There's been a consistent amount of fan interest in Parise to Minnesota since... about this time last year, actually. It's all predicated on the idea that Parise is somehow going to be magically drawn to play hockey where he grew up. I think it's all bullsh!t personally, but you never know (think about it, would that be that large of a consideration for you personally, if you had the choice between a few job offers? To some it is [see: Brent Sutter :rolleyes:], but it's not that big of a deal to most.). He certainly hasn't said anything to give the hopeful speculation reason to continue, though.

I'd think that what his (soon to be, right?) wife wants is more important than where he grew up. It should be if he knows what's good for him, anyway. lol!

We have a CLutterbuck in David Clarkson. I say Harding and Setoguchi for Zach and a pick.

I would burn the Pru Center down myself if thats what we got in return.

If traded, I'd expect a #2 defense men or a #1/#2 center in return.

Weber from Nashville? Larsson and Weber patrolling the bluelines for years to come wouldnt be bad.

Assuming Parise really wants to stay in N.J., what does the board think is a fair contract offer? I think going $8 mil a year is too steep (unless it's for a short-term contract of say 3-5 years - which wouldn't be my first choice). I'm thinking something of the order of an average cap hit of $7.4 for 8 years ($59.2 mil) is about what we can and should expect. Now, if Parise were to hit the open market, I'm sure he'd get $8 mil from some team. And quite honestly, I think his numbers/stats alone won't justify an extravagant contract. However, it's the little things he does and what he means to the heart of soul of this team that makes a mid $7-million annual offer justified. As of right now, I'm really not sure what to think as far as a timeline for signing. Simply put, what is Lou waiting for? Does he not want to negotiate during the season to back up past precedent? Is he waiting for more info as to the long-term salary cap projections? Is he waiting to see where the Devils are at regarding playoff positioning with regard to whether or not he'd even contemplate trading him? At this point, your guess is as good as mine. As usual, it's yet another potential soap opera. Sure it's intriguing on some levels. But man, it's really starting to get frustrating. But then again, what isn't frustrating about rooting for the Devils these days?

i dont know... i'd go something like 7 years 50m (7.1m cap) or 10 years 60m (6m cap)

what i hate is that meehan is obviously gonna compare with other players... but most of those guys with similar stats are way overpaid... not helping

what i'd like a guy like Zach do... is sign a "good contract" but not a contract where they are grinding to get TOP DOLLARS... not that i think that Zach doesnt deserves it, he does! But then when you have those HUGE contract and that you have a bad year or bad streak you have that in the back of your mind and if it goes real bad youre the one getting all the hate cause youre overpaid...

personally i'd go with something lighter but alright and that i'd feel okay with... guys like Richards/Carter never get bash about their contracts

you can say that it really doesn't matter if Zach grew up in Minnesota or whatever, but when the guy's father comes out that confidently and says what he said, you gotta worry at least a little

If parise doesnt re-sign i'm personally going to vanderbeeks home and burning it down and pissing on the ashes for spending our money on kovi instead of the unquestionably more talented parise.

Parise is more talented than Kovy? Are you basing this off of career statistics or off of this year's performance? Because you're wrong based on both.. Koval-hate much? Can't blame you when a large portion of the fan base still hates on him excessively because, hey, there's gotta be a scapegoat

On the Fayne thread he wished Fayne to be injured. I called him out on it and then he launched into a tirade on me about how I am a loser since I have over 3,000 posts amongst other things. He is just an idiot.

If Parise decides to go elsewhere, we have a bucket of money to spend on defense. It really isn't any more complicated than that to me. (It's a good thing I'm simple :) )

Sick smiley bro. My 13 yr old sister uses them texting as well, you guys the same age?


Wwwwaaahhhh!!!!!

Dude you really showed me in that last post of yours. I mean I have no defense at all and you are so cool I wish one day I was like you. I wish I could come up with the great 15 year old taunts that you put up here and the great contributions you make here.

I wrote a little thing about how idiotic your posts are and then you come back with an entire huge rant about me in this thread and on the fayne thread and you are calling me the whiny Bitch? Haha go look in the mirror buddy.

well just like when Mike Richard was a rookie and mouthing at Elias then Patty and Brylin told him he needed to shut his mouth and show respect to veterans that he was way too young and new to the game to act that way...

i think you should do the same dude

Nah, I'm 21, not that it's AT ALL relevant to anything. I figured that was all I needed to post because I knew everybody was going to lambaste you for your idiotic post anyway.

You threaten to burn down JVB's house if we don't sign ZP, citing the Kovalchuk contract (which has no bearing on whether or not we sign ZP.) You attack members because they call you out on your inane comments. You give no respect to Kovalchuk though this team would be nowhere without him this year. Why bother with you? You're wasting all our time.

Cue the "you're a jerk, look how many posts you have omg WOW no life" retort now. To save you the embarrassment, I have been here since 2005 and which gives me less than half a post per day on this site. So you can come up with something a little more original now.

Not to mention you claim Zach is "under appreciated here." That to me shows how clueless you truly are if you don't understand there is not one person on this board that does not want Zach Parise to be a Devil for life.

I'm 28 so I'm cooler! On topic.. Give Parise 7-7.5..maybe 8.. If he wants more let him walk. Pretty simple and I think everyone would agree.

Good post but the issue with him as I see it is not new poster vs veteran poster. Instead it is jackass poster vs non-jackass poster. Post counts does not matter in this arguement.

How exactly are you sure he would sign if the team didn't sign kovy? Much rather have a chance of having both then a chance at not having either.

Why are Devil fans fighting amongst each other? :blahblah: Such a weird fvcking fan base man. People are going to have opinions so just realize how dumb you're acting when you get mad at someone for thinking or saying something different than you. Like for instance, I don't really like Debour and I think Marty should have retired 3 years ago...you can agree or disagree with what I'm saying but don't be an a$$hole about it it's so lame, especially on a forum when you don't have to worry about having some courage and confronting someone face to face. :blahblah:


Anyway..IF the Devils are going to sign Parise, then hopefully it's something super long term to make sure he retires a Devil.
