He is digging his hole with Devils fans deeper with each interview.

But, at the same time, making himself extremely popular with the minnie fan base, I imagine.


actually Bobby Ryan is....+ he was a flyers fan

Cherry Hill boy, right across the river, no chance for him from the get-go.


Now I understand burning your Devils Parise jersey but today I witnessed someone burning their USA Parise jersey....really?

wow. wrong.

I have to say, Parise looks pretty damn good in a Wild jersey.


Wow....if this was HF you would get a warning for posting this, and lose your avatar for at least 60 days !!!

RIP Zach Parise signing thread.

You weren't nearly as epic as Kovy's thread, and your conclusion was much more disappointing.

I keep thinking... this has got to be really insulting if you were one of his Devils teammates who thought you were his friend.

That's the thing that kind of irks me. I said I don't hate Zach for leaving and I still have respect for him, but that boggles me. He goes all the way to Minnesota just to play with this one guy who he's now BFF with (he said he would've returned to Jersey had Suter signed somewhere else :blink: ) and somehow Suter is now more of his friend than all the players on the Devils he's played with for years.

The most perfect moment of this whole fiasco for me was Zach on NHL live the other day talking about his decision to go to Minny, he goes something like, "NJ is a great organization, Lou taught me that there's a right and wrong way to do things..."

Looks like he decided to do things the wrong way

Over/under 1 full season before they strip the "C" from Koivu and give it to one of the good 'ole midwestern boys?

Press Conference today--very telling:

Press: "Was there any hesitance at all in signing a 13 year contract? Considering basically that is half of your lifetime..."

Parise: (chuckling) "I didn't hesitate...NO...not at all...umm I...no not at all...for me especially, I knew I wanted to play at home, I knew I wanted to finish my careeer at home, so from my standpoint there wasn't any (hesitance) at all"



***AGAIN, kid knew it alllllllllllllll along. Fine to go home, not fine to fvck with Devils fans' heads.

This may sound harsh but I think we need to stop giving athletes their due. I think they all fit in the spectrum as crappy people one way or the other. It may vary in degrees on each person but they're athletes, not role models

There was so much wrong with that press conference. Leipold said, "I have to pinch myself..."
