i hope the rags fans see that. it's made me sick to my stomach the last couple months with the way they talk about how zach is gonna sign with them. thats the last jersey i wanna see zach wearing.



They were as right about Parise wearing a blue jersey next year as Sather was about them winning the Cup. Joke of a fan-base, joke media outlets, and joke organization, most arrogant bunch of people in the league.

as long as he's not wearing a rangers jersey. i can't fathom going to a devils/rangers game at the rock and seeing parise on the back of a rangers jersey.

Parise said it's possible he'll re-sign before July 1. Obviously, have to wait to see what happens.

I dont' see Zach actually making much more per year, so I can see Lou giving him a Kovy like deal.
There aren't many teams with the space and a new CBA coming around. I have a feeling he signs here long term.

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.

I didn't feel like going through the whole thread to see if this was posted, but this what the Devils may be up against. Minnesota may be dragging out the treasure chest.

Even if they sign him, it could be a fail. Overpaying is great in the offseason and for backpages. Living up to whatever the overpayment is...that's a whole different beast. "The get my guy at any cost" has a way of blowing up far often than it works out. And the higher the cost, the brighter the spotlight, and the shorter the honeymoon.

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.

If Minnesota gets him, good luck and god bless. Minnesota is pretty much a disaster of a franchise, and while they've got some decent young players, they'll find a way to screw it up like they always do. The Devils were never winning this with the highest bid.

I get the sense that the Devils don't have to match the best offer, but they obviously need to be in the ballpark (less than $5 million in total dollars?).

The hell is wrong with people?


So I understand, posting a first line google search link (you try it-- google zach parise wedding) to his wedding registry to try and see if he really is marrying a NJ school teacher (which means there's a strong chance he stays here) is "wrong", but reporting Lou sightings at Panera Bread is fine? Ok, got it.

I think the issue is not so much posting the existence of the registry as the implication that people should send him a gift. That is very, very creepy.

Ahh. I thought the smiley face at the end of the quote would let on it was a joke. :noclue:

Yeah I'm worried that the Wild will do something stupid like 12 years, 100 million whereas we'll offer something reasonable like 8-56 and get blown out of the water. Of course it'll be a phyrric victory for them, but hey if they can't win they might as well get the hometown guy to keep the fans happy.

I think if Zach had his way he'd sign with NJ now, I think if the agents (and his dad) had their way he'd go to Minnesota. I just hope Zach makes the decision he wants to make before he's compelled to make one he'll regret.

"The Devils have high standards, that's the difference. We have a standard to live up to every year, and a couple of teams in our area don't have the standards we do." - Pat Burns

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

his agents don't care where he goes - just how much. his dad would probably like minny but whatever.
