With the Wild that's more like a sentence. Agent to Parise, "ya kid I plea-bargained it down to 10 to 15."

One of the dumbest ideas of all time.

NJ is a premiere place to play hockey, inspite of the teenage analysis written by the media. Zach wants to play for a championship club. And the Wild certainly aren't that. They need a rebuild, not a great player bound for another Cup Final. GO DEVILS ! !

If he signs with Jersey he will not finish his career in Newark as they will move in the foreseeable future

That would be a Wild contract :(

Not gonna happen especially with the cba up for grabs this off season

I can't see that happening with the DiPeitro and Luongo problems hanging over the leagues heads. But if he could get 4 Mill for 13 years guaranteed, hell, go for it.

News Alert NHL contracts are guaranteed otherwise DiPietro would be a FA

What we do know is his offer wont be front loaded...that much is sure..which means he'll pass...

It can be front loaded but the back end years can't be below the league minimum like Kovies original

Although it's a given they are going to follow the NBA's lead and put in an amnesty clause

There seems to be an Amnesty everytime the CBA comes up...
