Because it mattered to him?

First of all, these guys are friends. They care about eachother and it's not crazy to think they would get advice from eachother (or really, Zach from Marty).

Second, it's a business and I'm pretty sure whether the other player was thinking about returning played a major role in their own decisions...

Marty was 99% sure he was coming back, the deal was submitted last night. He had a pretty good idea.

It's a blue collar town. They would like the whole "hustle until you pass out" vibe Parise brings.

I follow very few hockey people on Twitter that I rely on

Gulitti and MacKenzie are among the few

Everyone spoke to Zach last night apparently.

I will be meeting up with him later to bat around the shuttlecock, and I'll be sure to report back here immediately.

****ing Kovalchuk and making us pay an extra few million.

He's the reason we're moving to Quebec.

I don't care how credible the tweet-maker is.
Plus he isn't the only one saying so. Strickland seems to have been the first one to state we are still in it. Also the one who said it was down to two teams not three so who the hell knows at this point. Maybe our involvement is a given because Zach always planned on giving Lou the last word and its just down to two teams not counting us?

Forget Parise. There's way better free agents next year. We'll be better off not crippling the franchise with a contract Parise will never live up to. I'd rather have give that contract to a game breaker.

He can do that to us all he likes, but to a teammate, someone he knows personally and professionally? I don't see him doing that. He'd be more forthcoming, or start hedging instead of doing the "Devils are still in it" thing. For Marty to be this confident, I feel Parise has to have said something very encouraging, but he could of course still change his mind.

I have no idea why everyone is following those tweeter rumours when 99% of all reports are based on speculation.

Parise is negotiating the biggest contract of his life, why would he, his agent or the teams he's talking to leak out valuable information is beyond crazy IMO.

Pretty sure it was over the weekend.

What's a teammat?


Is it something like a regular mat?

Andy Strickland once bashed Lou and the Devils for refusing to use the Reebok practice jerseys and sticking with the Center Ice version (as part of a larger argument that the organization operates under its own set of rules). Even if he has impeccable sources, he is far from classy.

Imagine how stupid TSN and the other "analysts" would look if Zach signs after predicting the demise of the franchise yesterday...and then Suter comes shortly after

Haha, if he resigns with us for anything close to the numbers that are floating around, it'll be funny to watch, once the euphoria and gif-parties pass, all the the doomsdayers lamenting about how the franchise is now crippled by a terrible contract.
