Well Suter is definitely better defensively, but I don't know if he's 2 million dollars better defensively. He's certainly no better (or much worse) offensively.


Yandle will put up more pts but I would rather just shell out the cash to get Suter than give up assets for Yandle.

Agreed. These premadonnas are a diamond dozen. It's a doggy dog world out there so these kids shouldn't be taking stuff like this for granite.


I saw what you did there...
Uhh...you might want to duck!

And Suter has a much stronger defensive game.... no brainer.

Per Bob McKenzie

26 NHL teams have expressed interest in UFA dman Justin Schultz, a shortlist of 5, give or take a team or two, likely by this afternoon.


No teams invited yet to meet/present/offer Schultz but EDM for sure and quite likely VAN have management people in TOR waiting for chance.


Schultz can't formally sign contract until Sunday July 1 but I'd be surprised if he hasn't picked his new team before then.


"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

It appears Holland has said that he will guarantee Schultz a roster spot. Come on Kenny! That's more like it!

Interesting...this article says makes it sound like Burke was given a chance to sign Schultz during the draft but didnt. Hopefully that means he isnt interested in Toronto.

yes, if Schultz chooses Detroit, he will be given a top 6 spot....it will be his to lose, despite what some users think. Holland has to negotiate tough and be shrewd enough to get what he feels he needs....and sell Detroit in the best way he knows how... Smith and Schultz will be tremendous together!

Even though they both played together in college, I'd be surprised if they were a pair in Detroit. First, they both play the same time of offensive game. Second, I don't see Babcock putting two rookies on the same pairing.

GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

"The Badgers program has produced impending NHL free agent Ryan Suter along with fellow defencemen Ryan McDonagh, Jake Gardiner and Red Wings prospect Brendan Smith, whom Holland said he wouldn’t have a problem seeing in the opening night lineup next season along with Schultz."

I had no idea that Ken Holland was the Executive Vice President, General Manager, and now Head Coach of the Detroit Red Wings. Thank you very much for illuminating me about who creates the lineups.

WTF? So guaranteed top minutes in Detroit is not enough? Well, this guy has officially went from one of the most wanted players to the most hated...Here's to a a garbage career!

I got this eerie feeling we are going to be disappointed all off season........just a feeling...


Well here's hoping it goes the way of Brunnstrom, some big fish in a small pond who's in for a rude awakening. It would definitely be pretty sweet to see him begging for a pro try-out in a few years. In retrospect he was probably bad news the second he felt like he was too good to play with All-Stars, Olympians, MVP's, and Stanley Cup Champions like Getzlaf, Ryan, Hiller, and Perry.

I wish I knew where Ted was getting this information. Oh well I think it will be better in the short term for the Wings to give minutes to a proven defenseman. I think Smith is going to be the better Badger at the end of the day.
