Call me crazy, but I don't forgive either Ryan Suter or Zach Parise for what they did. In case you don't know, they both "took their talents" to Minnesota. I find it ridiculous in the big difference in views between the two sports (hockey and basketball).
I mean sure, the two aren't the best players in the league, but they are both extraordinary players, that teamed up, and made a "big three", so to speak, with talented skater Mikko Koivu.
It upsets me. Remember two years ago when people got on LeBron's case for teaming up with Bosh and Wade? S.S.D.D. Same ****, different day.
You may say it's because they both went to their hometown, while LeBron left his to win a championship. Both Suter and Parise did go back to their hometown and don't let them fool you. As much as they say they want to go back home, I call bull. They both signed matching 13 YEAR DEALS FOR $98 MILLION. Remember that time when Jayson Werth left Philadelphia so he can play for a horrific Washington Nationals team for $100 Million? He sold out, just like Suter and Parise.
How come people aren't making these "big threes" a big deal anymore? Stars recruiting stars. Deron Williams stays in Brooklyn instead of LEAVING FOR HIS HOMETOWN. Now Dwight Howard wants to go to Brooklyn. Steve Nash teams up with Kobe Bryant. It's ridiculous. You can't be mad at LeBron for teaming up when EVERYBODY else is doing it now.
Even Parise said in an article written on ESPN:
"I think at the end of the day, hopefully, with Ryan and I coming here, good players want to play with good players," Parise said Monday when he was introduced along with Suter at a press conference. "Hopefully that helps influence some people if they need some and we have a lot of friends around the league so hopefully that will help, too."
I disagree with the whole concept completely.
