Additionally, I think Zajac can play the game he plays longer than Parise will be able to. Parise will find it harder to get the dirty goals as he gets beat up. Unless he's a Dino Ciccarelli type who did it forever...
I think the Devils already got Zach's best, and at incredible cost effect. I don't think he's going to suck for the Wild, but they won't get nearly the value for him that the Devils did.
The Devils might have already gotten Zajac's best too, but at least this contract is a lot less outrageous than Zach's, and Zajac probably has a better chance at being solid for more of his deal, then Zach will for his. If Zajac is struggling in Year 6, that's only two more seasons the Devils are on the hook for. If Zach is in the same boat, that's 7 more seasons for the Wild.
THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime? - Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.
Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.
It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
