Some interesting tweets from Chip Alexander (Hurricanes Reporter)

https://twitter.com/...509924768661504

"Rutherford says Canes may receive answer on Parise today. Said decision on Suter probably would take longer."

https://twitter.com/...510253069410304

"The "answer" on Parise may be whether Canes are on the "short list." Final decision by Parise's camp could come tomorrow, he said."

If he goes to Pittsburgh or Philly, he can suck my dick. Seriously. After all that BS about wanting to stay here, all that "we" sh!t, the "don't worry" after fans chanted at him to stay. Absolute horsesh!t.

Nah, I disagree with this.

Zach was coming off an injury that was rather severe. It made sense to not go all in then, and see how he came back. The thing that gets me is not having signed him once we were able to after the 1st. He had shown by then he was worth the long term deal. The 7/50 rumor that his agents talked him into turning down is what annoys me the most.

If he goes to the Penguins, its worse than Gomez to me. I will never cheer for this guy ever again.


Not locking him up long term and not having faith in his recovery could end up being the mistake though.

I never would have thought Pitt was a threat to take him though. Especially after he said NY was a definite no.

If he does go to Pitt (or Philly) though...

Not that he would care, but I don't think Parise even understands how much he'll be hated here if he pulls this sh!t and goes to a division rival. He has no fvcking idea.

The fvcking media can't wait for him to go to Pittsburgh too, they'd have a field day with the best American forward on the NHL's chosen team. Along with the face of the league in Crosby and the best Russian forward too. They really would be like the Yankees with worldwide appeal.

Bettman's wet dream. Systematically defiling the Devils while making sure his biggest cash cow can keep milking...

Guys, nothing has happened yet, relax.

I don't see Parise staying, but if he goes to Pittsburgh, which I doubt, money will play a HUGE PART.

After all these negative/angry comments about Zach signing with someone else, it's going to be really funny if he re-signs with the Devils :giggle: It was the same thing with Kovy.

People expected Kovy to leave, they were just mad at him stringing it out for two plus weeks. With Zach it's more personal than that, ESPECIALLY if he goes to Pittsburgh or Philly. If he goes to Carolina to be with his buddy MacLean that'd be pretty bad too but not on that level. Minnesota, I'd cringe and laugh...it'd be a phyrric victory at best.

Money is the only reason he's (possibly) leaving.

What I'm gathering is the Devils made a competitive offer to Parise. Not as much as some teams are offering but if he wants to stay, he can.
