Looking more and more like we are going to be sitting here on Thursday morning awaiting an announcement.

If Parise doesn't stay, Lou is probably going to absolutely have to make a trade and maybe a lower level FA signing as well.

And please no Sykora. We've got enough over 35 contracts on this team as it is.

I hope he cripples Pitt's salary cap.

Captain Invisible can sleep in his cash piles.

This is getting ridiculous. I just hope he doesn't go to the Pens.

Well we know he's not going to the Penguins then, because there is no way the Wild would be offering $120M.


'might' 'chance'. I should really start a twitter account and just throw guesses at the wall until something sticks. Do they make money off this?

If true, no wonder Zach is taking his time...still don't like that he is though lol
At this point I've given up trying to figure out why he's dragging his feet and looks fifty years old.

-He could want to go to Minnesota but is reluctant to sign the rest of his career away on the worst team
-He could want to stay here but is reluctant about ownership
-He could want to stay here but family doesn't
-He could want to go to Pittsburgh but doesn't want to stab his friends and teammates in the back so he's trying to get the most he can out of them
-He could be feeling guilty about saying no to Minnesota and/or leaving $20+ million on the table

And I'm probably missing one or two other reasons why he could be so conflicted at this point.

It is insanely stupid to let it known that you want to trade a particular player. It's ****ing over CBJ.

Because they are the wild and aren't going anywhere anytime soon. I'm sure Detroit's offer is major like we heard, but we also heard they still want to remain about 7 under cap according to an earlier tweet so the offer can't be super over the moon compared to the Wild's offer.

He is really torn most likely between staying here and leaving tons of money on the table, or taking the money and leaving. If we could offer both this would of been long over.

Lots of chatter about the Wings huge offer to Ryan Suter… Now remember the #Flyers have an offer over $100-million. To him AND Zach Parise.

I wouldn't worry. ZP just said genuinely in an interview that there are many different things involved in his decision and money was a small factor. I dont know, maybe he is lying.

If anything I hope ZP see thats the Wild are so desperate because of their inability to win that they are throwing so much money at him.

Pretty good is what it is. Kovalchuk`s slap shot is top3, just like his wrist shot. Only one of Semin`s shots can be ranked that high among the forwards.

I just don't see NSH taking Martin if Suter walks to Pitt. Why help a team that just stole your #2 D?

@Aportzline. No one is asking CBJ to give Nash away, but all teams say the same...price is too high.

How come? He`s UFA. Period. They are reportedly interested in Martin. Heck, that trade can happen anyway.

Sweet jesus I wish I was a fly in the room in Zach's agent's office and Suter's living room, all these reports about staggering offers are making me wince.

I still like my idea for Hemsky. If we can get Zach and hemsky this team needs to make no other moves.

No one

If sykora makes the team better, sign him 30 times over

He could want to stay here but isn't sure leaving all that extra money, including giant signing bonuses, is the best idea.

Honestly if it was about picking between two teams that isn't us he wouldn't be so conflicted because it isn't as emotional decision and his whole family and agents want him out of here anyway. He is definitely torn about leaving or not.

Because they actually need a d-man to replace him? I don't think Matt Carle or whoever else is left on the market (mostly dreck) is running there anyway and they need to attempt to appease Weber. But yeah I'll curse Nashville if they help the Pens get Parise by taking their cap headache
