Oh boy. This certainly should not come as a surprise to anybody since the day Zach Parise only resigned to a 1 year contract this summer. But The Fourth Period has reported that the Devils have been in talks to deal Zach Parise to Los Angeles for goaltender Jonathan Bernier and for either Dustin Brown, Jack Johnson or Dustin Penner. This would be a huge blockbuster deal for both clubs.
Personally I would like to see this deal happen because if the Devils could get Bernier and Brown for Parise and someone else, it would instantly make the Devils a bigger threat on offense along with providing youth in net. Bernier would be a great replacement for Brodeur. Also there is a huge chance that if the Devils don’t resign Parise to a long term deal during the season that he may not resign this summer. So if the Devils can profit off the the loss of Parise they should definitely make this deal happen.
This is a must read.
