So... We've been comparing Gaborik leaving the Wild with Parise leaving the Devils.

Here's a question: Would we have been more angry at Gaborik if he was our captain, AND we had just lost in the SCF during the 2008-2009 season?

I have a feeling we would have been just as angry - If not angrier. All that disappointment balled up with your captain leaving is bound to leave fans in a touchy (to say the least) emotional state.

Maybe it's just me but I don't think we need another thread because it will most likely lead to Devils fans posting again and Devils bashing which we really shouldn't do.

You know, we can talk about them in the offseason thread now.

OH MY GOD WE GOT PARISE AND SUTER!




Just because I didn't get a chance to do it again before the other thread was closed.

No seriously, this threads mere existence makes me so happy.

couple of heartless no talent bums. to think, we helped Jersey by taking Parise off their hands. without a doubt the most useless player on the Devils last year.

Zids is all character, heart, and grit. Such a steal. If the Devils don't re-sign him for $7m they're going to risk losing him.

Wild fans may still hate Gaborik, but Wild fans never really hated Rangers Fans.

Devils fans are acting like Wild fans are personally responsible for their crappy ownership issues that drove Parise to go to free agency.

If they really want to show Zids how much he means to the team, they should probably make him team captain too.

I was never angry at Gaborik i was Pissed at DR for the way he handled it. he approached Gaborik with a 7.5 AAV which was ALOT more at that time then its now cap wise. Gaborik turned it down yet DR knowing this guy has injury problems kept him on the team. to me Gaborik sent a message that he didn't want to play on the team with DR running it or JL coaching it. he should have been traded that off season.

him leaving per what russo said, was that he wanted that offer back but GMCF didn't oblige.

Again players have the right to choose where they play, its about the way you leave, Gabo made it known in advance he wasn't planning on staying when he turned that nice chunk of money down. Parise too sent a good message he would at least test free agency, he never went on some extensive record playing up the devils only to sign 11:15 with a direct rival. Players that want to stay (koivu) they sign the deal they don't take a 1 year deal making them a UFA

people who are angry that Parise left are ignoring that he took a 1 year deal that would allow him to test free agency, they though he would choose home and they were right, its just that their definition of home was New Jersey and Parise's was Minnesota

how did he lose?

also exactly what i'm saying we knew he wanted to test the FA market and Riser should have traded him, he also had a history of injuries so holding onto him was a risk which we lost.

Yeah Risebrough had something close to a 10 year, $100 million contract.

i was made aware that riser offered 7.5 million/year and thats what he got with the Rangers?

:salt:http://612sports.net/pros/wild/wild-latest-news/205 :salt:

so if this source is to be believed he turned down an 8M AAV with the Wild

I believe Riser offered 10 years $70-80m total and Gaborik turned it down summer before he got hurt (i.e. one year from UFA). Many of us wanted him traded ASAP at that point (I remember wanting something like 1st + Drew Stafford + roster player) because if he got injured it would tank his trade value.

Then he got injured and couldn't be traded. He had two surgeries. Gabby wanted the deal but it was off the table (rightly so). So he didn't come off IR (therefore couldn't be traded) until just after the deadline.

Riser was fired right after the season and Fletcher met with Gabby but it was pretty clear he didn't want to come back (and maybe Fletcher didn't want him back), so he walked for nothing.



I never blamed Gabby and always wished the best. Glad he went out East. It was DR's fault for not trading him that summer.

totally agree, Gaby did what he did but he gave the team ample warning he wanted to test FA, Riser screwed the chinchilla on that one

Riser offered Gaborik 10-years at $7.5 million/year. He got half that with the Rangers at 5-years at $7.5 million/year. His next contract he probably won't recieve another 5-year $7.5 million/year contract.

At the end of the day, he probably missed out on at least $10 million, maybe more depending on his next contract.
