It's Day 3 of the NHL free agent period, and still the two biggest fish remain available. Zach Parise and Ryan Suter are still unsigned, but the Canes appear to be out of the running for both. What's the hold up? Is Parise trying to get more bonus money out of New Jersey? Is Suter waiting to see if Nashville can make it happen with Parise before returning to the Predators? One thing is for sure, we are all ready for the dominoes to start falling.
In Hurricanes related news it appears as if JR is still going hard at Rick Nash. Aaron Portzline (@aportzline) who covers the Blue Jackets has confirmed that JR and the Canes continue to make a big push for Rick Nash. Nothing seems to be eminent on that front yet as all teams remain in the #PariseWatch.
Stop by and join the conversation. Who signs today? Does Semin finally find a new team? Has Winnipeg gone crazy by offering Olli Jokinen a 2 year $9M deal? Sacrebleu! what were the Montreal Canadiens thinking in the Carey Price extension?
