Eh, I'm not up in arms about Parise leaving. He was a UFA and it's his right to go out on the market and see which teams he likes. It's not like he was an RFA holdout or requested a trade.
And this isn't even like Scott Gomez where he made up his mind and signed with the Devils' arch rival, the Rangers on July 1st for $$$. Parise definitely thought this through and I don't think it was an easy decision.
It is what it is in the end of it. This team has lost numerous important players to free agency and retirement. Some (like Niedermayer and Stevens) had more value than Zach to be honest. The Devils have always adapted and I'm sure they'll adapt and move on without Zach.
