Brodeur criticizes Devils for failing to sign Parise

Former captain Zach Parise is set to return to the Prudential Center for the first time since signing a free agent deal with the Wild after the 2011-2012 season, Devils goalie Martin Brodeur had some pointed words about the club’s failure to sign Parise when they had the chance (Gulitti, March 20).

“We had plenty of chances, we had two years to talk to him and figure out something and we waited and waited and it was too late,” Brodeur said “When you know you have an athlete that is going to be a game breaker and he’s going to be one of the top players and the rules are free agency comes a lot younger than it used to, you have to make commitments. You see around the league some of the guys, the [Steven] Stamkos and etc., they don’t wait. They get them done. And we let him walk to free agency. That’s a decision of the organization, regardless of it was financial at the time with the ownership that we had, but he was our property for a long time and we lost him.”

As far as how the fans will react when Parise returns, Brodeur noted that the fans are “not pretty pleased” with Parise’s decision to leave, but thought the fact that Parise signed with his hometown team might have led to the fans being a bit more understanding.

Parise weighed in Thursday afternoon regarding whether he might have stayed with the Devils had their effort to retain him been stronger.

“That’s too hard to say,” Parise said. “I know Lou [Lamoriello] has his policies and his way of doing things. It’s not as if Lou waited until June 29 or 30 to pick up the phone. We had talked for a long time before then. We had talked even the summer before that. So, I don’t think it’s fair to say Lou waited until the last minute because that wasn’t the case.”
