Blackhawks Among Top Candidates for Zach Parise

  By Tony DeFrancesco

Among the plethora of respected sources that have spun the wheels on this rumor is Chris Kuc, Jesse Rogers, David Pagnotta, Rich Chere, and Michael Russo. Although the rumor has it that Chicago and New Jersey are the only candidates in the running, Russo reports that Minnesota is very much still in the mix and Pagnotta notes that the Penguins still have a legitimate shot at landing the highly coveted winger.

Reports have stated that Parise's ransom is as high as $100M deal over 12 years with signing bonuses that equal as high as $24M in the next calendar year.

Not only is the organization working on selling Parise on Chicago, but many of the players have kept in contact with Zach to pitch him on the idea.

The Blackhawks were not big players for Parise on July 1st, but it has been reported that they were kicking tires. In order for Chicago to be in the mix at this time a significant offer must have been made to vault among the top candidates which is strange considering the Blackhawks have been hesitant to pay anyone from the outside higher than core members of the team since they've handed them their new contracts.

With all the information floating around, it's still hard to believe that Parise will ultimately land in Chicago, but the possibility is certainly much more real at this moment.
