how some of the team feel right now. I'm sure many of them are being much more levelheaded than us, but this has got to sting on quite a few levels. On that same hand, I'm sure someone like Henrique is looking at this as a huge opportunity to become an even better player. He's going to have the pressure of all the puck bunnies now too.

Hope they use it as motivation and just crush fvckers all year.

Me again to give another perspective. I got no issues with any jokes about Parise and Suter, but once again I think the quotes are being taken way out of hand. What is wrong with friends talking about playing with each other? You don't think Elias and Sykora ever texted or talked about possibly playing with Zidlicky, or Kovalchuk with many of his Russian buddies, or the Staal brothers, etc. That's something all good friends talk about. Name a player with a good friend, and they have had a conversation playing together, especially during their UFA year.

But don't turn this into they were planning all year to play together or go to Minnesota together. And I doubt Zach was thinking that it was really a possibility, and maybe if it was, why not in New Jersey? If this was as planned as many want to believe, they'd both be in Minny, July 1st, 2012, at 12:30PM.

Zach's not a bad guy, no matter how much you want to make him out to be. Zach's probably not gay, no matter how much you think he is. Zach's not a brainless idiot who can't make decisions for him, no matter how many people think he is. Zach's not a bad player, no matter how many want to say he is. Zach did have a big part in the 2012 playoff run, no matter how people say he didn't. But, Parise is certainly overpaid right now, and am happy the Devils didn't sign him to that kind of money.

I'll do you one better. I hope Parise and Sutter are hurt when the Olympics roll around so I don't have to root for either of them.

Damn dude, did you work for Pravda in the Soviet Union?

You seriously believe that Parise and Suter weren't trying to hook up on the same team throughout the season?

The examples you use do not make sense because those players never had the ability to do what they wanted to do. Parise and Suter did what they planned to do.

because from what's being said out there, Suter never wanted to come to the east. Suter wanted to go to Detroit but they didn't want to pay Parise as much so then Parise talked Minnesota into getting Suter too. Pleaseeee can we have the same contracts? I think Parise bullsh!ted us all year long and its way more obvious now.
