I think we should change it up a little. If it was hot lady ninjas in the Kovy thread, it should be hot lady something else in the Parise thread. Just my $0.02.


Well then the obvious answer is sexy pirates.

But that will all come in due time.

oh by the way, since this is what this thread is for, a rumor that i heard which i will lend credence to (i wouldn't post stuff i don't believe) is that parise was offered 7/49 at the trade deadline this year. he was prepared to accept it but his agents essentially would not let him. their argument was that the devils would absolutely up that offer and he'd get at least 6 offers greater on 7/1. they basically said that if he wants to sign with the devils, he will have every opportunity to at a better offer so why not wait.



If true, good job by his agents looking out for him. This gives me hope. If he really wants to stay in NJ, I think 10 year / 70 mill is too little for Zach personally, but it depends on if Lou budges when Zach's agents tell him the Islanders are offering 10 year, 85 million or whatever.

maybe we should do a poll...

Problem is now that "ninjas" is in my head, I'm having a tough time thinking of anything else.


Hot lady aliens, maybe?

FORWARDS
Zach Parise ($7.500m) / Travis Zajac ($3.888m) / Ilya Kovalchuk ($6.667m)
Patrik Elias ($6.000m) / Adam Henrique ($0.854m) / Dainius Zubrus ($3.400m)
Alexei Ponikarovsky ($2.000m) / Jacob Josefson ($0.900m) / David Clarkson ($2.667m)
Ryan Carter ($1.000m) / Stephen Gionta ($1.000m) / Steve Bernier ($1.000m)
Eric Boulton ($0.663m)

DEFENSEMEN
Anton Volchenkov ($4.250m) / Marek Zidlicky ($4.000m)
Henrik Tallinder ($3.375m) / Andy Greene ($3.000m)
Adam Larsson ($0.925m) / Mark Fayne ($3.000m)
Peter Harrold ($0.750m) /

GOALTENDERS
Martin Brodeur ($4.000m)
Johan Hedberg ($1.250m)

BUYOUTS
Colin White ($1.000m) / Trent Hunter ($0.667m)

CAPGEEK.COM TOTALS (follow @capgeek on Twitter)
(these totals are compiled without the bonus cushion)
SALARY CAP: $70,300,000; CAP PAYROLL: $63,754,166; BONUSES: $262,500
CAP SPACE (22-man roster): $6,545,834

I think this is a good starting point.

Why do people think that because of 1 good playoff year Gionta's going to be making a dime over 800k? He barely played in the regular season.

I also think 3m for Fayne is soaring a bit

i would put odds at him re-signing at 70%.

over/under on contract 10.1 years/ $70.1MM. I am taking the under on both.


I feel like (and have felt since the third round) that making it to the Final but losing may be the situation with the best odds of keeping Parise in Jersey - we've shown him we can win, with a coach he likes and respects (and hopefully finally some coaching stability), but there's now unfinished business for Parise here.

Does it ultimately mean anything? Probably not - but I could see the reasons for leaving if we flamed out in the first round, or if we won the Cup. I can still see the reasons for leaving now, but I really want to believe he'd be more inclined to finish what he started here than jump on board somewhere else.

Zachs cap hit should not be higher then 7M.. Just not worth it long term. A lot of people here have rightly pointed out that Zach is a high energy type of player and will likely not age as well as someone who relies more on talent then work ethics. In fact, I even think 7M is a bit on the high side of his value. Is he really worth more money then Kopitar/Datsyuk/Sedins/Spezza/Iginla/Thornton??

Trade bait. I know his value is sh!t right now, but I wouldn't be surprised if Tedenby is part of a package if Lou deals for a defenseman.

"The $297,297 Kovalchuk missed today is money he will never, ever get back. And the more cheques he misses, the better the deal is going to have to be for the players to justify him sitting out. And unlike the owners, the players can direct their leadership to get a deal done regardless of how disadvantageous it is to them."

There's no way they trade him. We couldn't even get a 2nd round pick for him, I'm guessing. His value is down the drain.

What we need is a top 6 offense guy and even more so if Parise walks. Tedenby's worth is at best right now a spare part thrown in as part of a larger deal.

$64 million? With a front-loaded Kovalchuk deal costing nearly $5M more than his cap hit? I can't see it. I don't know where the cuts are going to come, but I can't see it.

If push comes to shove could they trade Zidlicky? I also think Fayne gets less than $3 million.

Whatever trade is made if there is one and he's part of it, that's all I expect Tedenby to be- a throw in. I was just making the observation that I can see him being a small part of a bigger package if Lou makes a move, be it for a forward or a defenseman.

I think 6.5 would be appropriate. Problem is, some other team will offer him 7.5 easily.
