Pittsburgh is OFFICIALLY OUT on Zach Parise. He will not be joining the Penguins.

If this is true, it will be interesting to see what happens next. The Penguins aren't in a situation where they need to panic and immediately trade for someone now and the free agency market is pretty weak.
It's not like this is a "win or die" season for the Pens anyway. Parise would have been nice, but Crosby, Malkin, Neal, Letang, Fleury, etc. are all still Penguins and the team will still be a contender for years to come.
