The plan is Parise will come back here to Minnesota tomorrow, discuss with fiancee and get back to his agents "later;" nothing imminent

Don't flame me, but I'm starting to warm up to this idea. All in all I think Semin is on par with Parise. I would say neither is really better than the other. Parise is just better for our team as the captain.

Yeah I don't like that either...unless he's just trying to let his dad down easy by saying he doesn't want Minnesota.

So that's it then. We won't hear nothing until Wednesday afternoon. And even then, he'll end up going to the friggin' Pens, I'll bet.

Just end this, Zach. Lou has other players to re-sign, you know?

Not saying its his right, but as a sports fan we are entitled to our opinions, and quite frankly yes this is a huge deal and important, but come on... At some point it becomes indecisiveness rather than thoroughness

Call me crazy but i think Semin will probably wait however long is necessary for Zach to sign. It's going to drive up his value tremendously.

No one here has any clue what Parise is thinking right now. And even if he is being "indecisive", who cares? He's earned every right to be. It's a life altering decision.

People who get so bent out of shape over this should probably evaluate their life priorities.

As much as I want to get on with my summer, I'd understand any player taking his time in this situation. He's deciding rest of career.

I think he has decided himself. He just needs to tell his soon to be wife and get her to be okay with a move.

We're cooked.

If he stays it will be worth it. If he doesn't it won't be. I've thought this all along, but I think he's leaving. Maybe he doesn't wanna leave, but the money from Pittsburgh is better, and playing with Malkin, and Crosby is more appealing to him. I've already made up my mind if he leaves I'll be pretty pissed with him if the only options are Tedenby as a replacement next year because we missed out.

Him and Suter are holding up FA's

Big moves but honestly they knew there were going to be UFA's they should have talked the possiblities with there families before July 1st
