I was thinking the same thing! I still need to find a way to get rid of my Parise jersey or have the stuff changed.

Well the Devils finally gave something back to the fans...who would have ever guessed it would be Zajac's autograph on a max length deal?

I know Zajac denied becoming the next captain, but he does have the locker of Zach (and Langs before him). Now that Trav is locked up, he makes a good case for captain.

Then again, lockers probably mean nothing and we should just be happy that we have a #1 Center for a long time

Yeah, what does that dipsh!t Lou know about anything? What a zilch he is. If only he scoured more message boards, he'd have a better handle on how to do his job.


If you don't think his routine of waiting until 7/1 to resign our own guys has cost us players....I don't know what to tell you.

A lot of big names get to UFA for many teams. It's not like it only happens to the Devils. It costs EVERYONE players.

Losing Parise stings, sure, but not at 13 years and $98 million it doesn't. Who else are you upset about the Devils losing through the years?

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.

Cue Triumph, who will give us some statistic based contrarian argument as to the merits of the deal. We should do a survey on whether it's an AMAZING or AWFUL deal.

Wow great for Zajac. If he can stay healthy this will be huge down the road. Maybe he will get a little league wide recognition now too.

they're just embarrassing themselves and at the same time saying Grabovski's a good deal for the same $. Even Wyshynski (a devils fan who didn't know Henrique killed penalties) says he didn't like it.

And it isn't like Lou tried many times to lock Zach up. The difference is Zach and his agents knew he'd get the world in free agency. Travis doesn't. And this deal is too good for Travis to pass up on, especially after he missed pretty much all of last season. This contract is more about the future than what Travis has done in the past imo.
