Just heard on NHL Network, apparently no teams are visiting Parise. Do not want a situation like last year with Brad Richards. Also, Parise wants $12-million signing bonus, as well as $12-million the first year of deal.


I don't believe that. If that were true, he would be asking to be the highest paid player in the league. If that it true, then it's only about money and I'm no longer interested.
Do or do not. There is no try

Zach Parise wants $24 million in signing bonus! This guy is becoming way over priced.
THAT'S 63 PERCENT OF THE PHOENIX COYOTES CURRENT PAYROLL!!!

I'd rather target defenseman Ryan Suter and Jason Garrison.

I'd stay in the Parise bidding just to jack up the price for Pittsburgh.

Ilitch is a billionaire, no good reason not to offer both Suter and Parise the max in salary and bonuses the first couple years, so long as they keep the cap hits reasonable.

I don't believe that. If that were true, he would be asking to be the highest paid player in the league. If that it true, then it's only about money and I'm no longer interested.

Biggest UFA in the year with the highest cap. Richards got $24M in salary & bonuses for his first two years, no reason Parise wouldn't be higher with a higher cap.

Great point by edi, would PIT offer Parise more than Crosby? Wont be as big a cap hit I'm sure but more annual salary this year? Don't see it happening

No way, he may want a 12 million signing bonus but no way he is also asking for 12 million in salary, maybe 1-2 million. He wants the signing bonus so he is set in case of a lockout cause he would get that upfront.

Illitch gave the Tiger's Prince Fielder 212 million over 9 years. I think his pockets are deep enough to still sign Parise. Get it done wings! :D

I wonder if Parise wants the signing bonus just for security against a possible salary rollback in the new Cba. No way he makes more than crosby.

I think something like this just shows what type of organization the Wings are and that we as fans are lucky to be a part of it. I really hope things work out for us. Getting these two would really bolster our chance of getting another Cup SOON and that really just what I want!!!! Bring Em Home Kenny!!!! Go Detroit Red Wings!!

McKenzie is saying no decision until tomorrow

Zach Parise's decision will not come until tomorrow. Has narrowed the field to a select group and will decide Monday.

They came back and said that this was a mistake and Suter HAD NOT picked his team, thought they have an "insider" who says he will. At least thats what DSN was posting on Facebook, so take it for what you will.

I also just read on Twitter/McKenzie that Parise has narrowed it down to the Wild, Flyers, Penguins, and Devils. Yeah, welll....... :angry2:

McKenzie never said that. Eklund and someone else misquoted him and McKenzie actually pointed it out.

Anything Eklund is involved in you have to take with a grain of salt.

Thanks for clearing that up. I did see a re-quote a little later that included the Wings. Shoulda known better with Ekland...

I would be very surprised if we got Parise. We already have Dats, Z, and Franzen signed long term, so I'm not expecting another forward signed for more than 5 years, unless Franzen get traded. Plus I think we're ok at forward with Nyquist playing in Detroit all year.

Suter, I'd bet money he'll be a Wing next year.
Lets Go:

Tigers
Roughriders
Lions

Pistons
