Wild Still Considered by Parise, Suter
The Minnesota Wild have offered contracts to top free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. Wild General Manager Chuck Fletcher confirmed the offers yesterday but would go into more detail. Zach Parise is fielding offers from numerous teams and reportedly narrowed his list to 4 teams late last night. The four are Minnesota, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia and Detroit. A decision from Parise is expected today. Suter is reportedly being pursued by Minnesota, Detroit and Nashville. A decision from Suter may take longer.
The Wild signed free agent centers Torry Mitchell and Zenon Konopka Sunday. Mitchell is considered a 3rd line center/wing who had 19 points for San Jose in 2011-2012. Konopka led the NHL in penalty minutes in 2009-2010 and 2010-2011.
