Michael Russo of the Star-Tribune writes on his blog that he chatted briefly with Zach Parise.
He said his agents are still talking to New Jersey and it’s not a guarantee yet he’ll become a free agent at noon ET Sunday.
Mark Spector of Sportsnet tweeted,”news that Martin Brodeur will test UFA market tells us the Devils doesn’t have money to sign Zach Parise either. Bryce Salvador may also look elsewhere.”
Free agency market opens Sunday.
