Wow, that's surprising, he was tearing it up the first couple games of the season.

Parise is a solid player but he can't carry the load on his own. His great work ethic usually get's him ranked alot higher then he's really worth and we've seen how easy it is to neutralise him during the post season when the game is played much more tighter.

He's a fantastic #1B type of player but will never reach the level of a true superstar IMO.

"So you left a team that just lost in Game 6 of the SCF, to go to a team that will struggle to squeak into the playoffs? But you're all about winning? Wait, what?? "

God speed, Zachy boy!

Everyone with a brain can tell he chased the money, but he will play the "going back home" card until he dies.

My buddy didn't, him and some other guy at the game on Sunday just would not accept that it was money and bought the "going home" crap. I keep trying to say if Detroit offered him and Suter that same contract he would be in Detroit, or any west team (since Suter didn't want to come east)

I don't think Suter even had anything to do with it

If Suter signed elsewhere, Parise would have still taken the largest deal on the table in Minnesota.

And despite the crap he fed us, I can confirm that we were absolutely not in it until the end. More lip service and saving face...

You think that was lip service too? I can believe it.

Gagne back to the Flyers? Well scratch that one off our trade list, though ok with that. Don't think he has much left.

There was about a 20+ million dollar difference. Parise was going to the Wild no matter what.

I really am tired of talking about Parise, but I stated on the board I thought he was gonna chase the money. I wasn't a troll about it like Muttley, but I said he was gonna chase the money. I was also lambasted by most of the board for it. Hear me now, believe me later.

LA gets a 3rd for Gagne if Philly makes the playoffs, otherwise it's a 4th.

The Flyers were listed at literally $0 in cap space a few days ago. How do they add 3.5 million in salary?

He could, but with how thin our draft picks are I don't know if I like a 3rd for Gagne.

Gagne is nothing like he used to be. He'll probably get hurt before Philly misses the playoffs.

He most definitely could. Though I'd have to think that he might be able to find something better for a 3rd.
