Parrish Waived

Another son of Minnesota cast aside by the in-state professional hockey team. As neat as it is to have "one of our own" on the squad, perhaps we should apply a little perspective to their on-ice contributions to-date before we yell ourselves hoarse clamoring for DR to sign another one.

I have nothing against Parrish, and hope he ends up playing hockey if that's what he wants.

I have nothing against Minnesota hockey players, either. But it's difficult to argue with the evidence that they tend to peak somewhere between college and the AHL.

Hey, you guys need blueliners, and you need a Minnesotan. David Tanabe is a free agent.

That's a little joke for ya.

I don't know how to react to this, Nick. Basically I am a little surprised that Mark Parrish got waived, but then again, this hasn't been the best of summers in re-tooling. I know they picked up Marek Zidlicky in a trade, but I am concerned the Wild are taking a step back this upcoming season. Hopefully I'm wrong.
