I don't think you just walk away from Parise after four ****ing hours of free agency.

RT @ToddCordell: With the money that's being thrown at Parise by top teams, I'm really starting to think he's not going to re-sign in New Jersey.

For the money Zach wants, he isnt coming back

Chris Mason signs a one year, $1.25 million deal with Nashville. Basically Marty-Moose and Montoya are the only goalies left on the market of any consequence lol

We should go after Semin because he can be converted just like Kovalchuk was.

I'm confident Lou and Conte are working both the phones and the fax machines. I think they know Zach is long gone.

Honestly this is how I am feeling at this point:

We lose Zach... fine, we have an up and coming plethora of defensmen prospects, we survived without him (though missed the playoffs but not due to missing him). We lose Marty... it was gonna happen within the newt year or two anyway. It will be a slight annoyance, as he made it clear that he knew he was the second on the list and if he leaves cause we didnt have time for him it seems slightly childish. Regardless, it will be time for us to know if we have a goalie in our pipeline who can become our starter.

At the end of the day our success will not fall onto the shoulders of losing 1 or 2 players, but rather the make up of the team as a whole. Will we be considered cup contenders, no, but we werent considered that this past year and look how that turned out. My attention is shifting, not from losing players who are seemingly not wanting to be here anyway, but to our financial issues and the long term future of this team.

The writing is on the wall. With the money he wants it don't look like he's coming back unless he wants to be very generous.

Semin has made comments that he wants to be a complete player, for what's it's worth. It could be situation where he needs to get out of Washington.

If we spend anything significant it's to replace Zach not to lure him back. Sykora and Poni will be replaced with bargain deals / camp invites.

This blows.

But until I see OFFICIAL word that he has signed elsewhere, I will remain ever hopeful.

People won't wait a few hours or a day for Parise, you think they're gonna wait till July 9th for Doan to make a decision?

Maybe not purposely, but the fact remains that he's severely holding up our plans.

I wouldn't say that. We haven't heard anything from Parise and his agents. The only things we have heard from reliable sources suggest that a decision might not come until tomorrow. I'm sure Lou knows the situation better than we do.
