when I see the contract he gets, I'm going to say "I'll miss him, but I can understand why Lou let him go."

I totally agree with this......

"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."

My response to Brooks:

Brooks, are you an idiot or something? Your whole premise is based on the falsity that the date for the Devils loan structure is July 1st. Were you watching (AKA, DOING YOUR JOB) when the commissioner expressed to the media that July 1st is in fact NOT the date or deadline for any Devils financial matter. It's also a near certainty that you have absolutely NO idea what's really going on with the Devils ownership situation. Where'd you get the figures and numbers from? You think that kind of information leaves Devils offices? Do you realize that a bank that controls a large loan for a corporate enterprise is not going to talk to the media about it? If you want to find out why print media is failing, look in the mirror in the morning. Stop printing articles that have no facts in them. It's more of an opinion piece based off of where your allegiance lies. Millions of people can write the same CRAP in a blog for FREE. It's a shame you get paid to dish out BULLsh!t on a daily basis.

Players walk. We've seen that happen. It's not an unrealistic possibility that Zach finds other suitors, perhaps a team like Detroit or Nashville, especially if the latter loses Suter or Weber.

Parise might actually be a piece Nashville needs to go forward.

I also won't discredit the chance of him signing in a place like Toronto, although his personality doesn't meld well with that of Phaneuf or Kessel.

How about Colorado? Who knows. The point is that he can walk.

Its part and parcel part of the business.

If Zach leaves, we would have to focus our attention of acquiring a Grade A defenseman that can hit. A difference maker on the blue line, this until Larsson is ready to be that person.

I'm not so concerned about scoring on the blue line. I really want a d-man that can change the game with a hit (this is for changing momentum in games where we aren't scoring goals).

Henrique is a better playmaker than Parise. He's not as naturally gifted of a goal scorer, but losing Parise will mean that Henrique will have to come to prominence a lot quicker.

This also allows Kovy to shift back to the left side, and perhaps, give Tedenby one last shot to do something on the right.

I'll take Parise for $8 million per or less. More than that, let him walk.

In the meantime, lets enjoy game 4 and worry about this after the cup has been awarded.

Thats scary

It's not scary...just reality. Zach has been Devil property since March 29, 2004 (first contract). It's not like he had much of a choice in the matter...not saying he should have, as that's how the draft and early-career contacts work, but now that he HAS the choice to look around and go wherever he wants. It's a right and oppotunity he's waited for eight years to get...if I was him, I would want to explore it as well.

And I think life will go on for the Devils...I'm not going to say the Devils won't miss him, but I do feel like this team will be OK...it will not be the end of the Devils as we knew them.

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.

It's a speculative article on a slow news day. It doesn't say anything anyone hasn't said here already: Devils have financial issues, or other teams could throw more money at him. This is all true. Otherwise no one really knows whether Zach is happy here, or how much he likes the organization, and the article doesn't purport to do so.

FWIW, as long as it's not the Rangers, it won't be the end of the world, especially if some throws an enormous deal at him. (Although, really the Rags would be better off throwing a ton of money at Suter, but don't tell Sather I said that).

Does anyone think that Parise signs a one year deal to let the CBA come together then next season gets his career deal?

No chance. The kind of offers Parise will see in July, he will not see once all the loopholes are closed. And he could get hurt.

Its sports writer speculation BS. The timing is suspect, but not surprising.

Just prepare yourself. The entire hockey world is going to be talking about Zach potentially leaving ad nauseum whether we fall tonight or win in 7.

The only team Zach could go to that will annoy me and make me bitter towards him is NYR. Philly can't afford him. I'd also be a bit bitter if he went to Boston. If he leaves the conference, I will not hate him. That includes Detroit. He will be booed upon his return though, which I cant say the same for guys like Madden, Gionta, and even Langenbrunner, who I've readily cheered when they return. If Zach leaves now, he's earned the right, but I will not be a fan of his anymore.

If someone gives Zach a blank check on July 1st, he'd be foolish not to take it.

Re: Brooks. He's an unprofessional, juvenile moron. This type of low-quality reporting shouldn't surprise anyone.

LGD!


$8 mill, really? I think that is a definite overpayment. If he gets offers for over $8, I would be shocked. I thought $8 is the absolute most he will be offered, I was thinking more along the lines of $7.25-$7.5 cap hit at most...

No one is giving Zack $8 million a year. No teams can afford it. He gets 6.5-$7 million tops.

The plan is to undermine the role of an independent press while constantly whining that any reportage that deviates from a staunch conservative narrative is biased … while at the same time filling the editorial vacuum that that creates by filling the propaganda juggernaut from under the guise of a news organization. And that organization would be called Fox News.

Socialism is no more impractical than capitalism - either in their purest form are ridiculous, unachievable ideals. A healthy society requires healthy doses of both.

Its all about upfront money. I agree that his cap hit will be around 7mil but some teams will give him 8-10 up front for several years. With us paying Kovy 11mil in real money the next 4 and another year at 10 after that I worry how much "real" money can be given.
