Minnesota Wild Sign Zach Parise to an Utterly Ridiculous Contract

Michael Russo Story

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.
