Probably his preferred team is not the highest bidder, maybe by a lot and the delays and leaks of different teams is an effort to get more money out of the team he really wants to go for.

My guess is that he wants to go to the Pens, but he's finding it too hard to turn down the huge money from the Wild. So he's trying to get more from the Pens so he doesn't have to feel like he's turning down too much money.

This whole Parise thing is turning into the Lebran James of the NHL. Looks like a ****ing circus.

Yes it's that easy of a choice. The guy is making one of the biggest choice of his life. Its not a decision that can be made so easily

Yes! His father J.P. Parise lives in Minnesota. J.P. played for the Minnesota North Stars. I believe at around the same time as Lou Nanne.

Brother Jordan, I believe, also lives in Minnesota???

Parents live in Prior Lake, MN. His fiance and him recently purchased a home on Lake Minnetonka, which is basically in Minneapolis. I assume that is the 'home' they are speaking of.

Only due to HF Board members not having anything better to spend their time on. It's a big personal decision.

True, but ZP went public yesterday and said he would have his decision today. So I checked this board every 10 minutes to see if he signed anywhere all day. Then he said he needs more time. So he wasted my time today.

All minnesotans move to California. Proven fact. I just hope its anaheim and not la or sj.... San Jose isn't really California anyway though. I think its part of Oregon.

You should email Zach to ask for your valuable time back. He owes you

Parise lied to us. I am suing him because he caused me to be unproductive at work today because i was pressing refresh repeatedly.

you wasted your own time by checking the board every 10 minutes. And you wasted everyone's time by complaining about it...

Send a message via AIM to son of earl
This is nothing compared to the kovy saga its been 2 days I don't think he is trying to get more $$$ from a team he is really deciding where he wants to send the rest of his career playing and has the best chance of a cup of cups. I think he is going for a western team with taking all this extra time

They did make an offer, yes. RT @Cullksinikers: @ChrisKuc I'm sure Hawks offered a contract to Parise. I'd guess 10 years at $8 million per.
Yes we did, sir. I just asked Kuc on Twitter. Awaiting a response if we also offered one to Suter. Could be tricky if both accepted. That's a pipedream.

I don't believe Parise signs in Chicago. Not at all. But if he does sign, does that mean Kane is on the block?

The fact that you felt the urge to check the internet every 10 minutes to see if some hockey player signed a contract tells me that not much was really wasted in the grand scheme of things.
