Today is day 3 of the Zach Parise hostage crisis.
The common tone right now amongst some people is " he deserves as much time as possible, he is making the biggest decision of his life..."
Our initial reaction was this:
We just wanted to say **** you, Zach, make a decision on where you are going to sign your 100 million contract.
In fact this actually might be the greatest #whitepeopleproblem of all time.
But after thinking about it makes sense he didn't sign anywhere yet.
Day 1, Sunday: Parise starts getting offers and is staggered. Agents probably have to read over a bunch of ****, and they eliminate the teams that he doesn't want to go to.
Day 2, Monday: Parise and his agents go over his shortlist, and field calls from suitors. Brodeur probably gets emo on him. The Blackhawks cloud everything. Parise wants to go over **** with his family. Decision
Day 3, Tuesday:Decision...
BEST OF MAXIM
Winger Zach Parise has a once-in-a lifetime chance to get maximum dollars in unrestricted free agency.
He can write his own ticket. If he wants giant dollars up front in his new deal -- via a two-stage signing bonus for, say, $24 million -- he will get giant dollars up front.
That is why the New Jersey Devils failed to keep him off the market. As the Noon EDT July deadline neared...

Zach Parise has had us all waiting and he will continue to make us do so, at least for another day.

He would not tell reporters which teams...
Twitter was about to explode around 4:30 on Monday afternoon with the imminent news of a statement by Zach Parise in several minutes. Parise waited until roughly 5:00 PM eastern time to announce that, there would essentially be no announcement, as noted by TSN's Mark Masters. Masters went on to report that Parise did not feel pressure to make a choice and that he is still deciding...
The class of the 2012 free agent class is Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. They are both all star capable players who are young enough to remain in their primes.

Some 78 new contracts had been handed out in the first three days since the signing period began on July 1, and the biggest deals have not even gone down with Zach Parise and Ryan Suter still weighing multiple offers higher than the GNPs of some small countries. On the surface, it's business as usual in the NHL...
If the reports are accurate and they're coming from reputable sources then Predators free agent defenseman Ryan Suter could receive a contract that would pay him 14 million in each of the next two seasons, a number that would be just 400,000 under the maximum allowed under the NHL's salary cap and which also could make him the highest-paid player in the NHL next season...

Congrats to former Sabre spiritual leader, Paul Gaustad.
The predators signed Gaustad to a new four year, $13 million contract on Saturday night, thus preventing the burly centreman from hitting the open UFA market.
So, Zach Parise was in Toronto last night. He'll meet with the half dozen teams that covet him beginning at Noon today. That is, IF he declares...
It's 90 degrees today and I am wondering like many other hockey fans - where is Zach Parise going to sign and for how much. Zach's decision isn't going to happen today according to Michael Russo. Also, it sounds like the Penguins are Zach's front-runner. If you're a Wild fan I am sure you're hoping that he changes his mind.
