Please watch this Bob Mckenzie vid:
As Bob Mckenzie states there is a low offer of 10-year 80 million and maybe as high of an offer as 100 million dollars for Zach Parise.
The Penguins, Flyers, Wild, Red Wings, and even the Devils are the reported teams on Parise's short list.
Parise gave some bizarre press conference in a parking lot that didn't yield any clues:
There are several accounts out over the internet that are reporting Parise to the Pens is a done deal.
You should not believe the following tweets:
