New Jersey Devils
Detroit Red Wings
Tomorrow, July 1st, marks the beginning of free agent frenzy in the NHL. With so many big names on the market this summer, a few teams are looking at the possibility of losing players that have been franchise cornerstones for many years. Here are the top 5 free agents that will be available come tomorrow:
ZACH PARISE, NEW JERSEY DEVILS
Perhaps the most enticing player available is New Jersey Devils Captain, Zach Parise. The Devils of course want him back, but there are several teams in the mix that could potentially make Parise a better long-term offer, including his hometown Minnesota Wild, the Detroit Red Wings, and the reigning Stanley Cup Champs.
MARTIN BRODEUR, NEW JERSEY DEVILS
Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur may also be testing free agency. Having spent his entire 18-season career with New Jersey, many were shocked to learn that he had hired an agent and would be listening to other offers. At 40 years old, Brodeur will probably be signing his last NHL contract, but the po...
BEST OF MAXIM
NHL free agency is underway, and nearly every team will be interested in making a run at Devils’ captain Zach Parise. The young left-winger guided his team to the Stanley Cup Finals last season, and will surely be getting a huge contract this offseason. Here is a look at the places he will most likely end up.

Free agency is on the horizon and it’s old news that Devil’s captain and superstar Zach Parise is fronting the 2012 unrestricted free agent class. Although Parise has expressed his desire to remain a New Jersey Devil on countless occasions, it hasn’t stopped waves of rumors and speculation regarding where...
The New Jersey Devils have signed future Hall Of Famer Martin Brodeur to a two-year contract extension worth 4.5 million dollars per season.
The Devils now await word from Zach Parise to see if their Captain will re-join the team for next year and beyond.
I'll have more on the Brodeur signing plus any other Devils news later on today or tomorrow.
New Jersey Devils goaltender Martin Brodeur has hired prominent agent Pat Brisson days before the four-time Vezina Trophy-winner is set to become a free agent.
Canada's TSN first reported the move on Friday, and Brisson confirmed it in a text message to The Associated Press later in the day. Though Brodeur has indicated he'd prefer re-signing with the Devils, Brisson wrote...
Zach Parise needed at least another night of sleep before picking a team to play for next season.
Parise said Tuesday that he hadn't made a decision and doesn't have a timetable for one soon after landing in his home state at the Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport.
''I'm back here to talk with my family and make sure that we've done all the work...
Martin Brodeur will stay in New Jersey, according to reports.
Brodeur, 40, re-signed with the New Jersey Devils for two-years, $9 million early Monday morning.
Brodeur hired agent Pat Brisson to represent him in free agency but he never once stated a desire to leave New Jersey.
Brodeur has won 656 games in 1,191 career appearances, all with New Jersey. He has 119 shutouts and...
Let the bidding begin.
Zach Parise and Ryan Suter had a long list of suitors hoping to sign them when NHL free agency started Sunday afternoon.
Detroit coach Mike Babcock was part of a Red Wings contingent in the Toronto area to make a pitch to Parise, the top forward available, and his agent, Wade Arnott.
''We're going to get in the mix with him and see what we can...
from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune, The Wild can’t offer Zach Parise the chance to play alongside Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin the way the Pittsburgh Penguins can. It can’t offer Zach Parise a rich history of winning the way the Detroit Red Wings can.
What the Wild can offer the New Jersey Devils captain and Minnesota native is a chance to play in front of friends and...
There are big names floating around already this summer. And with free agency beginning today, I wouldn't mind some of them becoming a member of the blue and gold.
If the Sabres could land someone like Zach Parise, or make a move to acquire Bobby Ryan, that would be great. I don't expect that Buffalo will, so I've come up with a few players that could benefit the Sabres...
The hockey media world has been abuzz this morning at the news that 40 year old goaltender Martin Brodeur has enlisted the services of agent Pat Brisson in advance of July 1st, which could be an indication that he is not willing to take a home town discount to continue playing in New Jersey for a 20th season and may be open to other options.
While it is assumed that the hiring...
Well, the Wings are done for the day. Safe to say I'm surprised by a couple of the guys we got. Not too surprised about the Gustavsson signing. Happy about all of them in a way. I guess. I wonder what it must have been like to be in the Red Wings front office today. I imagine it was a bit crazy. Actually, I imagine it was a lot crazy. So crazy I decided to make a story about...
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...
