Pittsburgh is OFFICIALLY OUT on Zach Parise. He will not be joining the Penguins.

This is speculation on my part but it looks like teams are being informed they are out so his official decision should come soon enough.

Okay, so how do teams get players then? Yes, you can't keep a guy underfoot for 10+ years anymore. I don't see what this has to do with anything. So long as Minnesota drafts well in the upcoming years, they should still develop prospects, who can then play for them. Or they can sign free agents. And like I said, anyone trying to predict 6-7 years down the line will look pretty foolish a lot of the time - injuries, unexpected trades, players who pop up out of nowhere - could Minnesota be a great team? Maybe.


Do we even know if they HAVE drafted well yet?

It doesn't look significantly better than ours, and we're frowned upon in general.

What was he supposed to say when he said things like "We'll be ready to go next year," or "Oates leaving is a big loss for us?" "The Devils will be back next year," and "Oates is a big loss for the Devils." If he says stuff like that days after losing in the finals and while still under contract with the Devils then everyone would read into it that he won't be coming back. Either way fans would look into it way too much and it's not Zach's fault. None of us really know what was going on in his head but my guess is that at that time he wanted to come back but once he became a free agent it made the decision more difficult than he was expecting. He didn't know who was going to offer what and assuming he goes to Minnesota with Suter, he didn't know Suter was going there yet either.

I'm going to be upset if he leaves, but I won't hate the guy. I have a Parise World Junior Championships jersey and a Parise Devils jersey. I'm not sure yet if I'm going to have them re-customized. He will still be one of my favorite players because of his unmatched work ethic and I'm looking forward to having him on the Olympic team for years to come, and if he goes to the Wild I guess I'll be rooting for him in the World Championships almost every year too haha.

Zach could have said plenty of things. "Oates is a big loss." "It's a shame to lose Oates." "Oates is a good coach. He'll do great in Washington." These are all pretty neutral and fans wouldn't really be able to look into them.

I read somehing that by rule, Zach would have to officially inform the Devils he isn't coming back.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.

Brodin is well-regarded, Granlund tore up the Finnish league, Coyle had nearly 2 points a game for St. John, and Zack Phillips is doing well there too. It's a very good stable of prospects. If they weren't run by morons they'd still have Nick Leddy.

That may be the case but there'll be no announcement or leak from the Devils that they're out.

The real close relationship is Gilbert and Suter. They are legitimate best friends and was the main reason they traded for Tom last year. Turned out it actually worked.

Parise will be 39-11 months. Same difference.
