Well the devils were estimated to lose about 13M this year. Not sure they are going to want to lock up $$$$ on Parise when they already owe Kovalchuk 100M. Perhaps he takes a short term deal to stick around for a bit longer...but that's certainly a risk. What happens if he gets injured? Will Brodeur be back...and will he be good enough to win it all again? Zach be 28 this summer. This is the time for his big contract. Not to mention, the new CBA could change the rules on what future contracts can and can't offer. Certainly he could sign long term in Jersey...but I don't think it's better than 50/50. That's just my uneducated guess.
