in his interview he said he loves being here, and one huge bonus to his new deal was he gets to live in MN year round, he wants to be the hometown hero to take his local team to the cup. Parise is the face of the Wild, he has become the identity that everyone in Minneosota places on the Wild now. Koivu might be our captain, but Parise is the guy we associate with Wild now.
Thats a bonus????

All I'm seeing from Devils fans in this thread is sour grapes. Keep bringing up Risebrough's terrible draft record and badmouth our city and team if it makes you feel better.

Jersey doesn't exactly have a glowing reputation. Minnesota actually does once you get past the whole flyover thing.

Yes...especially if he plans on starting a family. Staying here year round beats having to pack up the wife and kids for two moves every year.

Also why are all the NJD fans complaining, you guys won't have to watch this traitorous terrible hockey player any more, you will have nothing to get angry as you watch your team. to me that would be a huge bonus.

They can still draft and develop prospects as well as attract top end talent as UFAs and haven't been an absolute coaching carosel over the last decade.

And I don't know what is hard to understand but when signing a contract for the NEXT 13 yes wouldn't a smart individual evaluate how a team is positioned for that time period rather than focusing on the PREVIOUS time period of '95-2003 when the Devils were so well positioned and winning.

Again2 40 yr old goalies with no heir apparent anywhere to be found...Elias also pushing 40 yes old and one of if not the worst and most shallow prospect pools as voted by every publication and then to top it off bankruptcy looming in the immediate future....try and spin it how you want but NJis not and will not be on solid footing for quite some time...a major rebuild has been long overdue.
1) NJ has always been a coaching carousel. We won 3 cups with 3 different coaches.

2)We may lack the overall depth in prospects, but we consistently churn out quality NHL players. We also get the absolute most out of our players. We also had Tedenby, Josefson, Henrique and Larsson graduate this past year.

3)Yes a major rebuild is long overdue, so overdue we skipped it and went back to the SC finals.



Why don't you worry about your team making the playoffs with your putrid defence instead of trying to re-write the Devils history to make them look worse than that ****hole of a franchise you cheer for?

Definitely not garbage but he was overrated by Devils fans a lot. He's not going to be that missed on that team.
