Poni had no reason to wait, and had I been a player in his position, I wouldn't wait either.

This is a guy who played on 5 teams in 3 seasons. That's a player who takes a contract when he gets one.

If the rumors are true and Parise's agents really did dupe Lou into thinking he would re-sign, then he probably started doing the math based on the supposedly agreed upon amount.
Lou even said publicly that when he sat down with Zach that weekend, there was never a question of asking for more money than what was offered. So that's why contracts started being signed.
