So allow me to recap:

DEVILS

+Competitive
+Captain
+Loves his team mates
+Competitive offer
+Tradition of winning

-Unable to front load contract for an immediate pay day
-Financial instability


PENGUINS

+Competitive
+Gets to play with the worlds two best hockey players
+Big contract offer
+Recent Cup Champion

-Feels like he'd be betraying his former team by signing with a rival
-More pressure to perform
-Won't ever be 'the guy'


WILD

+'Holy ****' caliber offer
+Should be competitive in the future
+Home town
+Has an opportunity to be 'the guy'
-Owns a house

-Not competitive at the moment
-No tradition of winning

Marty's full quote on Zach.

Zach is in a great situation for himself to have teams bidding like that, Brodeur said. I did it to a different level for a few hours and it plays games in your mind a lot. So, Im sure hell make the right decision for him and his family. Hes getting married and all that, so its a big summer for him, but I think the Devils went to the forefront with him and Im pretty positive that hell come back to us, but well see.

I'm convinced these rumors come from interns who fetch some bottled water and cups of coffee and overhear something. It's like the old game of telephone or the grape vine scene in Johnny Dangerously.

at this point I don't care about the cap hit. its not going to be something ridiculous like $10 million/per

if Lou (and ownership) feels that they can afford him, then do it.

Marty knew he was always likely to come back. He never seriously considered most of the other offers. Parise definitely knows that.

Well think about it. If ZP signs, we are set for next season. If he doesn't sign, we will never hear the end of our financial problems, we lost our captain and best player (or IK, debatable), have two 40 y/o goalies, and so on...

Honestly which ever piece of paper ZP decides to write his name on will dictate us having an awesome summer/beginning of season or setting up for absolute HELL. We think every TV Network and journalist hates us now... just wait.

So you run the franchise into the ground by giving out horrible contracts to players that aren't worth it? Sounds like the rangers. You give out contracts like these to superstars.

Quoted for everyone bringing up these hack Twitter claims. Marty talked to him and has a better vibe on the situation than anyone.

I assume at lease some Devils players are invited to the wedding. Might be a bit...awkward if he bolts.
