I don't see any situation where Parise is not a Devil in the near future.
What are you basing that on? Does he have a wife and kids living in NJ? Does he even own a home in NJ? Does he like that the ownership situation in NJ is uncertain? Does he like that there's no consistency in the head coach? Does he like that the team plays a defensive style game that leaves little room for offensive creativity? Will the Devils pay him close to market value? Does he want to take a home team discount?

Seems to me that if you think about these questions you would be of the opinion the odds are at least decent he ends up somewhere other than NJ come next summer. I'm not saying definitely, or even likely...but I don't see how anyone can argue that they aren't possible or better.
