I never said it was smart. I just remember hearing at the time that Panarin getting paid a year or 2 down the road was a factor.

 

EDIT:

Found a video where Weekes and Hradek mention it.

I never go by third-hand info like that.

Pass on Parise...not because of the past.  Because he's going to be 37 years old

sh!t, does time ever fly. I knew he was in his 30's but didn't realize how deep lol.

I can't imagine many teams been interested with Parise. He was healthy scratched or playing on the 4th line not for cap reasons. But obviously Lou will get him, let's not even pretend like it's not going to happen. And obviously Zach would be dumb not to go at this point, no matter if he was sour with lou or not in the past

No one was interested in Parise at his old salary and remaining term, but if teams can get him on a one-year $1-2 million deal, I can see teams kicking the tires...a team like the Lightning might say screw it, what the hell, as he won't cost much.  I still wouldn't want him.

On another note, re:  the Wild, as bad as it looks having to kill two big contracts with four seasons left, sadly that was their best option at this point.  Those guys were untradeable with the cap hits that were left on their contracts ($7,538,462 each).  And the Wild could either continue to pay a lot to two players who no longer fit into their plans (and were no longer wanted), or free up some space.  What sucks for them is though the Wild were able to open up about $10 million for 2021-22 with these buyouts, there's not that much relief over the three seasons following 2022:  about $2.3 million total in 2022-23, and only $333,336 in new space for 2023-24 and 2024-25 (each season).   And then four years of $1,666,666 in pure dead space.

Also nice to point out that in their 9 seasons there they never went further than the 2nd round and only 2 series wins the entire time. 

And that's always the killer with these deals...if the Wild win just one Cup (or even get to a couple of SCF), fans can deal with buyouts or decline years later.  Two series wins in all that time...fair or unfair, that makes the Parise and Suter Era a failure.

Not like he looks old old (he's always had one of those "young" faces, kinda boyish), but you can see that he's aged.  He looks like a guy who's now well into his 30s. 

And yeah it's hard to believe that he's been gone as long as he has.  And that his career is just about finished.

I don't think I have looked directly at him since he left so to me he still looks like he's 16 lol.

lol imagine signing them both for cheap

and play-off apparence with them. 

If we will not trade\expose Johnsson - there are no need in Parise even for cheap. Anyway I think he will go to the Islanders. And I think Suter will sign with contender too.

After that, everyone will hate Lightning even more.
But I don't think he will get there. If only McDonagh goes to Seattle.

McDonagh has a NTC, do you think he'll waive it?

His trophy case might be getting full, we don’t know what kinda home he lives in

Could be. Maybe he hates sunshine and wants to pay State taxes while not being a Champion.

Could definitely see that. And Parise to the Islanders is a slam dunk.

I'm wondering if Parise nixed the deal w/ the Isles last year. If that's the case, Lou may not give 2rd chances. Lou "That ship has sailed" 

Also, Parise might just retire.  He's got sh>loads of $$.

Not sure what you're basing this on lol

The reason Parise left is literally the opposite of them "scheming for months"

Rumor was Parise was colluding with Super to go to the Wild during the 11-12 season. Remember him telling fans to "not worry" about him re-signing with the Devil's? fvcking liar

A la Gomez: "Meet me in Newark!"

Parise’s was worse. Gomez was obviously just a marketing thing done by the team. Parise loudly announced to a crowd of 500 devils fans who gathered to cheer on the team after their SCF loss “don’t worry, I’m back.”
