Why is everyone REFUSING to believe ANY RUMOURS all the time saying that NOTHING leaks from Lou and that as long TG doesnt report it that it's bullsh!t. But once this "rumour" about that offer popped, everyone is willing to believe it without questions lol oh life haha

 

Because we are more inclined to believe something from one of our own who has been here a long time and has no reason to make it up then we are to believe @hockeyinsiderrrrr or @REALHOCKEYRUMERZ or whatever other know-nothing Twitter handle comes up with.

you don't have to believe it - just like you don't have to believe anything.

 

look - i'm no better than anyone else. but i'd like to think that being on this board since its inception and being part of the original crew going back 3 sites prior, and the fact that what little "inside" information i get is pretty credible allows me to say, "this is what i've been led to believe by a reliable source" and not have people think that source is the CAA security guard or some bullsh!t twitter account.

that rumour came from who? i NEVER saw any legit report of this or any report at all actually other than people mentioning it here and trust me i looked.

 

Its more like people are more inclined to believe what they want to believe than anything else.

Look, now it's a legit rumor:

 

TotallyRealHockyScoops  @totallyrealhockyscoops  2/25/2012

BREAKING: Parise turned down 7 yrs/ 50 mil from #Devils, will test free agency. #scoop #freeagent #insidernews

 

 

Is that really all it takes? If you'd prefer to believe something like that over a guy who has been on this site over a decade and has no reason to make things up, then fine. It's not like Sundstrom is here dropping "inside knowledge" from his "sources" every day. This is one of the very very few things Sundstrom has let leak out. Of course we would more likely believe him or something MSweet says than someone who is looking for Twitter attention.

I wish Marty would just shut his fat mouth already. I'm tired of listening to his whiny, me-first diatribes now. Im sure Lou also wont appreciate some of these comments. I'm just sick of him already.

What twitter source are you even talking about? 

 

All i said is that people here always shut down ANY rumours saying "as long TG is not reporting it im not buying! Nothing leaks from Lou" and those are because it's stuff that they don't want to believe. But when it's a rumour they want to believe then the TG approbation goes out the window.

 

Not saying it's bullsh!t what sundstrom is saying, i have my doubts but that's me, just pointing out the double standard on what some people want to believe is quite funny.

No, it's very simple.  People don't believe things leak out from Lou because they generally don't.  And there's no reason at all to believe Twitter people.  There is reason to believe sundstrom because he knows people and is not constantly spouting rumors - he's not starting threads about things he knows, or calling attention to it.

the one year deal was the devils, not zach. this is widely known. they didn't have the money at the time. parise was ready for a long term contract both of his last two contracts and the devils didn't do it.

 

 

 

I remember that being the speculation at the time but has that been confirmed anywhere within the organization? Just seems that if Parise was really going to sign long term, on two occasions, then he should have easily been signed when it was time. That's horrible asset management if true. He wanted to sign long term twice, and we balked (for whatever reasons)?

"confirmed" is kinda hard to pin down but anywhere you read at the time or after zach always said he was willing to go long term. lou has intimated without flat out saying that finances were the reason they didn't do it.

I always thought the finances played a role in not being able to give him so much money up front.  That seems to be consistent with Lou's comment that the Devils made him a competitive offer in June.

Otherwise, what I think you mentioned was that during the summer he was offered something like 7/49.

Marty didn't say that, and the article didn't say that. Just an editor trying to make a flashy headline for page clicks.

 

What Marty and the article says is that there was almost an attempt to try and get Suter to come to NJ. It probably never happened because Suter had no interest.

 

I guess it's this line that serves as confusing: "Brodeur's take was that Parise was very serious about returning, and that adding Suter, a free agent who'd played for Nashville, was a real possibility, too." But yeah it isn't a very professional lead in to a quote (in which Brodeur doesn't say that at all), so you are correct. But my original point was somewhat of a "This writer is full of sh!t" kind of thing.

Well...we heard over and over JP talking about how great it would be for his son to play for the Wild and come home. He pretty much told the entire world that.

 

Not even going to touch the wife thing because it seems that every trade demand or free agent signing with his new team as a wife or fiance behind it these days.

Yeah, JP was pretty vocal about wanting Zach in Minnesota. Then he would end it with something along the lines of "but it's Zach's decision and we'll see what he does..." and come right out saying he wants him in Minnesota again a week later.
