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



Trade Parise for Rick Nash.

I don't think the Kovy trade and deal will have any negative affect on his decision in and of itself. I could be way off here, but I don’t feel egos clashing or resentment
Its how and if Kovy produces that will go into the thought process. Can the devils win with him and Zach? That obviously will be a factor

then you have the basic check lists of;

Stability and money will be big factors (can you blame him)

A hockey town would be a draw for him, and add financial incentives

And a winning chance; gotta drink from the cup

Right now it’s looking precarious at best. There is a ton of money coming off the books across the league. And if we cant be a major player in the bidding wars he gone.

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.



The reason I consider this faulty logic - Zach isn't lazy. He's massively creative and he wants the room to develop that winning team. He doesn't strike me as some guy who solely wants his name etched on the Cup before he retires. He wants a legacy that he can share in the responsibility for. Like Nieds had to leave the Devils to feel true ownership of a Cup win.

Zach is feeling out if that can happen here. Actually I think he's pretty sure it can - as sure as he is that he can make it happen anywhere else. In fact he can make it happen here sooner than anywhere else most likely.

If he feels like he can get more -- I dont want to say credit or respect -- but if he feels he'll have more ownership of the team somewhere else he may go. But he wants to hold on to all he's built here and the team is showing they will allow him to in title ---

So it boils down to how he honestly feels -- does he honestly feel like he's contributing to the top of his ability here -- that he is allowed to and that he himself is capable.

Don't you all know how that is? I never understand why it's difficult to empathize with that goal. It's completely non-selfish in terms of what it brings to the team.

Trade him to Edmonton for Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Gagne. Good deal no?

In all seriousness, I think Parise isn't worth more than Elias money and if we do end up giving him that money we won't win anytime in the forseeable future...

exactly. ppl saying trade him for so-and-so shouldnt be allowed in the arena. ZACH PARISE IS THE NEW JERSEY DEVILS. this isnt brian gionta, this isnt brian rafalski, this isnt even patrick elias. zach is a much more skilled player and if you dont think lou knows that, then youre nuts. parise will be here for a long time you can bet on that, and if he's not its not because we cant afford him. devils fans, EVERY TIME PARISE TOUCHES THE PUCK AT HOME WE SHOULD CHEER. In my opinion thats a fantastic idea. it will show the support he has here. anyone else with me???

If we trade we better get like Josh Harding, another player like Devin Setoguchi and a pick.

if it's Minnesota lets get Heatley (although he's 31), Harding, and a pick.

But regardless, lets hope our boy Zach is stayin in Jersey.. and I almost wish this thread was never started because i cant stand talking about this subject more than we already are

Sorry but you lost me at saying parise has meant more to this team than Elias. You obviously have not watched the team and how much he meant to the team between 99 and 04.

Plain and simple, it all comes down to how much of a mess the team is actually in financially.

I dont think trading him is an option. It's never been done before unless someone was a borderline problem - even then Gomez nor Holik was traded. Gomez was struggling and Holik was an ass.
