that rumour came from who? i NEVER saw any legit report of this or any report at all actually other than people mentioning it here and trust me i looked.
Its more like people are more inclined to believe what they want to believe than anything else.
Look, now it's a legit rumor:

BREAKING: Parise turned down 7 yrs/ 50 mil from #Devils, will test free agency. #scoop #freeagent #insidernews
Is that really all it takes? If you'd prefer to believe something like that over a guy who has been on this site over a decade and has no reason to make things up, then fine. It's not like Sundstrom is here dropping "inside knowledge" from his "sources" every day. This is one of the very very few things Sundstrom has let leak out. Of course we would more likely believe him or something MSweet says than someone who is looking for Twitter attention.
