He has also played for the New Jersey Devils, where he served as team captain. Parise made his debut in the NHL at the start of the 2005–06 season.In his rookie year, Parise played in all but one game, totaling 14 goals and 18 assists for 32 points.We’ve got so many friends through the kids away from the rink, away from hockey. It is great, so that’s the hard part,” Parise said, when asked if he’d be willing to accept a trade. After all, he’ll be 35 when the season starts and will be still be paid that amount when he turns 40.That’s a tall order even if they only have to pay .77MM per season.Parise was chosen to play in the NHL Young Stars Game during the All-Star weekend, where he scored two goals and four assists and was named the game's MVP.Heading into the 2007–08 season, Parise and the Devils agreed to terms on a new, 4-year contract on August 1, 2007.“It's always a little rewarding to score,” Parise said.

First on the list, is whether Parise, who has a full no-movement clause, would be willing to accept a trade. I think this place would be absolute insanity if we won here. And if the club does that, would they be able to get a quality return even then?
While from Minneapolis and stating quite clearly that he loves it in Minnesota, the veteran also revealed that he’s concerned about the fact that the Wild seem to be looking toward a rebuild, something a veteran of 15 years isn’t likely to want to go through. I want to win here, and I do love everything away from the rink. Parise did post 28 goals last season and could prove to be a valuable asset to many teams, but would a team be willing to take on six more years of him and hand over a major asset or two as well?
“We’ll start getting a little more serious as the next week rolls along.” Albert Pujols homered in a seven-run eighth inning, Mike Trout became the youngest player to reach at least 275 home runs and 200 stolen bases and the Los Angeles Angels rallied for a 10-4 victory over the Boston Red Sox on Saturday night.
While the Minnesota Wild are hardly calling it a rebuilding project, it’s been quite obvious of late that they have been doing just that.
