There was a report that Zach rejected an offer mid-season. Parise is his own man. He can make his own decision, you know. His dad really pisses me off. Those comments during the Rags series were totally uncalled for and were unfair to both Zach and the Devils

To his dad's credit, he came out a few days later and said he was pretty upset that his words were cherry picked and put into the article out of context. He told TG I believe that he had no inside information and didn't talk to Zach about anything other then the playoffs at the time.

Twitter is nice, but at the same time, it really has made free agency painful.

Zach has been very grateful. IF he does leave for Minnesota I'll be upset but I'll still admire him.

IF he leaves for Pittsburgh I'll lose every ounce of respect for him.

It beats the old days of F5-ing the hell out of sites waiting for news to break or just word to come through on WFAN or ESPN before they hated hockey

For nervous Devils fans, I believe there's still a good chance that Parise stays in NJ. Stay tuned ...

Too bad so many talented hockey players are Russians.

A lot of Russian hockey players are actually dedicated and stuff but the few who aren't (Radulov) make them all look bad.

I don't put much stock in these tweets...things change so rapidly. Mystery teams can appear at the last second with massive offers, odd things can happen (hey A-Rod was a Red Sox right?)

Does Zach want to be 3rd fiddle in Pittsburgh or The Man here?

Also if Suter to Detroit hits a snag they're going to turn around and go after Parise hard. DO NOT discount Detroit

Sounds like Detroit's out, and Parise's making his decision within the next hour or two. I would imagine Suter's announcement coming after... However, I really don't know anything lol..

That's what I'm thinking. How do you go from the Captain of a team to a third wheel. Money talks, but that wouldn't sit right with me.

Detroit already put in their offer and it seems it wasn't what he was looking for.

Between Minnesota and us, I say Minnesota. Between Pittsburgh and us, I think he stays.

I would just be very surprised if he picks Minny. Unless he has the fiance breating down his neck to go 'home', it just doesn't make sense (unless he would seriously be averaging 10m/year). He won't see a winning team there for at least a few years.

For me I am the opposite of a previous poster. While I would hate for him to go to the Pens, that is an organization with a strong player base and would be a heavy cup favorite. To me, going to Minny would be a simple money grab.

Yea, the state of the team should deter Zach from signing with the Wild. I understand it's home, but when you're about to get as much money as he is...you can afford plenty of trips back home.
