I saw Devils fans boo Niedermayer at his first game, not the whole crowd obviously as well as Brian Gionta. Parise will get booed.

This strikes me as comical:

Rob Rossi ‏@RobRossi_Trib

Hearing Paul Martin also in touch with Parise on behalf of #pens #MinnesotaConnection

But I don't know if he and Parise are friends.

This will not be an easy decision for Zach if in fact the Devils aren't being limited due to the financial questions.

NJ is still in this. If thy weren't I'd suspect you would have likely already seen a couple of signings by Lou at this point. One being Marty and possibly some other UFA of ours.
That's what I thought when we re-signed Langs and Elias was still a UFA, I was paranoid Elias was gone cause we had no cap room. Of course we had to dump Malakhov's cap hit but we eventually were able to slot them both in.

It's more than just the fact he'd be leaving, probably to a division rival who'll become a close second behind the Rangers in terms of hatred...there's a bit of a personal betrayal involved. It'll be ugly, and three times a year at that if not more.

The comical part about that is they're trying to kick Martin out the door! I don't know what the **** they need Paul Martin for anyway when they have Crosby, Lemieux and the NHL on their side.

One word of advice: relax.
The latter.

I adore Marty unconditionally.

I'm being realistic. I don't understand the love for Parise here. Parise is invisible when it matters. This team will be fine without him. Kovalchuk can carry the team

Two weeks later, Paul Martin has been traded.

Perfect.

Martin can explain to Parise the pressures of being overpaid and constantly being nervous about being sent out of town.

Somewhere Rich Chere is beating the skin off his dick at the thought of writing an article about Parise and Brodeur leaving the nest.

He is the little guy with the incredible heart and motor and these valuable characteristics tend to draw in fans more than it should. But you're right, he never has been a superstar. And that's the type of money that is being thrown around. Short term the loss will hurt, but longterm it will be in the devils best interest to avoid this bidding war.
