As happy as Zach Parise has been playing for the Minnesota Wild since leaving the Devils two summers ago - and it appears he's loving life playing close to home - there's so much he misses about his first NHL stop.
His misses his old teammates.
His misses his old fans.
His misses being in a place where he grew up on and off the ice playing for a super strict Hall of Fame boss, Devils GM Lou Lamoriello.
"Lou runs a really tight ship there," Parise told reporters. "People have heard the stories — no facial hair, no taping over the stripes on your socks, no jerseys tucked. There's a lot of things.
"It's all about being a team and not one person sticking out in front of anybody else. They really teach you about being a good teammate and being a professional. Everything is first class. They do a good job, when you're a young player especially, [teaching you] what it takes to play in the league and how to be a pro."
