Its too early to justify this with a strong answer. We don't know the situation or whats going on.

If Zach truly wants to be here long-term, I don't care if they go to the last second before UFA next year as long as it gets done. If he doesn't want to be here, I hope we trade him. All indications are that he wants to be here long-term, so can only wait and see.

I'm only open to trading Parise if there is no way he'll stay here long term. There's a lot of things behind the scenes that could be stalling his hopeful longterm deal.

Where's the 'only if the team's a borderline playoff team/out of contention' option? Cause odds are, Manta negativity aside this team's going to be in the playoffs again this year so that would preclude Zach being dealt at the deadline. Especially if the Devils are fighting for first again.

If they are going to trade him the only realistic time to do it is now, where you're not strip-mining the team and can get something of value back on this year's NHL roster.

Who would you want in return if you were Lou and were to trade him now?

trade a player who wants to spend his career here? Lou wants him here and so does Zach, they know are doing and will get this accomplished when they feel to.

If this does, in fact, happen, it seems like it would be a definite goodbye to Parise. Maybe I'd consider sending him off if we were absolutely tanking, but that will most likely not happen. I think that if we have a solid season, he'll want to stay, especially given our bright future. The last thing we're trying to do is make him feel unwanted here.

Why would you say no?

Lou has the entire year to work on an extension. If he isn't signed by then, he probably isn't going to sign and will likely leave.

....not the amount of cash.
....not the length.
.....not even the fact he's a UFA next July.



We're probably looking at another 'elephant in the room' situation.


That's what the Devils can't afford....again. :whistling:

+1, i really dont know why anyone would say yes?

obviously he could test the market and decide that he actually want to stay in NJ... like Kovy. But just like a girlfriend dumping you... making out with a few guys at the bar then coming back to you a few days after... youre still glad she came back but still... its always in the back of ur mind what she did haha

edit: well the more that i think about it... it depends on how the team is playing and if they think they can make a serious push in the playoffs... they might need him for that run... but they could get a nice return also...

It all depends if he gets signed before the season is over or not. For all we know the fact that Parise is on a 1 year deal could mean that he'll have a career season.

In my head I see it as:

We make playoffs, parise stays.
If not, he tests the market.

I can't see why Parise wouldn't test the market. If we're very, very, very lucky he takes a home town discount to stay, but he has to want to see what he's worth as a UFA.

Everyone should just accept the fact that he's testing the market, and be pleasantly surprised if he doesn't.

BTW if he decides not to test, it'll probably be because he's worried about fully recovering from his injury during the course of the season, which isn't necessarily the best news...

Lou can offer a long term contract to Parise anytime after 1/1/2012. If they agree then he doesn't become an UFA on 7/1/2012.

""Once you go to arbitration, you can only get a one-year situation in this case," Lamoriello said. "So, really what we have done is avoid arbitration by settling on one year with the understanding and intent to take whatever time is necessary to get a long-term deal.""

"According to Tom Gulitti of The Record, both Lamoriello and the Parise camp will continue to discuss a longer-term deal, but per CBA rules, he cannot sign a new deal beginning in the 2012-13 season until Jan. 1, 2012."

As far as us fans know, Parise's biggest concern was the coaching situation and the fact that we can't seem to keep a coach. I'd imagine part of the reason he only has a 1 year deal is to see how he feels about De Boer as a coach.
