As of Tuesday morning, the entire hockey world is at a standstill waiting for free agent superstars Zach Parise and Ryan Suter to determine where they seemingly wish to play the rest of their careers as each player has massive contract offers that will lock them up for well over a decade.
With several teams interested in his services, Parise plans to look over his options and is expected to come to a decision later on Tuesday.

In addition to that report, ESPN's Pierre LeBrun ran a report that echoed the same sentiment.
Parise was slated to fly back to his native Minnesota on Tuesday, and it wasn't clear when he'd have a decision made, although a source close to him thought sometime Tuesday was a probability.
The Minnesota Wild are assumed to have put together the largest package for Parise in an attempt to bring him home for good. As of Monday night, reports had the team still in the running for his services.
