I like Parise, but I put my faith in Kovalchuk in the next decade. I would love for Parise to come for the ride, but he's done terrible in the post season and showed no signs of resigning. Until then, I can't completely jump on his wagon.
He has said repeatedly that he would be open to talk contract but that the Devils have yet to approach him.
So.... Marty was only good because he had an amazing defense and system.
See, he won Vezinas after all those amazing defensmen left but that's only because he played so many games. You see, he played a lot of games with a less talented team and won a Vezina... product of the system.. See??
Kinda feels like 1995 again because we have a lot of young new players.
Dude weren't you 2 in 95? Not that I'd know how 95 felt either.
Me neither .. I was 6
Ugh, you people.... you're making me feel so old.... I was in my early twenties.
LOL, I was a sophomore in high school in '95... I feel old too with all these young'ins.
I was a freshman surrounded by Ranger fans. Too bad school was out by the time the finals were over.
Unfortunatley, I was surrounded by a lot of Ranger fans at my school too. One of them, who was a good friend at the time, busted my balls mercilessly for '94. So the night we won the Cup, I called him to give it right back... he hung up on me. I immediately called back. He hung up on me again. I smiled a wide smile and proceded to party all night. Ah, the great memories of the '95 Cup.
Yeah, man. The taunting after 1994 was so harsh. That's why 95 will always be my favorite Cup. It was the culmination of a slow build that started with Johnny Mac in Chicago in '88 and included 2 Game 7 losses to the Rangers. Only thing sweeter would have been beating the Rangers on the way to the finals.
On a side note, if Shanny signs and chooses 11, do you think Rolston goes back to #14 and Zubrus back to #16?
Plus idk if Lou would allow all that number switching but it seems likely that he will at least change Shannys, seeing as Brylin is back in some sort of manner with the organization and wants to keep it nice there keeping the #18 vacant.
My guess is Bergfors or Shanny will wear 18, Rolston sticks with 12, Zubrus sticks with 8. Rolston wore 12 his whole time in Minny, and Zubes doesn't really care about the numbers. I see Pikkarainen as 14.
