I think that can be safely assumed. Lou isn't exactly shopping Parise around.

The Devils are not rebuilding. This year is an aberration, not the beginning of a trend. I expect them to contend next season, and you can bet your ass Lou does too.

They have ample room to sign Parise, they have a top five pick in this year's draft and most of their really bad contracts are off the books at the end of next year.

Kovalchuk's contract is bad but he can't possibly continue to be this ineffective, and it's hard to believe they'll have a second consecutive year with this many injuries.

They'll be a better team next year and they should be back to a perennial playoff team the year after that.
Excellent analysis, I agree with every word.

No, this could not happen. Lou is no chump, regardless of how "magical" Gillis is.
