So what did I learn about the Devils over the weekend?

* That Zach Parise is going to be just fine. The Devils need to find a way to sign him yet not handcuff the organization from making other moves we need to make.

* That I am disappointed this current Flyers team isn't the team we faced last season. Last year, they owned us, this year, that storyline is very different.

* That I don't like having my playoff hopes squashed by two former NJ Devils.

* On this coming Sunday, approx 6pm, I will have to start rooting for a different team if the Stanley Cup Playoffs are going to be entertaining at all.
