A press conference to say you need more time to decide? How about not having the damn conference? I'm OK with him taking as much time as he needs, but don't gather the media to say you need time.

Maybe he's thinking long and hard about the Rangers?

Also wait a minute, Parise has a massive ego for not making a decision and using a press conference to say that, but Schultz doesn't, for not signing with the team that drafted him as an unproven kid out of college and holding what was essentially a king's court with a ton of teams?

I'm not following. I see nothing wrong with what he did, unless I haven't been following the whole situation and he said something else. It's stupid, but the media is mostly to blame. They eat this **** up.

UFAs must hate NJ. Why does it take them all so freaking long to decide?

I feel for the poor second tier guys who are going to remain hostages until he decides. Hopefully they get frustrated by the delay, and the Rangers can grab who they want with less competition.

I don't think the Rangers made an offer.

I don't want anything to do with him he can go playing in the KHL for all I care. Untalented waste of cap space.

Parise has had a full year to research cities, school systems, taxes and neighborhoods of 27 other NHL cities. There's nothing groundbreaking during these sales pitches.

I don't think he called for a press conference, he just exited the building and reporters were camped out there so he made a statement. They probably wouldn't let him near a car without saying something.

Because it sounds like needless bashing for a guy trying to make a decision that effects the rest of his life.

I believe it was on July 2nd or 3rd.

I don't think there was a press conference to say he needs more time as well

Blame his agents then, was probably their idea to notify everyone of what was going on.

Does he deserve to be one of the highest paid players in the league? HELL NO.

He's a good player but to have the hockey world stop for him and be paid one of highest contracts in the NHL is a joke.

Looks like he is leaving NJ which is why he probably needs more time.

Reporters are stalking Parise right now. He probably just let them know he didn't reach a decision so they could go home for the night.

I'm just happy we aren't going after him.

Would have been a huge mistake.

this kid could not have gotten any luckier being a UFA this summer. he is NOT a superstar player. he's barely a star player. what he's about to get paid is a joke for what he brings

Because people like you are incessantly whining about him making a decision - imagine what the jerks in the media are doing.

I dont blame him one bit for letting everyone know he hasnt made a decision and hasnt set a timetable. How people are spinning this into being ego-driven is a sad commentary on our fanbase to be honest. Sure seems like hes doing it to get the info-****** off his back for a bit while he wrestles with a decision that will effect the rest of his life.

If you're complaining about that, I think you need to look in the mirror and get a clue.

Parise has every right to take his time. He also has several responsibilities as a public figure. Holding a press conference to announce nothing is a dick move to the people who help make him a household name.

Edit- my bad. Not a presser. Just an announcement. I still hate him.
