And just because Kovy got huge contract doesn't mean Parise gets the same. Look at the Richards and then the Carter signing after the Flyers signed Briere. They both took home discounts despite the fact Briere got a huge contract.

In the unlikely even he demands a ridiculous amount of money or a $100 million dollar contract, then he is an RFA not a UFA and devils would earn 4 first round picks.

Who said he'll sign an offer sheet? He hired an agent, who will probably have him file for arbitration this summer. Lou will be forced to tear Zach down in the hearing to save what he can and.... well we'll just have to see
