I know this topic has been beaten to death but I just want to see the views of you guys on this topic. Forget everything that has been said already, what are YOUR personal views on this. Will he stay, if so will that entail a large contract? If he goes, where do you think he will end up?


I personally see him leaving at the end of this season. I think he is a tad bit bitter about Kovalchuk. I get the feeling he is young and frustrated in a hockey sense. I see him going to somewhere west like LA or Columbus.

I do not think he is staying. He will either be traded at the deadline or walk at free agency.

I hope I am wrong.

Haven't we debated this enough? Can we just sit back and enjoy the season already? There will be 865423 threads about this soon enough.

haha i have been wondering the same thing...last night he did an interview on nbc nhl overtime show and they asked him if him being the captain would make him stay

he said twice we're working on it looking perturbed...i really think he wants to stay but can nj afford him was something that wasnt brought up

one of the experts who i didn't recognize said he's going to be gone and lou will be moving him early to get good value out of him and set the team up for a rebuild

i am pretty bad with the rosey covered devil glass' but i think he will sign...thats my gut...lou doesnt want to move him and i think he wants to stay and the only thing holding this back is money

ques if we can't sign him do we trade him for prospects and picks?

btw he mentioned being captain is helped by having kovi an "ex-captain" on the team

"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."

I think it's more like a need to wallow in the anxiety with as many as can stand it.

I hear you Quinn!

I can't get a read. I think he's not petty or compartmentalized though.

I DO get a distinct feeling he's doing all he can to help Kovalchuk. I think that he's doing his best to not leave the devils or more precisely, any of his teammates in the lurch. He's not pulling any Holik "I can look in de mirror and sleep like a leetle bebby at night... can anyone else on dis team?" while preparing to move on all season long.

I think Chico's take is coming from his relationship with JP -- and I think that makes it far to easy to over-simplify. JP is emotionally removed and has a different ambition for his son. He can't know what will truly make Zach happy.... it's his job as a dad to push Zach out of his comfort zone just in case ZACH doesn't really know what he wants. (and Zach is no fool -- he knows anything he says to Chico will go right back to his dad one way or the other -- so the communication is tainted - not in a negative way but in a keep every one happy - keep everyone's emotions as level as possible until it's time to really make a decision. Chico is a loud mouth who thinks he's helping -- which he IS but you have to keep it in the proper perspective too...)

In the end there will be consensus - and since every one seems to be coming from the right place I'm fine with however it plays out. I really like Zach and wish he'd stay but I'd understand if he left.

I feel ZERO ill will on any side. Every side has to question loyalties and such --but I approve of what every side is doing :noclue:

Absolutely, I mean I get bored in one spot in like 2 months. I cant imagine playing at that caliber for several years. It does seem that his connection with his teammates is what is going to keep him or push him away. On the other hand, if he does decide to leave, I would hate to see us get nothing in return for one of the top players in the league.

You love starting threads dude...you start off saying you know the topic has been beaten to death, but continue on beating the topic. I dont get it. Why not use a prior Parise thread? :noclue:

He wrote that so people wouldn't feel the need to tell him how stupid he was.
So all of you guys repeatedly saying he's beating a dead horse.... isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?

Perspective :evil:

If you don't like the thread, don't post in it. It's not rocket science.

Anyways, i think he's a goner. Hope we get something decent in return.

He wants to play for a winner, simple as that. He's tired of losing. IF this team can make the playoffs and somehow put together a decent run I think that will go a long way in convincing him to stay.

If Parise does leave to some place like Columbus then I hope we can make a deal and get Carter in return.
