Another day has come and gone with no decision from free agent forward Zach Parise.
Parise remained in Minnesota discussing the situation with his family.
It's believed the Blackhawks, Pittsburgh, New Jersey, Detroit and the Minnesota Wild are the teams still on Parise's list.
As recently as Sunday the Hawks appeared to have no chance at signing Parise, who had 31 goals and 69 points for the Devils last season.
As for free agent defenseman Ryan Suter, he met with officials from the Red Wings and Wild on Tuesday but isn't to make a decision until Thursday. The Hawks appear out of the running for Suter.
