Found June 25, 2012 on The Victory Formation:
It would seem that the Pittsburgh Penguins mean business this offseason. Just last week, they traded away Jordan Staal for a nice haul, and now there are reports that the Pens are about to go all in on the top two free agents for 2012, Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. According to a report in [...]

Did Crosby incept Zach Parise?

Interesting quotes from a beat writer out in Philly:   So much for #Flyers making run at Zach Parise. From what I hear, he's headed to Penguins. Apparently Parise & Crosby want to play together. — Randy Miller (@RandyJMiller) June 23, 2012   Go on... @sarmen25 Many teams want Parise, but heard he wants to go to Pens to play with Crosby...

Todd Cordell: New Jersey Devils post-draft notes + update on Zach Parise

The NHL Entry Draft is in the books, and in my opinion the New Jersey Devils did quite well. Today I'll provide a few notes on their draft picks, as well as an update on Zach Parise and more. I will do a more in-depth draft review for the Devils hopefully some time this week. - As I said yesterday, I'm starting to like the Stefan Matteau selection more and more. He doesn...

Making the case for Ryan Suter

    Today we're making the case for pursuing Ryan Suter over Zach Parise.  Tomorrow, we will pursue Parise over Suter. Today's scenario implies a couple of things. Shero will pursue Suter and not even worry about signing Parise. Shero will sign Suter for $7.5 million a season. Quick reasons this is a possibility: 1.  Even with...

Is Zach Parise financially possible for the Bruins?

It looks more and more like too much has to right for the Bruins to get their hands on Zach Parise “Just get Zach Parise and we will be set” That’s the general consensus of Boston Bruins fans right now. The New Jersey Devils’ forward just finished a playoff campaign raising his stock into one of the top ten or fifteen players in the National Hockey League and is an unrestricted...

Penguins After Parise

from Josh Yohe and Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, The Penguins won a Stanley Cup with Jordan Staal and may try to reclaim it with Zach Parise…. The Penguins expect to reach a long-term extension with center Sidney Crosby this summer and want to give him a fixture at wing throughout the prime years of his career, a team source said. Crosby and Parise played together...

The Pens to make push for Parise and Suter

Apparently, the Pens have cleared a bunch of cap space and are going to take a serious run at signing Ryan Suter and Zach Parise. This is an emerging story line that I first heard  on XM Home Ice today.  I really hope that this does not come to fruition - the Pens with Evgeni Malkin, Zach Parise, Sidney Crosby and Ryan Suter would be the nucleus of a pretty solid hockey...

Wild Have Enough Cash To Land Top Free Agents

from Ben Goessling of the Pioneer Press, It will start on Sunday, July 1, when a crowded field of suitors can officially begin chasing New Jersey Devils forward Zach Parise and Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter—the two biggest prizes on the free-agent market and two players who could do nothing less than change the Wild’s future should they wind up in St. Paul. Making...

Red Wings afternoon news: the Pittsburgh factor and draft pick discussion

Cue the lather, rinse, repeat button regarding last night and this morning’s crop of stories regarding the Pittsburgh Penguins’ pursuit of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, because MLive’s Ansar Khan does his best to break the situation down as succinctly as possible: As attractive a destination as Detroit would be for Suter and Parise – the opportunity to play with talents like...

Richard Cloutier: Operation Dubey Shield: P2

In this first part of this blog, I looked defensemen the Oilers could possibly trade for. In Part 2, I will look at free agency and if the Oilers can find any solutions there. 1. Justin Schultz - You know I had to start with this kid. He's one of the three BIG PRIZES this summer, along with Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. But unlike Parise and Suter, Schultz can't ask for...

Red Wings overnight report: Frk’n draft talk, Hall of Fame Tuesday and yes, more free agent blather

Cue the dueling banjos, because this week’s shaping up as a two-topic slug-fest. This morning’s crop of Red Wings stories focus on topics we’ll probably continue revisiting from now until July 1st in the Red Wings’ crop of six new prospects from the 2012 Draft and even more free agent chatter as the press corps working in Zach Parise and Ryan Suter’s potential destinations...

Red Wings Free Agency Roundtable: Filip Kuba

If the Wings strike out on Ryan Suter and can't land, say, Justin Schultz or Matt Carle, would Kuba make a nice consolation prize? Continue reading →

Justin Schultz sweepstakes begin

The June 25th deadline has come and gone and as expected, Anaheim was unable to sign defenseman Justin Schultz to an Entry Level contract, meaning he’ll be a free agent on July 1st. Schultz, 21, may actually be the most hotly pursued of all the free agents this summer because unlike Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, Schultz will be relatively affordable. Schultz is in line to make a...
