Also, why would Suter and Parise choose to come here? Nashville just proved to be better than us. There are other teams out there that have promise. s***, I think I would go to Edmonton if I were them before Detroit.
To make the team better, a threat? Money? The stability of the organization? The players? There's more that goes through a player's head when making a decision than just "HURR DURR MY TEAM JUST BEAT THEM SO I'M NOT GOING THERE LOLOLOL THEY SUCK I'D RATHER STAY HERE LAWL"
With that said, the wings haven't landed a big name FA since Rafalski and I don't even remember the last one before him. Can't imagine Kenny would get the top 2 in one offseason.
