11:27 AM ET 12.08 | Zach Parise skated with a number of fellow locked-out NHLers down at his favorite place, the University of Minnesota, Friday morning and said the atmosphere amongst his brethren was "more confusion than anything else" after last night's turn of events in labor negotiations between the league and NHLPA. Parise, who one day hopes to actually wear a Wild sweater, said the week was a "roller coaster." "Everyone thought it was great the one day, and, of course there's going to be some back and forth and high-blood pressure during some of the exchanges. That's expected in any type of negotiation," Parise said by phone this afternoon. "But I think everyone was a little surprised how it turned out, seeing how it was going so well to where it is now." Still Parise doesn't believe last night's breakdown means the end to a possible shortened season. "I don't think it's as dramatic as everyone's trying to make it," Parise said. "I don't know the ins and outs of everything. But we have an agreement on a lot of things, I mean, a lot of things. There are still one or two things that need to be talked about, and in my eyes that's not a total derailment of a negotiation. I think people are being a little dramatic thinking this is Doomsday, which I don't believe."

At least not for him or his buddy Ryan. They're both getting paid handsomely.

You bet...they're just as confused as I am as to how some clown offered two not-so-superstars their ridiculous contracts!

Doomsday will be about Jan 1. I wonder if lockouts were mentioned by the Mayans?

Dec. 21 you mean. I got locked out of my car once at a car wash. Horrible feeling.

You and all your fellow Players call the Fuhrer and demand a vote by all membership on the latest offer. Until then ...no chance for a season.

Problem is now they all want the same thing.

That's how it would work normally.


Here's the offer, let's take a vote.

Nothing about contracts, existing or future is making any sense any more.
