The Latest On Parise And Suter

via Michael Russo tweets,

Just talked to Parise. His agents are still talking to ‪#njdevils‬, so no guarantee yet he becomes a free agent Sunday (cond)

If Parise becomes free agent, he said it’s possible teams would meet w him at his agents’ offices starting Sun. (ala Richards)

Re: Suter, talked to Neil Sheehy 2 days ago. He’ll be in Intl. Falls; Suter at farm in Wisconsin. Mtgs won’t happen Sunday

Back to Parise, after talking to couple teams, nobody’s been given ground rules on where/when to meet. That could happen later today

If that’s the case, it looks like Sunday could be a slow day of signings. Big boys have to move first, then the rest follow.

No need. They both know they’re going to detroit.

Might players wait a few extra days to see how CBA negotiations are going first?

I wouldn’t suggest it. Even as an optimist who thinks there won’t be a lockout, I don’t think the new CBA is going to be better for the playoffs than the current one. I’d rather bank on getting a better contract now that may possibly be rolled back but otherwise grandfathered than come to find out I should have signed by retirement deal while they were still legal.

Wouldn’t this be tampering?

Contracts under the current CBA are very, very simple.  Mostly filling in boxes.  Not saying that there haven’t been breaches of the July 1 kickoff to the league year, but truly the time involved in working out the terms is pretty minimal compared to with the contracts in the other major NA sports.
