I am one of those fans that is holding out hope that former Fighting Sioux
forward Zach Parise
ends up signing a free agent contract with the Minnesota Wild
in the off season and finishes his hockey career in the "State of hockey."
After reading after reading J.P. Parise's comments the other day I got to thinking that the Rangers could be a destination for much sought after free agent player.
Denis Gorman, New Jersey --- J.P. Parise was quoted in Friday’s edition of Newsday as saying, Zach
“likes [John Tortorella] a lot,” and that his son “would fit in right there” with the Rangers. Zach Parise was a member of the 2010 U.S. Olympic Men’s hockey team, which Tortorella was an assistant coach on. Ryan Callahan was also a member of that team.
J.P. Parise went on to clarify his comments he made about the Rangers being a possible team that might seek Parise's services.
Tom Gulitti, Fire and Ice --- “I have to say I was extremely disappointed in how my comments were
portrayed in today’s newspaper article,” J.P. Parise said. “I would
never speak for Zach under any circumstance. He has not talked to me
about anything other than the playoffs and we have not discussed
anything but the playoffs and that is 100 percent where his focus is
right now and I have absolutely no intentions to distract and get things
away from his focus right now.”

After that little boondoggle regarding Zach Parise’s father perhaps furthering New York Rangers’ fans desires to see Zach Parise turn turncoat…It’s pretty bloody obvious that, regardless of their obvious loyalty to their current employers, both players can expect to have Brinks trucks backed up to their off-season homes and the rest of their careers very comfortably taken...

The Flyers haven’t ruled defenseman Chris Pronger out for next season, but there little evidence to suggest he will return. Severe post-concussion syndrome threatens to end his NHL career.Should Pronger sit, Philadelphia would gain $5 million in salary cap space once the season begins. That possibility could inspire the Flyers to spend to the cap limit this summer while taking...
NEW JERSEY 4, NEW YORK 1; series tied 2-2
New Jersey captain Zach Parise scored on the power play and into an empty net and added an assist to lead the Devils to a 4-1 win over the Rangers. Devils goaltenderMartin Brodeur made 28 saves and added his fourth assist of these playoffs, breaking the old record of three in a single post season.
The excitement of the NHL off-season is just around the corner and there have already been numerous rumors and speculations about who the Hurricanes might go after in the next couple of months. Unfortunately, the majority of it is just scuttlebutt from the media or fans with big dreams and expectations. While there’s nothing wrong with setting your sights high and hoping for great...
