Kovalchuk said the exact same things as Parise just before he came to New Jersey.
Turning down $100 million extensions = "I want to re-sign"?

That said, that quote you mentioned isn't the purpose of the thread. The reasons why the contract hasn't been signed, and Parise acknowledging those reasons is.

Lou doesn't negotiate within the season and Parise knows that and isn't shocked or worried about it.
