Rich Chere at the Newark Star-Ledger reports that Devils GM Lou Lamoriello has spoken to Zach Parise’s agents regarding a new contract, but most expect New Jersey’s captain to test the market as an unrestricted free agent this summer.
Chere adds that the Rangers are a “definite possibility” for landing Parise and that, for the Devils, losing thier captain to the Blueshirts would be worse than the Holik, Driver and Gomez defections combined.
…ummm, Rich I think those defections were much worse for the Rangers.
…as far as Parise goes, I would love to get him on the team. A hard working, American player, who loves to win. Where do I sign? I think he’d fit perfectly into Torts’ system. Plus Sather wouldn’t have to give up personnel to get him which he’d have to do with a Nash trade.
