- Good riddance. (NJDF)
- Here comes the devils analfury! wondering what he's getting paid lol
- 13 years for a potentially declining 2nd-tier scorer. Going to turn a franchise around? No chance.
- "Dont worry, lou will get it done."
- Awesome! Minnesota fans deserve it.
- Before Minnesota fan gets all excited, please remember that big UFA offseasons for teams has led to the cup exactly zero times.
- guess zajac will be bolting to minny after next season. hard to be upset at a guy like zach. but screw you dude, lebron of the nhl.
- Meh he's not a goal scorer. Wanted him back, but he's not worth Crosby money. Great hockey sense and work ethic. Average shot. (NJDF)
- 100 mil for Parise is a joke, in 3-5 years they will have buyers regret. He is very overrated.
- People are really reaching if they think this is Kovalchuk's fault lol (NJDF)
- There are a lot of angry people in this thread. Ironically, people from Minnesota are just about the nicest people on the planet.
- I dont think hes a traitor. i just dont dont think he gives a damn bout winning. the wild arent even a top 16 team. (NJDF)
- How is he a traitor? Wow. Y'all are going to throw him under the bus now? Just like that? It's not like he signed with an Atlantic team.
- Hope he winds up sucking.. Screw you Zach! (NJDF)
- I understand Devils fans are upset, but come on, the guy went home and didn't go to an Atlantic Division rival. Stop acting like he's a scum traitor.
- I enjoy rolling in those dollars at the golf course every May, Zach. You'll never win anything. (NJDF)
- Best tweet of the day: @9modano : Can I come back and play in Minnesota too..? #northstars
- If the Wild would drop Heatley I'd pull for this team. But until that happens, I won't. Congrats on Parise and Suter, though.
- Mark the date: Sunday, Nov. 11. Minnesota Wild vs. Devils at Prudential Center.
- damn, sucks to lose the captain through free agency. (NJDF)
- Devils will likely get compensation because of tampering. Keep an eye on Twitter. That prospect pool in Minnesota is about to lose some water..(NJDF)
Some gems from Fire & Ice:
- Screw him, screw his girlfriend.
- I hope he sucks for the next 13 years
- I wish he never wins the cup… 1 year captain and he really is ungrateful… At least we can focus on the future without being tied down with this contract, we’ll do fine without him, I just hope our players don’t take this as too big a blow and realize that
- Hey Zach you’ll be a Stanley Cup Champion in no time!....... Oh wait, right you signed with the Wild… Yikes… Well at least your bitch is happy
- If winning is sooooo important why did he go to Minny? He thinks that him and Suter will turn them around??? He was chasing money and made his bitchy soon to be wife happy and left us and the Devils in the ****hole! On November 11th I say we start a “Parise Sucks” chant and boo him every time! Hope you never win a cup pussy
- Please stop all the crying, he did what he wanted to do…it’s his life..someone WILL step up and take his place…Personally, I don’t think he was that great anyway!!!!!!
- Think it is pathetic that it was Suter who made the decision for him….decide for yourself…they are like high school girls. What about Zach’s friends in NJ? Guess it is a big F$&k you to them….I won’t congratulate him and I won’t wish him well…the way he strung the Devils along leaves a bad taste in my mouth…..I wouldn’t want him anyway knowing that we were his second choice…good riddance
- This sucks now because he turned out to be a lying turncoat but it’s a blessing in disguise. He is not worth that kind of contract. We’ll be fine without him. They should have a Parisi Jersey Burning Bonfire Night at the Rock. Maybe Nov 11.
- He is going to be one of the greatest American players in the history of Hockey. We were so lucky to watch him play for these last few years and to have had a play of his caliber and tenacity on our team.
It is devastating as a fan for me to see him leave. I hope we can all respect his decision no matter how much it disappoints us. I’m very angry and sad but there’s nothing we can do and I don’t dislike him as a player or person.
He’s a great player, and good person, and I wish he was still a Devil.
- We probably couldn’t afford him with the Dumbass Kovalchuk contract and him earning $11+ million in the next few seasons.
- Bunch of fair weather fans on here!!! Guy gave his all for 7 years. Left everything on the ice. Brought us to cup finals. And u guys want to crush him for leaving??! Why? Because its the city where he already has a house? Because he was given a huge contract? Because he now gets to play in front of sold out crowds compared to 60-70% filled at the Rock?? Because Minn w him and Suter are a VERY good team now. Any one of us, in his situation, would have done the same thing!! Good luck zach. And thanks for the memories! - a realistic fan.
- Good riddance, Captain Coward. It’s amazing how his army of fanboys is still defending him.
“I want to play for a winner.”
“It isn’t just about the money.”
“I love playing in NJ.”
“I can’t wait to see what happens in NJ next year.”
He kept us on the hook with all this double talk and made us look like fools and STILL people are defending the good ol’ boy?
I would have had more respect for him if he went to the Pens. Enjoy winning nothing in Minnesota, Captain Liar! I hope “Yoko” gives him crabs.
Kovalchuk will be a better captain than Parise ever was. Kovy 2012!
And I think Semin would do well on a team with someone like Kovy to keep him disciplined.
- Zach is a real piece of ****. Not because he signed with another team but because of his fake act at the end of the season. Even if in the way back of your mind you think you might sign somewhere else then dont say all this bull**** like “I love New Jersey” and “I’d like to remain a Devil” The way he handled this shows alot about his character…we are better off without him. Im out 2 jerseys a poster and an autographed picture.
- We got LEBRONED!
- Lebron Parise is a lying piece of S H I T
I put a hex on you…may you never make the SCF’s again. May you blow out your knee permanently. May your wife take you for every penny when you get divorced. May your daddy make your life hell with all his blabbing to the media.
- I guess Saint ZACH wasn’t a SAINT after all
he bull****ted everyone, and i mean everyone. from the fans to martin brodeur!
