Tom Gulitti of The Bergen Record got in touch with Zach Parise's agent, Wade Arnott, and the news isn't particularly encouraging if you're a New Jersey Devils fan.

Arnott and Devils GM Lou Lamoriello will probably talk informally during the NHL Entry Draft, but it's unlikely that the two sides will come to agreement this week. In fact, it looks like Arnott will talk to Parise on Monday so that the two of them can formulate a game plan.
