Daniel

‏Zach Parise has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Wild

2,874 posts in this topic

Trying to rationalize and prepare myself for today.

Parise is such a like-able guy, hard worker, incredibly marketable (Devils biggest weakness), that being said I don't think his game will be as effective in his early 30's and up.

I think Parise is worth 12years 70 Million. I'd love if the devils could get him for that.

I think He'll get offered 90-105million, which he is totally not worth... but who can blame him for taking it.

I don't think he goes to Philly. That team seems to be blown up and surrounded by drama most of the time.

If i were him my top 2 (besides NJ) would be Detroit and Pittsburgh. Minnesota never seems to consistently have their sh!t together.

If he wasn't such a like able guy personally this would be much easier.

If Zach goes to Minnesota, I don't want to hear anything about him being a "winner" or a "champion." That would be the equivalent of LeBron having signed with the Golden State Warriors.

Spoke to Martin Brodeur. He said conversations he's had with Zach Parise were encouraging that captain might stay

- Rich Chere

Also...

Brodeur said it was acknowledged in his talks with Lou Lamoriello that Devils are in a tough financial situation. But Brodeur said because the players were never put in position to worry about team finances last season, he trusts Devils will be okay.

Brodeur on ZP: "I’m sure he’ll make the right decision for him and his family. He’s getting married and all that, so it’s a big summer for him..but I think the Devils went to the forefront with him and I’m pretty positive that he’ll come back to us, but we’ll see.”

Not to mention they dumped their high paid veteran stars before last year. There was a quote a while back from Parise about settling down in a place he wants to raise a family. The threat of instability would be enough to keep me away from philly, especially when he can go pretty much anywhere he wants.

I think it's between us and Pitt. The scary thing is, Pitt is likely throwing trucks of money at him and the allure of playing on a wing with Sid for years to come....

I just want it to be over already!

we may have a budget for the season but we have pretty much all our roster signed except Zach, Sykora and Salvadore(Sykki and Salvadore are a good luxury to have but we dont NEED them either)... and 19m of cap space... its almost impossible to spend to the cap now anyway lol

and this is the team who were 2 games away from winning the cup so...

Don't you guys have smart phones?

I have twitter, espn, and bleacher report sending me updates anytime a Devil is mentioned in anything credible. Also, checking this forum and hfboards every 10 minutes.

Gotta love technology.

Dumb Question. If the team really did go "broke", the players would get paid no matter what right?

Balls. Saw the same thing from Russo (the Wild's beat reporter)

Look away #Devils fans... Sounds like Zach Parise has cut his list down to the #Penguins and #Wild. #PariseWatch

I don't want to be "that guy", but if Parise doesn't re-sign I really will root for him to fail. It seems like the Devils made several fair offers and essentially gave him the keys to the team and he's gonna spit in our faces. fvck him
