The Post is basically the equivalent of the National Enquirer that tries to pass itself off as a legitimate newspaper. I tend to believe the NY Times article. However, should this sale go through, the biggest question that remains is, can this get done in time to re-sign Parise on July 1?
Overall the NY Post is indeed a glorified tabloid but a lot of times they provide more accurate reporting than the NY Times and NY Daily News. Hell the NY Post is the only paper who has a sports section that acknowledges the NHL existence. Good luck trying to find daily reporting on hockey in the Daily News or Times.
In this case it looks like a certain reporter for the NY Post has a sort of grudge against the Devils for whatever reason. The fact that Larry Brooks and Mark (N)Єverson (the Posts beat writer for the Devils) barely have said a peep about this when they too should be all over it. This just proves its really just this one reporter who is spewing this garbage and his own collegues either think its bogus or weak at best.
This new Times report is indeed optimistic and seems more accurate as the details actually make sense and acknowledges certain givens that the NY Post reporter does not. Therefore I am def more inclined to believe the Times report more than any of the Post reports so far. Again like I said earlier Kosman's last report was erratic at best and it looks like he was just listing off every possible scenario that could happen so he can cover his own ass.
