It is kind of going to suck to watch him play for another team. If he does leave.

He has to have a reason for waiting. Making Zach twist in the wind and take endless distracting questions about his new contract is not something to do lightly. Either he's still evaluating Parise's value after his return from injury, or he's working on a trade to prove to Parise that he's serious about winning, or he's gauging Parise's value on the trade market. Could be any of the above, or any combination of the above. Hard to say.

I can get over it as long as he doesn't end up across the Hudson, as a fan that would rip my heart out.

Keep the money/cap space and try to land a solid blueliner via a trade.
How about when Niedermayer left......Lou went out and signed washed up Dan McGillis and Malakhov, then had the balls to say "with these additions I feel we are a better "team" then were were last season" !!!!

He was probably blowing some smoke. That said I don't think Lou has ever made a move without feeling it made the team better, right or wrong. He cares to much.

Or he 'has' to wait because the money isn't there for an extension right now.

Or that. The point is we don't know, and we're driving ourselves nuts speculating.

The New Jersey Devils as a business have got to have a higher perceived $ value with Parise signed than without...

He's gone. Rangers are in need of a first line LW. He'll do well there.

Not sure if you're being sarcastic here, but if not, how much cap space do they have for next season?

Either way you dice it it's extremely frustrating as a fan.
Whoa whoa whoa, I don't think you can put Parise in the same league as Stevens and Brodeur in terms of their importance to this team.

That's probably the problem. Lou is familiar with greatness.

In terms of importance to date, no. In terms of potential importance if he stays, yes.

Like Niedermayer in a Ducks jersey. It's just not right.

This is exactly how I feel. Hell, I'll still even like and cheer him on pretty much any other team. But if puts on that blue sweater...

It would be an even bigger betrayal than Gomez. Gomez wasn't the captain.
