While I'm not saying there isn't truth in this, if Parise knew he was signing with Pitt earlier than why not just come out and say it. I would think that this delay isn't just posturing and he really hasn't truly decided. Sure he can be leaning one way over another but at this point I don't see Parise doing this for show...but then again who knows really.


also if he would know already it probably means that his Dad would too... means that the whole world would know too

This is the source of the tweet in question

https://twitter.com/#!/GinoReda

@GinoReda
Zach Parise has told people close to him that he will be signing with the #penguins

And that is a fake account.


That's what I read.

Who is Gino Reda anyway?

Whatever the case, I don't think he's blabbing to a motormouth "friend" with a twitter account.

Is there anyone else on this site who watches this stuff closely and monitors it? Seems to be a real lack of people who actually come to the table with any sort of news or even rumor. Kinda annoying.

It would be disappointing if he leaves and more so if he goes to Pittsburgh. And for all of those who criticize others when they say that they hopes he fails miserably if he goes elsewhere remember this: by going to another team Parise will be competing against nj and more so if to a division rival, so he will be working to cause the devils to fail. Therefore it is ok to want to see him fail as well in the competitive spirit

That's because the only people who really know what's going on are Zach, his close family, his agents, and the GM's involved. The credible sources only tweet what they can confirm. The guys who talk about their "sources" and crow about "you heard it here first" throw crap against the wall and hope for the best. They are absolutely full of it and want attention.

Since FA opened I got three texts through the day about Parise leaving, all causing me to have a panic attack, and none holding any actual validity. I'm not believing anything until I hear it from Zachs mouth

I wouldn't be surprised if the next tweet was something like "Rick Nash called Parise today, told him to "Hurry the fvck up dude"".

The last time an elite Devils UFA took forever to make up his mind, we were left with Vlad Malakhov and Dan McGillis as a contingency plan.

I know 99% of what happened then doesn't apply here, but still, these tweets saying Zach is torn over the possibility of leaving New Jersey make the Nieds drama come to mind. Sorry if this is a Debbie Downer post.

No the last time that happened we wound up with arbitration, two contracts and the loss of two draft picks - but still got the player back lol.

But yeah I do get the feeling Zach's looking for a way out but feels trapped. Then again I never thought Kovy was staying either :P
