Once you live a live like he has, it's nearly impossible to break free from it. It's sad and I wish him the best. He's a Detroit sports icon and I hope all these psychos leave him alone so he can continue rebuilding his life.
So does anyone think in their right kind that if/when the Devils win the Choice that Parise is going anywhere? he's been absolutely huge for them in the playoffs. I know they're having financial issues but they would need to do whatever they needed to in order to retain their captain and best player alongside Kovalchuk
I worry about this, too. He wanted to leave to go to a contender. Now the Devils are a contender. The Rangers, goons or not, need to take them out.
Someone mentioned Hudler?They like him in Ottawa it seems.
I'd like to keep Hudler if possible. He DOES score, even if he's not a difference maker. And since our problem is lack of scoring depth, I'd rather keep him and just plug him back on the 3rd line where he's had most of his success.
I'm all for it. These are pretty low-risk propositions. Brunnstrom could have been amazing, but he wasn't, so we dumped him in the AHL. Especially since he's a shooter, go for it, just don't hinge the success of the team on him.
He looks amazing, but then again, everyone does in highlight clips. And those defensemen looked pretty terrible, too. But if his first instinct is to shoot, we need him.
Well...some respect has to go out to the second wave of teams like the Flyers, Blues and Sabres...but I hope this doesn't become a marketing gimmick. The Original 6 is elite and WAY older than the extra teams that make up the "Original 12."
