‏Zach Parise has agreed to terms with the Minnesota Wild

Recommended Posts

Yeah here's another question for Captain Cocksucker: if winning was SO important to you, and your best bud didnt want to come to the east, how come you didn't take less money to both go to Detroit? What's the matter? Couldn't deal with the pressure to win in Detroit? Or were you and your little friend afraid Detroit would be moved to the east after re-alignment, and you'd have to face the Devils 4 times a year? :rolleyes:

The Minnesota Wild have already made desktop wallpapers of the two new stars:

I'm not ready to make fun of him yet. I know I'm kinda gay but its just too soon, for me anyway.

Let's how Henrique doesnt pull this sh!t with oilers

We don't have to worry about that. Nobody wants to live in Edmonton. But isn't Henrique from Ontario?

Tough one to answer. Could be because he's not from Detroit. But I bet it's because he can't handle the pressure.

That's the problem, there aren't any solid wingers left other than Semin or the guys you'd have to give up an arm and a leg to trade for unless you want to hope Doan shakes loose and then overpay for him. It was a thin crop of wingers this year.

I'm fine waiting for the deadline. They've won riding Elias and Kovy without Zach. They can do it again for awhile. Usually the deadline's more of a buyer's market, especially considering what a seller's market we have now. We have a lot of dmen, and more d prospects. I'm fine with trading one of them to a team thin on the blueline.

See, I get the emotion, but posts like this are why I have counter arguments or maybe should take a break from the thread or the boards for a bit. MadDog2020, you know Zach's #1 priority in this was to go home to Minny. This was quite clear. It was going home or back to NJ. That's why he said no to Pittsburgh, Philly and Detroit. And you'd be 500x more angry if he went to any of those three teams.

At least you get the emotion. Rainman just continues to fire off cute little one-liners.

We don't know about Detroit though. Reports were that Sutter wanted to go to Detroit but they didn't want to overpay Parise. Minnesota said come here guys and we'll be cute and give you guys the same exact contract. Sounds like it was all about the $$$ there, it just happened to be that his home town wanted to spend the most $$$.

because from what's being said out there, Suter never wanted to come to the east. Suter wanted to go to Detroit but they didn't want to pay Parise as much so then Parise talked Minnesota into getting Suter too. Pleaseeee can we have the same contracts? I think Parise bullsh!ted us all year long and its way more obvious now.

The more thats coming out the more Im convinced its the NHL version of LeBron, Wade, and Bosh in a circle jerk leading up to today.

Guess Zach wants to watch the Cup Finals on TV, and not play in them anymore... Still love him as a player, but lost some respect for him today...

I'm not in on the hating Zach parade (though I understand the need to vent), but I absolutely love the Photoshop possibilities with Zach and Suter. The Wham! album was a great start.

To the more PS-gifted posters of NJDevs, get to it! Please :cheers:

Parise said he was going to Minnesota or staying in New Jersey, and that's pretty much what Lou said as well. Could money have been the factor? Sure, but I doubt it.

MD2020: I understand the emotion too, it's a sh!tty day, but I don't understand being upset at Parise or calling him all kinds of names, or most hilariously, being upset that he went to Minnesota and not, say, the Rangers?

And that's what I was getting at with that question. You wanna win and play with your freind? Take less money and go to Detroit and stop telling everyone that money doesn't matter.

Well at least that's the only thing he didn't lie about but then again, Sutter didn't want to come East so that wasn't really hard for him to say no to the Rangers.

I think this is a great day for the Devils simply because it forces them to move on in an appropriate direction, spending that kind of money and length for Parise would not be smart.

As great as Parise is, I don't think the deal makes the Wild contenders, also with all the nonsense of wanting to play with Suter and planning out this endeavor makes me question his maturity.

The reason why I'm upset as I am is because of the WAY this went down Tri. That's why. As I've said- if you didn't want to stay, don't give us all a "we", "us", "don't worry" dog and pony show, and just do what Gomez did and speak in vague tones. It seemed to me this was pre-meditated by Zach's comments. So I'm upset because of that- not neccassarily because he left in the first place (and believe me, I realize it could be worse and they both could've gone to Philly or Pittsburgh). I wanted to believe Zach actually cared about this franchise. I was wrong. I guess that's on me, but I'm not alone in thinking that. So I feel like we were all taken for a ride. And that's what bothers me most about the way he handled this. It wasn't at all sincere, as much as he wants us to think it was.

But you assume that because he left, he didn't want to stay. What if Zach both wanted to stay, and wanted to pursue this new opportunity? I don't know why leaving via FA always has to be a middle finger. People like Gomez and Holik wanted out. I don't think Paul Martin had much interest in staying. I mean, if you believe Lou, it was down to the Devils and Minnesota, and he picked home. Maybe he's not to be believed in this case, but I don't think leaving was particularly easy for Zach, and I'm not sure he knew he was going to do it until he did.

Yeah even Gomez as much of a c*ckbag as he was, wasn't phony about being a merc. Fact is he would have been irrelevant the minute he walked out the door if he went to LA, it's mainly cause he went to the Rangers (and wasn't popular to begin with) that he got all the crap he did. Zach deserves every bit as much crap as Gomez did, while he didn't go to the Rangers he was so disingenuous to everyone including his own teammates and GM that it's mind-boggling.

Hows this for a gem from the past...

http://www.nj.com/devils/index.ssf/2010/03/booing_of_devils_power_play_an.html

Fixed it for ya SH:

"I got booed every time I touched the puck. I think it’s very unreasonable. It's not like I left for the Rangers or Philly. I know I lied to everyone for a whole year and conspired with Ryan to leave, but I wanted to go home and play with my friend and be near my overbearing father, and I took more money to do so. I don't know why they hate me so much".
