Thanks Kovy. Love ya, bud.
That's awesome. They have no desire to lose another big free agent to us.

Big difference w/ Parise v. Richards. Richards not waiving his NTC to allow Dallas to get an asset for his rights last year was a real ****** move when he knew he wasn't coming back anyway.

I am a Devil season ticket holder. I am just stating the obvious. I really hope that Henrique, Jajo, Fayne and Larsson become stars in this league, but until that happens Pitt core looks better.

There`s the answer I was looking for.

Todd Cordell ‏@ToddCordell
IMO, signing in a place like Pittsburgh would be best for Parise in terms of $ & chance to win. If he re-signs in NJ, major respect for him.

Have to agree with this and I hope Zach will stay loyal.

Lockout protection could also be a low salary the first year. Less money lost. That may benefit us.

I'm not sure why things were seen differently in the first place

If you are, then you are the most pessimistic-sounding Devils fan of all-time.

Now it`s up to Zach whether he wants to take less and stay with his current team or choose a different path (DET or PIT, I don`t see any other team having a chance at getting him).
Both of those teams are loaded with stars Zach will get lost

For some reason, when I hear "Octomom" I don't think 8 kids, I first think of the chick from Total Recall, only, you know, 8 of them.

I can't help but laugh at the people calling today stressful.

Parise and Lou had two entire years to come up with a way for Parise to avoid being a UFA. Did you honestly believe that if he got to July 1 without a contract, that he was going to pick a team within 7 hours of getting his freedom?

I truly believe he wants to be here. I truly believe Lou wants him here. I truly believe that Parise is using all the tricks in the book to get his money (and rightfully so) and I do believe that Lou's patience will pay off.

If you think today is stressful, just wait until next year. Zajac, Elias, Zubrus, Clarkson, and presumably the 40 year old goaltenders hitting UFA all at once. Henrique, Josefson, and Tedenby hit RFA too.

Same here. Panic button was pushed way too many times for no reason.

So what you`re saying is that he has an ego and cares about the spotlight more than about winning?

Not sure I understand your reaction. I don`t think he takes that as a negative.

I hate Eklund. I think I'm gonna call it a day and *try* not to check again until tomorrow morning. My mind is already made up on this nonsense: I only want Parise to stay if he's being paid reasonably. Anything over $7.5M/yr cap hit and I wouldn't be happy.
