then he tried to ruin and sabotage our ECF championship against the rangers with all the comments about how zach loves playing for "TORTS"
If Zach leaves, JP Parise will surely join the pantheon of hated NJD parents, right along with Carlos Gomez and Carol Niedermayer.

Best revenge? A healthy, motivated #17 saying **** it, I'll do it myself and taking this team to the show again this year. Get another scorer and another secondary scorer and strap in.

Guys its not about the $. Its about his very loose relationship with Ryan Suter from when they were teenagers. But they are apparently secret BFFs

I don't...not for a 60 pt guy. Who HATES Northern Jersey BTW
There's no way Anaheim will ask for all of that. They want to cut payroll and are looking to add up and coming youth. If they want Henrique, we'll just hang up and leave them with a player that has had just about enough of being the scapegoat everytime rumours pop up regarding the Ducks.

The Ducks aren't going to get a stud like Henrique, Couturier, Schenn, etc IMO. They'll get a solid package of youth and one roster player. The only teams I can see throwing a stud the other way are teams that are in the basement and need to sacrifice a bluechip prospect currently playing in the NHL to bolster their lineup, giving them a shot at making the playoffs.

If I'm the manager of that team, I keep my kids and build threw the draft, not like what Howson did when acquiring Carter or signing average blueliners to all-star contracts (The Wizz comes to mind).

Is it a coincidence that you avoided Ronnie's post or you're just scared to reply to a mod the same way you reply to my posts.

We went to the cup finals, everyone's happy, now get over it. Are you going to talk about it for the entire summer? Every year, there's always a different team fighting for the cup so if you think we have the receipe to attend the big dance each and every year because we made it a month ago, then more power to you.

Our blueline played over it's head, especially Salvador with his career high production and we managed to play the way opponents played against us when getting knocked of the 1st round year, after year, after year. A heavy forecheck ment to we spent more time in their zone then in our zone and that was a big reason why we went to the finals. We'll play the same system, there's no way around that, but we might not have Parise and I'm convinced Salvador won't have the same type of production he had in our cup run, ever.

Teams tweek things, even after playing for the cup. The Canucks went to the cup last year and are considering moving their #1 netminder, they signed Garrisson, etc. Odds of us going to the cup weren't in our favour but we managed to beat those odds and that's fantastic news for us fans, the players, the organisation and the owners.

One thing you don't do is think you're unbeatable because you were 2 games away from lifting the cup. The approach Lou has with upcoming free agents, especially our core players, needs to change and that's my pov. If you like losing studs for free and having to scramble to replace their production, that's your pov.

No one is right here and no one is wrong. You don't need to act like a certain someone and throw stupid remarks in order to think you have the upper hand on a message board.

Again, I wish you would've had the balls to reply to Ronnie the way you replied to my post.

Don't forget Granlund, if he's as good as advertised they'll be wishing they're paying him instead of Zach.

I have my C on order to put on my Kovalchuk jersey asap.

The first few days were a great sign that Zach was going to return, these latest days scream price gauging to me.

If he signs in the Twin Cities, I cant wait to get my tickets against the Wild in November, if you think Gomez got booed, you have not heard anything yet.

JP will be on the top. C. Gomez was also Scott's agent at least. Carol, well she just loved Rob more and needed Scott to help him. lol

Don't blame him one bit if he goes, but I don't understand why it'd be the Wild. Not saying the Wild are going to be ****, but uh.............................................wel l you know Zach did a lot of good for us and so be it if he goes! Henrique to the rescue, Kovy back on LW.

That makes no sense.

If the Wild did not purposely leak what they would offer Zach in the first place, perhaps Lou might have been able to get something done before FA. We'll never really know now...

And if the Wild end up with Parise, you better damn believe that Tampering charges will be filed.

I think it would be hilarious if Suter trolled Zach and he was dealing with Lou the whole time. Zach announces Minny, and Suter comes to NJ for 7mil cap hit lol

Maybe he's giving more time for Lou to match whatever offer he's willing to take from another team

If Zach does leave for the Wild then you know that he will have known he wasn't coming back the whole time.
