The longer this drags out, the worse it is for the Devils. He's thinking about leaving but is still reluctant and is dragging it out to the end. It's totally different then the Kovy situation, and it shouldn't be compared.

Where does he mean by home? NJ or Minnesota? When he says family, does he mean he'll be talking to his fiancee, his parents, or both?

Doesn't mean he will stay, but I'd say we haven't been knocked off the pedestal yet.
It also means these other offers are going to get crazier and crazier

That and giving the Devils time to structure a deal. When Wade Arnott briefly updated things he said "still working on some things." I'm hopeful that means finding a way to keep him a Devil without crippling them.

I know the wait is painful for everyone here and they may be mad at Parise for it but realistically it's July 2nd still and there is plenty of time left in the off-season. It's wierd but for some people making life altering decisions may take more than a couple of days.

I think he means

Hawks jumped in ,, He likes it and has to talk to family about it

not good news at all for the Devils. I mean, he knows our business and he's talked to Lou longer than he's had to the other teams. If he needs more time to decide that means he's definitely thinking about leaving, it's just a matter of deciding where to go. He's not coming back to NJ.

If Ken Holland hasn't heard anything from Parise, I'd say most of the offers are fairly similar (minus the Devils - finances - and Minnesota - home town ridiculous $).

If Zach isn't going to show loyalty, then his bride-to-be will put her foot down....on parise's foot instead.

If he has to talk to his family about it, that probably means he is going to be making a change.

He`s gone.
Ehhh... To me that means its not about money anymore (which is potentially good for us), and its about location (which may or may not be good for us). Unless the final choices in his mind are all places which offered the most money, then that's another story entirely.
