BTW this is also sweet because it means my authentic Kovalchuk jersey with Alternate Captain's "A" on it will be legit for another season :dance:

parise hasn't displayed nearly the passion/fire/leadership that kovy has

this is just to appease the guy and get him to sign long term

like i said earlier, lame.


Sounds like you're another in the growing group who is getting suckered into Kovalchuk's wordsmithery in the media about team and winning and loving the fans.

Or maybe Parise didn't show the supporters enough love? Whatever the case, you really are making yourself look unknowledgable by stating Parise lacks "passion/fire/leadership that kovy has". If you know anything about Lamoriello since Day 1, he would never appease giving a player the "C" for a future contract.

I had my whole jersey done by Exclusive Pro (they do all the NHL teams' jerseys so it's 100% authentic)

Sorry I'd rather give the C to a guy who wants to play here for the next decade and a half. And who also sticks up for his fellow teammates, accepts responsibility, and goes above and beyond both on and off the ice.

Can you really say this about Parise?

Good choice, I hope he doesn't start squeezing the stick more as a result. I prefer it be a defensmen the majority of the time but there is no choice on defense. Let's hope Kovalchuk flies under the radar and gets 40-45 goals.

I'm pretty sure just about ANYONE who was given the kind of deal Kovy was would want to play here the next decade-and-a-half. He wasn't getting that kind of coin to play in the NHL from anywhere else. He may very well be happy here, but I don't think Kovy had some lifelong dream to suit up for the Devils. Money spoke loudly with that one.

All I am going to say about Parise is that I think you're selling him extremely short, and I think a lot of Devils fans would agree. But I guess you don't like him, you're a Kovy fanboy, whatever.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

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.

Apparently you have inside knowledge of Parise's future plans with the Devils. Choosing Parise as captain only to have him walk the next year would make the Devils look very foolish. Lou wouldn't put up with it, and I honestly think that if Lou thought there was a good chance that Parise walks next year, he would have preferred to keep the captaincy open until he was sure of the situation. Make no doubt about it, making Parise captain is a huge indication that he is likely staying long term.


And who also sticks up for his fellow teammates, accepts responsibility, and goes above and beyond both on and off the ice.

Parise gives 110% every shift he's out. He is at every Devils event signing autographs. If that isn't "going above and beyond both on and off the ice", I don't know what is.

Jaime L. disagree's with you, and i mention him because he was out the door when he said that, not under Lou's reign anymore.

Good choice, if it wasn't gonna be patty then this is the obvious one.

We can only hope this is a good sign for him re-signing after the season.

How do you know Parise doesn't want to stay a Devil? Because he didn't put his name on a long term contract soon enough for your liking? How do you know what's going on behind the scenes? Perhaps he has no control over anything until the financial situation of the franchise is sorted out? Parise and the Devils did the right thing this summer for all parties.

Parise has been nothing but great with his contract being brought up every 10 seconds. What more do you want the guy to say or do? He's a free agent, just like Kovalchuk once was. Do you really think Kovalchuk would have come back to the Devils for less then that contract he finally got? If so, you really need to wake up.


And who also sticks up for his fellow teammates,


You're clueless. So you're saying Steve Yzerman, Wayne Gretzky, Crosby, Lemieux, Lidstrom, Toews, Sakic for example, weren't great captains and Cup winners because they didn't go punch a guy in the head on the ice to defend someone, too?

accepts responsibility,


You are getting even more clueless, if possible. I guess you really have been brainwashed by Kovalchuk's wordsmithery in the media.

and goes above and beyond both on and off the ice.


Now, you're just really lost.

Can you really say this about Parise?


Yes.

He's a lost cause. It isnt worth it.

Parise has earned it. Would he have been my choice for the C? No. Is it a smart choice though? Yes.

Realistically, this is about this season. If Parise leaves, then we name a new captain next season. NBD.
