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.
You can't exactly listen to anything players, coaches and GM's say. At the very least, each comment should be taken with a grain of salt. They aren't just going come out and say what they are thinking.

How many times has a GM denied a trade just to do it? Or a player said he wants to resign and then leave?

Now not suggesting Parise is doing this (I have no clue what he will do), but everything said in the media blogosphere should be taken with an eye of caution.
