I saw a great idea over on hf boards. Send all the stuff to Parises house. Someone needs to find the address of his new place. That would be epic.


Just send it to the Wild.

See, if anyone wanted to do something fun during Parise's return, it be keep any Parise merchandise you no longer want to own until that day and dump it on the ice after a Devils' goal or right after the national anthem.

"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

I'd be down with sending all of our Parise stuff to Zach himself- as long as we can include a container of dog sh!t in the package, and a nice note that reads "fvck you you lying scumbag, signed, The Devils Fans".

I've got a Parise retro jersey, St. Pats jersey, and the McFarlane figure (which I became the keeper of some time back).

I have no idea what I'm doing with any of that.

Well not wearing it is the first thing that comes to mind.....

NEW JERSEY In keeping with the fact they are the Devils, New Jersey actually went with a villain by the name of Lex Lou-Lamoriello, an evil genius who finds ways to get around the salary cap until he is stopped in his tracks by Bett-man.

Now have a useless Parise jersey / shirt and in a few days (hours?) a useless Rick Nash jersey as well. Fortunately the jerseys are both cheap China knockoffs so only $40 each.

I never bought any. I refuse to buy anything that is personalized with anyones name unless it says Stevens or Brodeur on it.

Same here but just for jerseys. I have an Elias jersey too. I did buy a kovy and henrique t shirt though but never anything parise. I'll probably replace my parise bobblehead in my devils room though.

It kind of pisses me off to see that video of someone burning their Parise tee shirt.

I mean look, if it bugs you that much that he left and you swear you'll never ever wear it again, give the fvcking thing to Goodwill or drop it in a clothing donation box. Don't be wasteful purely out of spite of a guy you've never meaningfully met.

Me, I've got a throwback Parise jersey that I'll probably still wear because I like the colors on our throwback jerseys. Maybe get the name changed someday but I doubt it.

Never got any Parise stuff, so many people had that or Brodeur. My sister actually got a Zajac jersey, not authentic but still good. waiting to see what happens - If Kovy gets captain I'm slapping a C on my jersey. The ones you get in stores don't come with As or Cs just name and number. I had a Langer that was more authentic, fight strap and all, but I couldn't find a Kovy one when he signed except for one that's maybe a size bigger, and I wasn't going to wait 6-8 weeks for China to make it and ship it here and cost me $400.

I think it depends on the item and the cost

I have one of his gameworn and I am never throwing it out. I tore up his poster that I had. The autographs I do have I am keeping because I still like to collect them

I got a player t that I will use when I go to the beach or paint and a retro parise jersey that I will either sell or just keep in the closet. I have 25 jerseys in my collection and that is the only parise one so not a huge deal for me lol.

I still see nieuwendyk and Gilmour jerseys at the arena so I don't know why people say they will burn their sh!t. Just silly to me and outside of a few given we knew this could happen for a good year or so.

it took everything in me to wait until now to buy (or in this case not buy) parise gear. even a tshirt jersey. these days with the way things are you gotta wait til theyre locked up long term.

marty, elias, stevens, kovalchuk, danekyo are the only devils you can buy freely with i think.

sorry again to anyone who spent their hard earned cash on parise gear.

If anyone has an address for the Wild, I think it would be funny to box up all our Parise sh!t and flood their offices with it. Why not? Might be kind of vindictive, but it's harmless and it'll probably annoy the sh!t out of them.

Gilmour was only on the team for a season and like 20 games or so. Joe actually helped us win a cup.

A better comparison would be Gomez and Holik. I sure as hell don't see too many Gomez jerseys floating around anymore even though a few Holik ones popped up again when he came back for his 2nd run with team there still aren't as many as their use to be.

Gomez and holik went to a rival while parise went to a team that we see once, maybe twice a year. We all also kinda figured that parise coming back was iffy at best so I really do not know why so many people are taking this personally, especially since we really haven't won a cup or anything with parise unlike the other two.

I am actually getting a little bit of a kick at how much the Facebook page of the crazies are going nuts about this and taking it as personally as anything. You would think parise beat up their spouse, raped their daughter and shot their dog by the way they have been reacting. We survived before parise and will survive after.
