Does anyone know if parise's agent has a twitter? I remember following kovy's agent Grossman during his contract saga and he tweeted a couple times towards the beginning it which gave some insight into how the situation was going.

Meehan is an agent and he's listed as Zach's on Wikipedia and I read a tweet from Todd Cordell that says he asked "Parise's agent Don Meehan" about Zach recently. He must have two.

I thought maybe he was Suter's as well, but hes not.

Meehan runs Newport Sports, which Arnott works at as an agent.

So it's one company, and Meehan is the heavy hitter at it, so he's stepping in to make sure they do their best job with Parise.

Your unconditional rejection of violence makes you smugly think of yourselves as noble, as enlightened, but in reality it is nothing less than abject moral capitulation to evil. Unconditional rejection of self-defense, because you think its a supposed surrender to violence, leaves you no resort but begging for mercy or offering appeasement.

You would expect the head of the agency to be involved in any major contract negotiations.

Random, likely irrelevant question, but who was Parise's agent that negotiated his first contract? The one that was actually pretty bad for Zach?

Think Zach fired him as well, not sure though.

It was about as good as one in his position could expect. As a RFA he had very little leverage, and he didn't have his 45 goal season until afterwards. Only the Stamkos's and Doughtys of the world tend to get much more.

we can only be happy with Meehan stepping in...

if you think of all recent contracts who took either forever to settle or gave heartburns to the fans... Stamkos, Webber, Parise, doughty... Meehan is behind all of them

Neil Abbott. And yes, he was fired.

It was pretty damn bad. The contract didn't really anticipate the rising salary cap. Zach had no arbitration rights but still, compared to the contract Zajac signed, it's way worse.

Arnott and Meehan work for the same company. See above.

In fact, I think people respect Elias a lot for deciding to stay even after getting all of those offers.


Count me among them.
