It is a bit risky but I just find it hard to believe Holland will be able to land both. With Lidstrom possibly retiring Suter should be priority #1.
Going to be interesting to see how Holland plays his cards. It is also possible that Anaheim may only be able to keep one of Perry and Getzlaff, also Crosby will get a monster deal from the Pens and Stall will be getting a raise, Pittsburgh may not be able to afford him. There are also many others in 2013 who are good as well but maybe not Parise caliber.
One thing I am waiting to see play out is in the new CBA there may be an amnesty buyout. Basically you buy a guy out and it doesn't count against the cap, I really, really, hope this happens so Holland can get rid of a terrible contract.
Everything I have heard is that there will be no amnesty buyout provision this time. I wish there was. There may be a lockout at least for the first 2 months next season. No one really knows right now. Now that Donald Fehr is head of the Players Association, Gary will no longer be able to bully them into submission. I think us Wings fans are setting ourselves up (myself included) for severe disappointment if we are unable to get at least 1 of Parise or Suter. All 30 teams in the league will be after both of them. However I think the Wings are one of the favourites for a variety of reasons (cap space, class organization, great owner, committment and history of winning, still excellent star players on the team, etc). We will just have to see what happens. With so many teams locking up their star players to long term deals, it is rare when 2 of the best players in the game become UFAs at only 27 years of age. If Kenny can sign both these players then that is a HUGE infusion of talent and makes a good Wings team a potentially great Wings team. Nick returning for one more season makes it a home run IMO.
