For Parise, money “plays a very small part in” his decision


Star Tribune reporter Mike Russo caught up with Zach Parise this morning at the Minneapolis-Saint Paul airport where the highly coveted free agent was returning home from his agent’s office in Toronto.

When asked for an update, Parise said he planned to discuss his options with his fiancée and family today and that he has no timetable to choose a team.

Parise also said the money “plays a very small part in” his decision, which makes sense given he’s going to earn a lot of it regardless.

According to the happy couple’s wedding page, Parise’s fiancée is from Minnesota, so feel free to wonder if that gives the Wild an advantage.

And yes, this is what it’s come to – wedding pages.
