Zach Parise Rumors: Decision Coming On Monday?

It's looking increasingly unlikely that free-agent forward Zach Parise will make a decision about his future on Sunday. The first sign of this came earlier in the day when Parise's agent canceled all of his client's scheduled in-person meetings with teams. There was simply too much interest, so Parise's agent decided to have teams submit their offers over the phone.

The other big sign that a decision might not be made until Monday at the earliest comes from Carolina Hurricanes general manager Jim Rutherford, who doesn't expect to hear from the Parise camp on Sunday.

Parise reportedly has offers on the table that include $80-90 million over 12 years. At this point, with so much money being offered, it may ultimately come down to the best fit for Parise. Considering just how many teams have expressed interest, I wouldn't be surprised if this went beyond Monday.
