A contest to meet Zach and TG, and then *conveniently*, Zach won't show up or will end up in Toronto on an offer sheet. Then TG will take you for lunch and push you the bill.

Looks like it's a question and answer thing. Nothing important:

I understand why Lou may take Parise to arbitration due to possible offer-sheets, however, if he does go that way and a long-term contract isn't worked out, my understanding is that the Devils would not be able to trade Zach during the season.

Is that correct?

No, that's for players acquired or retained via an offer sheet. For example, SJ could not trade Niemi this season, and neither could the Blackhawks trade Hjalmarsson.

I'm pretty sure you can trade players right after their arbitration awards. I don't think it will ever get that far, however.

I don't either, but you like to keep has many opitions open as possible. I think Zach likes the young make-up of the team going forward and will be signed long-term.

I asked.....

Zach, of all the head coaches you have been through here in New Jersey, which one do you feel brought the best out of you, or you got the most out of?

I wonder how many people asked him if he's re-signing, and for how long. I would imagine quite a few.

I think most agents are reasonable - while some are very aggressive, most are risk-averse and when you are getting big money no matter what, they'll take the safe big money rather than risky potentially bigger money (unless the difference is very large).
Exactly. The Devils will no doubt offer Parise between $6 and $7 million in a multi-year deal. Is anyone else going to offer significantly more than that? I doubt it. Parise is a small player, he plays an aggressive, physical game. He just came off of a major injury. Unless his agent is a total commision-seaking ********* (see below), I think he will be advised to seek a long-term deal with NJ for his own benefit.

...Which means his agent most likely is seeking his client's best interests, not his own. I also highly doubt any shenanigans would be involved since Zach's dad has also been around the block a time or two, so to speak.

He'll be locked up in Jersey for a 3-5 year contract at a reasonable rate considering his skill level.

Does that apply to Niemi? He wasn't sheeted, he was taken to arbitration and the Hawks walked away.

Oh you're right. I forgot he wasn't sheeted. So no, it doesn't apply.

I'm sure whatever happens, it will be as long and excruciating as possible. Arbitration would be ridiculous, as Parise would only get a 1 year deal, right? Then he'd be unrestricted the next year and bail for another team. Lou will probably low-ball Zach until the last moment, then give him a reasonable, long-term offer.

Well, you know, I've heard that just living in big cities and playing for historic organizations is better than having the chance to win a Cup.

How do you think this affects our ability to re-sign Parise?

As long as we're allowed to take care, and spike our hair, I'll be a Devil, for life.
