It's clear to me he has made up his decision in his own mind. I am convinced of that.

I hope that's what it comes down to. He has a good life in NJ, he's the captain, he has a competitive team, he likes his coach, he likes his teammates, he'll get paid well, and he'll have the rare distinction of being a lifer for his team. Why make a change when things are good already?

He is full on channeling Lou at this point. Pure status quo

Ummm those of you who are married what do you think your wife would do if u just decided on something like this? Regardless if it means you move or stay where you are?
My wife and I moved from Southern California (we were both born and raised there) to North Texas 6 years ago and it took her 2 years to really settle into living here. She still misses California (her family still lives there), but she is happy with our situation here in Texas.

It wasn't an easy decision, but we had to make it quickly. I had a job opportunity become available while we were vacationing in Hawaii. It only took us a day to make the final decision, but if she had said, "no", we wouldn't have moved.

Ah, god dammit! This sucks!
probably this

I can see something like
NJ offers 12 years 78 mil and not really front loaded(Zach wants to play in NJ)
Pitts offers 12 years 96 mil Front loaded (alot of money now and play with Crosby)
Minny offers 13 years 104 mil Front loaded(plays at home and is very very rich)

Money is very tempting, playing with Crosby would be nice.
I can see something like this being the problem, hes making a decision that will impact the rest of his hockey career.
Wants to stay but alot of other opportunities open up.

Yes I know, but he's not going to publicly screw Lou and VBK over and be like '**** no, the Devils could only offer me $4M'

Personally, out of those three I would go with Pittsburgh. Hopefully he knows the Devils is HIS team. He'll be 3rd-4th fiddle to Crosby, Malkin. Neal.

I personally think he is gone. One team is gonna give him $24 million in his first calender year.

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

Will the trolling never end ?

To be clear on Parise, it's been clarified to me he's taking a step back to think with his fiancee. That could happen tonight in Toronto

He's just stalling until we reach more threads than we gave Kovy. Pick up the pace people.

Love Russo acting like he got the scoop. Wade told everyone that you fool.

So... he`s not travelling to Minnesota?

Well, we did put 20+ pages on this thread since 5 PM. The Indecision did help pick up the pace a good amount. Although more tweets like those will definitely keep the pace up.

I am not going to pretend to have any idea what is going through his mind. I just again have more respect for him for taking his time to make the decision.

Also - wonder if any of the BS speculators and cliff jumpers on this board will take note of this quote on TG's blog

Quote:
Parise said the Devilsí financial situation is not a factor.
