So, after former captain Zach Parise left for Minnesota on Wednesday, ending days of free-agent drama, Lamoriello, though disappointed, clearly took it in stride.

“There’s no question we’re disappointed. It’s a very unfortunate thing when you have a player of his stature that’s come right through the ranks and then, at this given time, a decision is made to go elsewhere,” Lamoriello said on a conference call.

“You just go forward.”
