Here’s a great story from Arthur Staple of Newsday, about Zach Parise’s father, J.P. [1]

The dad begins by saying Zach won’t tell him too much because he has a big mouth, then goes on to speculate whether his free-agent-to-be son would like playing for the Rangers and John Tortorella.

Just remembered, not everybody can access Newsday…

So here are the best quotes from J.P. Parise:

“My son has said he’s waiting until the end of the year to decide anything, and that’s what he’s told me, too,” Parise said. “And that’s because he knows I have a big mouth.” …

J.P. Parise has no advice to offer his son about where Zach will end up. J.P. talked to Tortorella in Vancouver at the Olympics in 2010, where Tortorella was an assistant and Parise a key member of the silver-medal winning U.S. hockey squad.

“Zach likes Torts a lot,” J.P. said. “Zach knows how to work, he doesn’t shy away from the discipline part of it. He’d fit right in there.” …

“All I said was, don’t make a decision based on emotion, in the heat of things,” J.P. said. “He’s waited a long time to be in this position . . . He loves the Devils, he loves Pete DeBoer and Lou Lamoriello [2]. There’s time for all these things to be decided.”
