Lou is one of the best GMs of all time but he is also one of the worst at handling high profile young assets approaching free agency. He should have approached Niedermayer, Gomez, and maybe now Parise a couple years before free-agency and offered sign long-term or be traded. This team would be much better off right now with a plethora of young assets than losing these guys for nothing. I mean just in draft picks each one of those guys was worth 4 or 5 first round picks a couple years before they walked.

Assuming Parise and Brodeur sign elsewhere, the Devils still have to spend over $6 million just to reach the cap floor.

Don't be a jerk Lou. Zach is not coming back unless he's fine with taking a non front loaded deal or discount.
I'm not going to believe anything's wrong until I see an uh oh quote from Marty, or he actually does sign somewhere.

Agree he needs to stop being thick headed. It's a lost cause. If Parise wants absurd money let some other team give it to him.

Again not liking this at all.

Well if we split ways with Zach, we could be going after RW actually

Don't call Lou a Jerk if you don't know what he's doing or thinking.

Would you guys really want Parentau for that much now, come on. Just because NHL GM's are handing out Monopoly money doesn't mean we have to. Whitney getting two years, $9 million with a NMC is also silly.

Like I said man nothing will shock me more than the initial announcement he was going to UFA. It's like an anything goes anything can happen at this point.

But the free agent RW pool have far more mileage on them and aren't as attractive going forward. Doan, Jagr, etc.

I don't think it will affect the offers already made, just because the Avs overpaid for Parenteau.

Too bad then, because he was. Unless they put him with Duchene and Landeskog, he's not going to do that again.

Haha I don't know man. What do you think? Come to terms with letting Parise go? I think he's not coming unless he takes a discount or a non front loaded deal.

I'm glad Parenteau signed elsewhere... Now some of you can stop with the foolish obsession with this guy.

Its just that we're wasting time with Zach, before you know if Hudler, Semin, and everyone else will be signed and our #1 RW will be Clarkson or Zubrus cause we can't learn how to ****ing move on,

Our goalie situation next year

Hedberg (1.25)
Huet/Turco/Montoya some scrub like that.


This is NOT good.

What does that have to do with anything? I'm referring to the deal he signed with the Hawks being stupid. Yeah we gave him a stupid contract too and got out of it thanks to Waddell lol.

If we add another top forward, ex. Hudler, Semin, or Doan, does that give ZP more incentive to come back or less? Come back to a better team, or leave a team that is already replacing him?
