I hope this drags out even longer just to spite the impatient people on here who are whining about it.

What history am I trying to rewrite?

The state of Michigan is hardly in the dire straits that the city itself is in. None of the Red Wings players actually live in Detroit, so why is it a factor, here?

He could have thought about that way earlier. If I was FA I would know everything bevore 1rst July...I would have my list and I would know what it would take for a team to gain a spot. It really can't be that hard. You all act like he would risk anythink when signing a 100m contract.

How many contract discussions have you been a part of to establish this precedent?
So what you are saying that if I find myself some night in downtown Detroit I won't need a flashlight due to half the street lights being turned off?

People that think like this scare me. You lost respect cause he's mulling a decision. Who the hell are you to judge a guy who's done everything right and is making sure everything is right for his family and him.

Seriously guys? Yeah, Parise and Suter are clearly aware that they'll be targeted by other teams.
Yes they know they'll get fairly comparable offers.


But what the hell is the point of trying to persuade a player to come to your team if they've had "months" to think?
It's really a lot more than just money and term which most of us have repeatedly beat to death already.

I really also don't get the sense of entitlement that some posters are demonstrating. At the end of the day, just some of us need to turn off the computer and go outside for a bit. Myself included.

Hard to think about a decision in advance when you don't have all the details, isn't it?

I would think if he asks dear old dad for his advice, I think ol JP has a little talk about just how much it means to be a Cup Champion. I'm sure JP could easily say "Zach, you have a house down the road, and we will be here the rest of your life. Now is your time to go wherever you feel you have the best chance of gaining the immortality that comes with having your name etched in The Cup" After all, JP is a hockey guy who knows just how important this decision is professionally. I don't know any parent who would want to hold their child back from what they feel is a better opportunity, just to be closer to home!

If I were in Parise's position I'd grab my wife/fiancee, tour the cities, try some local restaurants, check out the real estate market, and scope out the local schools. Spend 2 or 3 weeks nailing a decision and tell the teams that if they can't deal with that, then too bad.

I think you need to take some time away from your computer/smartphone. I have hardly looked at twitter or been on this sight all day and you know what, I was able to make some decisions. Please relax about these guys making a decision about their future.

It's not like Pittsburgh's offer was a surprise, nor Detroit/NJ/Minnesota. If ZP didn't have some idea of who would be bidding on him his agent should be fired.
But man, company A has a slightly better benefits package. Oh but company B gives me more vacation, and it's 15 minutes closer to my house. Oh and then there's company C which is paying slightly more, and the area is really nice and they even have free babysitting for my kids. But of course company D is my current employer and they've been so good to me over the years.

But no, yeah he should have decided based on who offered him the most money by 12pm est on Sunday.

Good idea in theory, but he'd probably be followed everywhere by the media. He's the biggest story in hockey ATM.

I don't think Suter would want to play behind Keith and Seabs, supposedly one reason he's leaving because he wants to be teh man.
