RT @Ledger_NJDevils: According to Parise's agent, Wade Arnott, a decision might still be announced tonight. If not, then tomorrow.

Okay, now he's definitely trolling us

Give the guy a break. He has to know whether or not he can start pre-ordering jersey and seats for Parise bobble head night.

Hoss is far too busy making his rounds as VP of the Marcus Kruger fan club to attend any games.

Like I said, it's all a matter of who you want to believe. There's speculation that Chicago made pitches to both players and are in on both players.. which, if they are, they were from the begining of free-agency.

My point has been so badly missed. I don't give two ***** about Parise taking his time to make a choice.. I have a problem with addressing the media, getting everyone excited/relieved only to announce he hasn't made a choice, but the list is narrowed, and he's confident a choice will be made the next day, he just needs to discuss things with "X" family member(s).

Like I said.. Ryan Suter hasn't had any trouble creating a stir.. why? Because he's in Wisconsin with his family and not addressing the media day-to-day.

Hoss, you make it sound like he is picking out which toilet paper he wants to buy.

Suter also isn't AS big of a name as Parise and has already announced that he won't announce his decision until Parise does, so nobody is bugging him about it because he already said he won't until Parise does.

I understand your point I just think you're wrong. hes the big name UFA this year, and he (probably mistakenly) went to Toronto where I thought his agent's office was.

You mentioned before he should have had an idea who would be interested... and tbh if the Hawks truly are in the running I bet he's about as surprised as we are. Parise isn't really a name CHI has been linked to until yesterday-ish

It might just be me, but Chicago looks like the obvious choice.

No homer.

Show me where Suter actually said he won't decide until Parise does? The speculation is that he's going to decide after Parise, but I haven't seen anything from Suter's camp to confirm that.

And, no, Parise didn't call the media to tell them to come. They just came. That's how it works. He'd probably rather they not be there.

Chicago wasn't a named linked to Hossa before they signed him. None of their trades get leaked before they're made either. They run a tight ship.

Been at work all day, and just checking my phone when I got chances. I was going based on what I'd read in this thread. If Suter hasn't confirmed that, then my mistake.

Just have to wait for someone to complain that Bowman didn't trade for Roy, despite clearly waiting on Parise/Suter.

I was a little disappointed we didn't get him, but I understand, waiting on the big fishies is something that takes priority over trading for Derek ****ing Roy.
