tweets indicate that lou will meet with parise today and that assuming a deal isn't reached, he'll field offers with his agents in their toronto office. i'd expect him to make up his mind no latter than 7/2.

McKenzie:

Hearing NJD GM Lou Lamoriello to meet with Zach Parise today, one final time before Parise is scheduled to hit UFA market 12 noon tomorrow.

Parise expected to be in Toronto-area offices of his agents/advisors tomorrow to field offers/calls/visits etc.


Just got this... really don't like our odds if we don't get the deal done today...

tweets indicate that lou will meet with parise today and that assuming a deal isn't reached, he'll field offers with his agents in their toronto office. i'd expect him to make up his mind no latter than 7/2.


That's kind, I expect it to be over with by dinnertime tomorrow...

Yea, I think he'll be off the board very quickly. This won't be drawn out because so many teams moves will be dependent on what Zach does.

Being at your agent's office isnt diva-like. Id want to be on the front lines of that stuff as well.

I agree with previous sentiments that if Lou doesnt get it done today, he's all but gone.

I'm getting the idea that Parise is putting this all in his agents' hands. He seems too easily led. Maybe that's just me.

This is sad. This could be the last full day of Parise and Brodeur being Devils. I'm trying to be optimistic and think maybe its only going to be 1 of those players. Most likely we lose Parise and keep Marty, but the worst case just sucks.

Been wearing a lot of my Parise stuff the last couple days. Really hoping I will be able to wear it more in the future.

That said, losing Parise is not going to be doomsday for this franchise.

But it wont be devastating. We could finally focus on getting a goalie and try to get solid RW depth like a signing of Parenteau. But I want MB and ZP back.

So i guess Zach is officially testing the market he's gonna be in Toronto tomorrow to see offers

Reports Parise will be at agent W.Arnott's office tmw. Meanwhile, R.Suter on Wisconsin farm w/phone, agent N.Sheehy in Minnesota office.

If we lose Zach, I hope Lou tries to poach Carle from the Flyers just to troll them. Let Sal walk.

Sign Carle - 5.0
Sign Hudler - 4.0
Sign Marty - 5.5
Sign Parenteau - 3.5

Then grab a backup goalie or bring back Moose on the cheap.

McKenzie already tweeted that he's meeting with Lou one last time today, the plan is for him to be in Toronto tomorrow.

I feel that way too. I think they are really pushing for him to go to July 1st.

Well we'll find out tomorrow or the next day for sure but yeah that wouldn't be a good sign from a guy you were pegging as your captain for the next decade.

And yeah I do think it's diva-like to have teams come up to the agents' office for pitches, I might feel a little differently if they were coming up to his house but they're not.

Parenteau is definitely someone to look at signing tomorrow if Parise is gone. Don't know what he might be looking for but he's due for a good raise over his $1.25 million last year. Probably could go 4-5 million, cheaper than Zach at least. I don't know who the Devils replace Marty with. Hedberg as a starter is a little scary. This could speed things along with the team figuring out its goalie situation going into the future which I keep feeling Lou is putting off. I'd rather Marty 1 more year to allow the younger guys to develop.

I'm actually stepping back from the cliff, just for a minute.

For all intensive purposes, Lou's had his crap together this season, we have to give him that. Starting with getting the Islanders to take Rolston from us, then the big acquisition of Poni and the still decent deal of adding Zids, he hasn't made the mistakes of years past.

That being said, I WANT to believe he's got a better handle on things than we all think/what is being fed to us through the media...

But only time will tell and until then, we can all go back to freaking out.

The problem with the free agent market is how thin it is. A lot of teams are gunning for Parise...meaning a lot of teams are going to come up empty. That leaves a guy like Parenteau in a situation where he is going to make stupid money. I like Parenteau a fair amount, but his number is going to be crazy.

There is not going to be any good value in the free agent market. I mean there never is, but this could be the worst year ever.

Maybe we'll have a suck for McKinnin campaign next year.

I would also hope we don't waste time with Parenteau.

Getting rid of a below-average goalie and a top line wing don't turn this team from one of the best in the league to one of the worst, no matter what Scott Burnside thinks.
