Spoil:
J.P. Parise. They were teammates on the North Stars for 6 years.
Nanne knows pretty much all the owners and GM's and is still one of the most plugged in people in regards to NHL management even though he's been out of it for 20 years. He's big buddies with Sather and in one of the interviews where he commented on Zach he also said he knew the number the Rangers would be willing to offer. (If you're interested, I posted links to the two radio interviews Nanne did this week in the 'Trades, Rumors....' Parise thread).

In regards to the JP/Nanne connection, it's even deeper than just ex-teammate, Nanne is a family friend and has known Zach since he was a kid. (though Nanne was unsuccessful in lobbying Zach to attend the U of MN when deciding on college...)
