NHL Free Agency: Where Zach Parise Will Land

July 3rd, 2012 by Jeremy Fuchs Leave a reply »
Star free agent Zach Parise is expected to make his decision about where he will play very soon.

Where will that be?

The suitors: Minnesota, Detroit, New Jersey, Pittsburgh and Chicago.

Parise did not say when his decision will be made, only saying: “I’m getting closer, but I haven’t made a decision,” Parise told TSN. “I haven’t set any deadlines.”

We'll break down the contenders and where Parise is most likely to land.




Parise is from Minnesota, and the hometown Wild have made a pitch. Parise recently bought a home in Minnesota, fueling speculation. 

The Wild have plenty of cap room to offer Parise a big deal.

They also have a good young roster, featuring players such as Mikko Koivu, Dany Heatley, Devin Setoguchi and Cal Clutterbuck. Parise would make them a playoff team.

They are, however, suspect on defense and in goal, and they are not Cup contenders. After coming so close to winning, it's hard to see Parise joining a team that isn't quite ready.
