It's not as if someone ever thought about the implementation of SimpleDateFormat (I believe it was once sponsored by IBM). But the TryParse construct is not really common in the Java world, the new java.time library does not seem to use it either (which would be the number one reason to switch the whole library to JDK8 only...)
Catching an exception is not necessarily slow, at least it used to be slower
A TryParse() implementation would be difficult anyway, since there are no such things as 'out params'
