Yes, what does QT mean lol... (hmm...quick tweet?)
but if we were to SOMEHOW get Parise...it seems likely that Voynov(another russian player for NJ) would be going the other way. They need a puck moving defenseman. Our 1st in the 2011 draft would likely be in there too. Im thinking...
Loktionov, Voynov, 1st in 2011, and something else... I was thinking Jones, but i doubt DL trades him with the way he's playing in the AHL...but it is Parise...
Barry reads the boards see's what some of you guys are talking about and then goes and posts about that exact same player lulz.
Good point. I wonder where hacksaw got it... could be from a few months old rumor.
I also think that if "someone" posts every conceivable trade available in the whole NHL eventually they're going to be "right." Right in that they wrote a name that turns out to be traded but not correct in that they had any prior knowledge.
As for Zach Parise. Guys a great player... no question about that. But he also has just had a major knee injury and I've yet to see when he's suppose to be back but more importantly when he can expect to play to his ability. It sure looked to me that this is a guy who isn't going to be 100% till next year at best.... So now what you're really talking about is working on next years team.
That's, of course, assuming that the Devils are crazy enough to trade him.
I suppose just for fun if the Devils wanted a full rebuild we'd be a good team to talk with. We're one of the few with a large amount of near NHL prospects but then the problem is that I like most of them! I'd want to keep Schenn, Loki, and VV. The rest I'd be fine with trading but I think if I'm the Devils I start with those three and likely try to keep adding. It would be tough to give up years of drafting development for a top line player who might have to sit out the rest of the year and doesn't have to resign with you to a long-term contract. He could just sign a one year and leave...
Barry's only sometimes right with injuries and contract extensions. He reads these boards then posts "trade rumors" that people on here were already talking about. He likes adding fuel to the fire and getting people worked up.

In his defense, injuries and contract extensions are sure things when rumors are rumors.
It's a million times easier to be right on a sure thing than on private discussions than don't come to fruition more often than they do.
DL could theoretically be having discussions for Parise but Uncle Lou either doesn't want to trade him or DL doesn't want to pay the price tag.
Barry would be right and we'd never now because the trade didn't happen.
Someone understands, Parise means much more to the Devils than he would to other teams. We have no captain this year(Kovalchuk and Elias have A's but no on wears the C) and players have been specifically saying he should be captain. He has been the team's MVP for 2 years straight and he is solid defensively. Not to mention he started his career here and the fanbase would be devastated if he was moved.
You doubt the validity of great insiders such as Eklund, Matthew Barry, and Hacksaw Hamilton?
SHOW ME YOUR LIGHTENING BOLT!
Well........... do we really need these clowns ????
These guys are just making money of entertaining the hockey fans and we should
be smarter than that.
In reality we missed our top winger in Gaborik, Kovalchuk or Heatley.
The damage is done and we have to pay this and next year for that.
The chances to fetch these guys without giving up the bank are really slim
and i can't see anyone available soon and the UFA market is done after Semin and Moulson are signed.
It's not a Hollywood movie... there isn't help coming in the last second to save our lives.
We should stay with what we have and change the coach.
A real hockey system would work wonders and i don't see any reason why we shouldn't reach the playoff again
Maybe Parise wants out of a potentially unstable Situation (pun intended) in NJ? Maybe the Russian billionaire has told NJ owner that he wants some more russians or different players on his team? Plus a goalie to be mentored by Brodeur ? Quick is an east coast guy and is very hot right now. So Quick and choice of Loki / Voynov? Maybe a pick, too?
