With everything else going wrong this season that could (I mean literally. I can't think of a positive to take away from this season) the hockey gods might as well cap it off with a Rangers cup victory.
I think it's definitely a little ridiculous to have 14m sitting on the third line when the team lacks any real top-end talent. It's money sunk that would best be spent elsewhere..like on a 1st line player.
Of the Devils top-6 (and other scorers) this season..
Zajac: 2C on a good team
Jagr: 2W on a good team
Brunner: 3W (at best)
Clowe: 3W on a good team
Ryder: 3W, although I'd honestly argue he's less useful than that even
Zubrus: 3W at best
I mean..wow. That's a pretty bad forward roster. Jagr definitely overachieved this year which helped tremendously..unfortunately his contributions were kind of wiped out by Brunner and Ryder.
There's not a bona-fide first line player on this year's roster. Wasting so much money on bottom-6 players like you're suggesting would be foolish.
What a bunch of children. Yeah parise is going to be really hurt with these boos. As his team marches into the playoffs and ours gets closer to elimination. You fools. He was the definition of a class act every single day he played here. I hope he scores a hat trick tonight and then wins the cup just to rub it in your faces you unappreciative stubborn toddlers.
You feel better now with that little outburst off your chest?
Hope so, cause you're hearing boos ALL night. Get used to it.
If they took on at least half of that horrifically high contract, sure I would. Hard worker, 30 goal scorer. Sounds good. This season he's been a disaster, but he did protect the goalie's water bottle.
Not to mention, who else do we have?
You mean, 15 goal scorer.
That 30 goal season was the definition of a fluke, to expect him to do it again is just wishful thinking.
