Parise Would Be A Hero In Minnesota

from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,

The Wild can’t offer Zach Parise the chance to play alongside Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin the way the Pittsburgh Penguins can. It can’t offer Zach Parise a rich history of winning the way the Detroit Red Wings can.

What the Wild can offer the New Jersey Devils captain and Minnesota native is a chance to play in front of friends and family, to help mold a sizable corps of prospects set to burst onto the scene and to become a hero to a hockey-crazed market salivating for Parise to take his talents to ... the Twin Cities.

Oh, and the Wild can offer Parise a boatload of dough.

The Wild is ready and willing to do everything it possibly can to try to knock Parise’s socks off when free agency opens Sunday morning at 11 (CT).
