After much speculation on where Zach Parise will land, the saga appears to be coming to an end on Wednesday.
According to TSN's Darren Drager, Parise is expected to announce on Wednesday where he will play in the 2012-13 season..
Parise is according to many the biggest prize of this year's free agent crop. The 27-year-old forward has his pick of where his future lies, with the believed frontrunners including the New Jersey Devils, Pittsburgh Penguins and Minnesota Wild. The Philadelphia Flyers and Detroit Red Wings are also in the mix with some talk that the Chicago Blackhawks are also involved in the bidding war.
Parise has said that money isn't the biggest factor in his decision, so it's fair to wonder if the Devils -- with whom he has spent his entire -- gain an advantage out of that considering their well-publicized financial issues.
Minnesota also might have the edge, with Parise and his fiance hailing from the area. We'll all know the answer soon enough...we think.
