08:24 AM ET 06.21 | These are strange days for Zach Parise. [Surround him with Devils fans], and he'll tell them there's no way he's going to sign with the rival New York Rangers, as he did last week. Put him behind an autograph table at Ridder Arena in Minneapolis, and he'll tell a Wild fan he's coming to the Twin Cities. Everyone knows it's a joke, that there's so little Parise can say, yet the questions keep coming. ... Parise said that right now, he's focused on working things out with the Devils. That's his No. 1 priority, and he said he wants the negotiations to work out without becoming too stressful. But even while claiming such a singular focus, Parise admitted that what other teams could offer is always lurking in the back of his mind.

His agent said yesterday there is a meeting set up on Monday with the Devils. Lou said nothing (shocker). So only one team can negotiate with him now and that team isn't until at least Monday.

Meh, Zach is a smart player, he knows that with Burkie those bottles will be empty.

Burkie will probably make Parise clean the emptiy bottles as well...................... besides Parise is either destined to stay in Jersey or sign with either Detroit or his home-state Minnestoa Wild.

Devils clearance sale, Leafs or Sabers will get him...

Here we go again with Zach. It makes some kind of sense to me that he becomes a Red Wing.

My only question is are there enough Devils fans to actually surround a person? ;)

Get it done! Just like with Marty a few years ago, just write what you want, and done! Before he hits the market.

No, but all 3 of us are still pretty excited about beating up on the Flyers in the playoffs ;)

Burn? At best that was a mild suntan. I don't see the Devils beating up on too many teams with Parise gone and Brodeur another year older ;)
