I like Kovy better, but I think Parise is a great player, too.

Kovalchuk pretty easily. Better player and better contract.

As other people said, Kovy's the better player and has the lower cap hit. He also seems more likely to age well. It's really an easy decision.

A Devils fan making a poll in an effort to make himself feel better about losing Zach, how amusing.

Zach is missed, no doubt about it since he's a great player... But with the deal he got, we are actually happy Lou didn't match that offer cause when he'll start to slow down, his production will dip hardcore since 90% of his game is all about hard work and not "natural skill".

Minnesota wanted to make a splash last offseason and they did... They just might regret it midway threw that term.

This is the same guy who baits Devils fans, then brilliantly combats our points by saying we're "********". Wouldn't take him too seriously as I have not seen an intelligent reply yet
