If he goes to the Wild, after all the talks about "wanting to be on a team that has a chance to win the Cup" after he was our captain on this Devils team that just went to the finals then decides to give that up to go to Minnesota, who sucks and won't be good for anytime soon then it was all a joke.
Truth is, if he goes to the Wild, he just wanted to go home and grab a huge payout. There's nothing wrong with that but don't act like you are going there cause it's your best shot at winning the Cup and don't tell all the fans who showed up to greet the team back from LA "not to worry" when they are chanting please come back.
If Parise signs with the Wild or any other team he can go fvck himself and I wish him nothing but the worst.
How long are the Devils going to be good? There's uncertainty here too...plenty of it. I don't necessarily think that last year's Cup run has cemented the Devils as SC contenders for years to come. And as we all know, Brodeur and Lamoriello aren't going be here forever.
Parise's reasons for leaving only have to be good reasons to Parise and the people that are most important to him. If going home and getting well-paid are his reasons, so be it. His choice.
Maybe the Wild aren't good right NOW, but we've seen how quickly things can change in the NHL...Zach just saw that first-hand.
I'm not going to kill him for one "on the spot" quote he uttered in an emotional moment...I never took that as gospel or binding.
If he goes, he goes.
