I don't think Zach is signing with any team other than the Wild today when he's in Minnesota. If he was going to return to us it would be done yesterday or tomorrow. He's not announcing on the fourth of July in Minnesota he's going somewhere else.

Sign Weber next year

Oh no you didn't.

Take cover my friend, that's all I have to say atm. You'll be swormed with "Yeah, we should of moved him for shinny new toys and miss out on our cup run".

I fully agree with you and said so multiple times. If you take a look around the league, Gm's usually lock up their studs to multi year deals during the season or whenever, but they almost never lose a valuable asset for nothing.

With the UFA market getting weaker and weaker each and every year, we can't let our core guys test the market anymore. I understand Lou has his ways but the league has changed, the rules have changed, the game has changed... so one would think that Lou can change as well. Talking during the season doesn't bring any more distractions then having to answer the same ****ing question 365 days straight about testing free agency via the media.

You can have that approach when dealing with guys like Clarkson, Zubrus, Greene, etc. but not your heart and soul guy you decided to hand the captaincy to. On the other hand, maybe Parise did ******** everyone and refused to talk extension with Lou in order to see what he was really worth come july 1st whitout necessarily ruling out the Devils as a option to come back.

Anyways, losing stud players is something we've grown to see as NJD fans and we've managed to beat the odds of us sucking each and every time. It would sting like hell if we lost Parise but if we do, I hope Lou learns a lesson in all of this and actually considers talking contract extension during the season in order to avoid another fiasco next off season with our #1 center.

Not necessarily true.

His home is in Minny. It means nothing.

IF Zach leaves which it looks like he is along with his new bff , all I can say is good riddance ! No way on earth will those 2 lead Minnesota anywhere and as mentioned I don't see Suter being a force on defense when he will have no one else to help him out. Minnesota is still NOT a playoff team in the near future. New Jersey lived without Zach before and still can today and be a better team then the Wild will be. He can take this Lebron show and shove it as it looks more and more like this was planned long ago to do it on the 4th of July .

Once he puts on another jersey, my respect for him is gone and I hope when he plays the Devils , for starters he is healthy and not injured , that not only do we destroy Minnesota, but we make him invisible during the entire game and he hears it from the crowd

In comes DATW with his defeatism and idiotic remarks about how we never got to the cup finals and that it was a bad dream because it's refuted everything he's said for the past year. Then he gets proven wrong and ignores your post

So they can both be ridiculed when the team fails to succeed? Maybe it will be nice to have someone to commiserate with, but the only difference is that fans will be booing both.

And the Oilers want to keep him to mentor their kids coming up, so they'll value him higher than we want to pay, most likely.

We'll see. I don't even feel like hanging around anymore now that it seems like a fait accompli, but I have a perverse interest in seeing just how nutty these contract numbers are.

I mean splitting the expectation burden. Not all the attention will be on Zach the way it would if he came alone, some will be siphoned on Suter.

Captain UFA making his signing on July 4th. What could be more fitting then him chasing the american dream and taking the most $$$ too? Nothing

And I'm not a fan of letting players get to UFA at all. Lou's "time on our side use it motto" doesn't need to be applied to every situation. This is a time where I wish it didn't.

That's what worries me about him announcing it today. Hopefully he pulls the troll job on the entire state.

We're going to be bidding with Detroit for Semin. We'll lose that one too.

Devils are going to need to replace those goal and board work should he leave.

I don't think it can be done.

Couldn't agree more. He still handles contracts like it's 1997. The players have the advantage. His negoiating tactics are outdated.

I won't like him signing with another franchise any less than the next Devils fan, but jesus some of you are sore.

If he leaves, he leaves. The franchise has survived worse and we have that guy who wears #17.

This. If he announces today have to bet Minny.

No way in hell he surrounds himself with family and friends on a holiday and says 'not coming here'.

Especially with the emotional wreck he looks like right now. Seriously, he'd have a nervous breakdown if he did that.

Excellent post.
