WAIT! WHAT!? HOW MUCH!?

Minnesota Wild Sign Zach Parise to an Utterly Ridiculous Contract



Michael Russo Story

Quote:
Feeling the need to inject their roster with high end players, the Wild GM went out and completes one of the more stranger deals in sports history; signing Prior Lake native Zach Parise to a seven year, $93.8 million dollar deal. And before everyone moves their cursor towards their calculator, that comes out to be an annual total of $13.4 million for a max contract. Quite the statement being sent here. Wild GM this providence had this to say: "The Minnesota Wild needed to make a drastic move in this free agency period. We feel we've done that and we definitely spit in the face of conventional thinking this offseason; and then some. But you know what? With the additions of Zach Parise and Bobby Ryan, not to mention our prospects; we're a better team going forward. It'll be a fun ride." TSN reporter Bob McKenzie then asked 'And if this doesn't work out?' to which the Wild GM laughingly said "If it doesn't work out? Well I'm sure I won't be around to see it, that's for sure.". Touché.
