Free agent winger Zach Parise is not ready to decide whether to sign with the Penguins, or any other team.
During a meeting with reporters late this afternoon in suburban Toronto, Parise said, "I'm getting closer but haven't made a decision. I haven't set any deadlines."
New Jersey, the team for which he has played his entire career, is the only club he identified as being in the mix for his services.
All indications are that the Penguins are, as well.
The serious contenders for Parise actually appeared to grow today, when Chicago turned up in the mix.
There is no indication yet of whether the Penguins' other top free-agent target, Nashville defenseman Ryan Suter, will pick a team today.
