I believe in Andy Strickland. His source is Cam Janssen.

It's just a matter of them announcing it from now on.
If that's the case, why would Marty say what he said an hour ago?

This guy should not be counted on as being credible. Not saying the Devils still aren't in it, but don't look at this guys opinion as credible.. he's a joke.

You know how Lou feels about his franchise boys. If he can keep Zach at an $8M cap hit, I think he will.

GOOD. Whomever that moron was that said to "derp...derp...look away devils fans....derp" can suck a big fat one.


Devils are still in this 'till the bitter end. And I pray it's not real bitter.

True, again.

I don't see them letting go of both guys and trying to move Ryan might be the reason why they want young and cheap talent for his services, in order to save some money for their two top guns.

Was just saying that if Bobby Ryan is really on the market, I'd like for Lou to pick up the phone cause players with his skillset aren't made available all that often and after losing Parise, it would be a solid consolation prize... if the price isn't too insane.

Parise would be a god in Philly given the way he plays. The fans would love him.

Ya seems like something Marty would keep to himself if he heard, knew or thought otherwise even if the conversation was yesterday.

He can speak, but why would Marty ask Zach if he is coming back to NJ, if Marty himself wasnt sure

Parise and Giroux on the same line would be filthy.

Good thing Giroux will be a Devil in 3 years

I don't buy any of these "sources." It's probably just Zach's agents keeping the frenzy going to drive the price up. But I'm ready for this nonesense to be over. I won't be heartbroken.

But it will kill one of my game-watching traditions: Sometime during the first period of the game I'll yell at the TV: "Zach, do something for ONCE!". I can't remember how it started, but I do it mainly to annoy my wife, since she really likes the guy (don't all women??).

Marty's comments make me think he was sure he was coming back and was just playing some hardball with Lou for that 2nd year.

It's easier to believe around here that Zach is giving NJ EVERY OPPORTUNITY to give him a number he and they can agree with than him just up and going to your team.

I don't care how credible the tweet-maker is.
