After sending Twitter atwitter late Monday afternoon, free-agent left winger Zach Parise delayed his decision on a team, saying he needed more time to confer with his fiancée and family on where he would take his talents. The Flyers are among the teams that have made offers to Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter, the jewels of this year's free-agent market. Their decisions may be announced Tuesday. Speaking to reporters outside his agent's office in Toronto, Parise said he would return to his Minnesota home and discuss matters with his family.

You can give Team USA coach Peter Laviolette the benefit of the doubt for not playing his top veterans, Mike Modano and Doug Weight, on the same line in the world championships. Yet how do you explain asking Zach Parise, a 20-year-old playing in only his second senior international event, to take a penalty shot with 1 minute, 25 seconds remaining in a tied game? That's what Laviolette did yesterday in an ugly 1-1 tie against Ukraine, which took just nine shots in the game.

Sean Avery cleared waivers yesterday, and the next step for the Dallas Stars is to find a team for the controversial left wing to start playing again. Dallas placed Avery on waivers Saturday. As expected, no team claimed Avery, who signed a $15.5 million, 4-year contract last summer. Avery played only 23 games for Dallas before being suspended six games by the NHL on Dec. 2 for crude comments made about his ex-girlfriends dating other NHL players. A source told ESPN.com last night that Avery is expected to be assigned to the Hartford Wolf Pack of the American Hockey League.
