Parise or not...I have a feeling Semin will be here. It'd be nice if they signed all four Suter/Parise/Semin/Schultz. I am wavering from my dream roster until they are not available anymore, but even with Parise and Semin up front and Suter and Schultz in back, the Wings are tons better than last year, offense and defense....


I too don't think they would be able to afford them, not unless they took major discounts...even over on that pens forum a lot of folks were saying that they hope that Shero doesn't pay them too much...a few also seem to think Parise to them, Suter to us which would be fine with me....there are nice plan b options for offense out there. I am still not counting out Doan until he is re-signed in Phoenix or somewhere else. Honestly I think Pit would benefit from Doan too...


While I agree with you that the Wings would be better offensively, defensively they'd take a hit....atleast in the short term. Suter & Schultz are not greater than Lidstrom and Stuart at this moment in each of their respective careers.

That doesn't mean they're not paramount to the Wings' needs right now.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.


"They are the best team in the world. They are a team that can just take over when they want to," Chicago's Patrick Kane said (of the Detroit Red Wings).

Not if they trade Paul Martin and his $5 million contract which they are trying to do. That will give them more money than the Wings. I don't like it at all but Pittsburgh may be a more desirable place to play given the age of their key players.


Actually, no. The Wings would still have more. And also that creates another open hole in the Pens roster and they already have twice as many players to sign than the Wings.

It's really not that feasible for the Pens to do this unless they want to lose Crosby in a couple seasons.

In Detroit, you do NOT wear powder blue jerseys.

I can see Detroit signing Suter to a nice long contract but I don't see Parise coming here and I'm fine with that. I honestly would rather have Kane than Parise

It's not that bad. I got one as a gift about 10 years ago, and I have worn it a couple of times. Just not to anywhere where real hockey fans would be likely to show up. :)

100% agree with you, but I was more stating that I'm not horribly disappointed if we are only able to get Suter and not Parise assuming Brunner ink's the contract. Parise to me is a very desired player to be on the Wings. See sig below. I have a nice menu of players i'd like to see here and Parise is #2 on that list now behind only Suter. I'm trying to not be too greedy and have unrealistic expectations from Kenny. As much as i'd like to see Suter, Parise, Brunner, Prust and Garrison sign here and have Semin, Radulov, Hudler and Franzen play on the same KHL team, not all of those are gonna happen. If we even get Parise and Suter i'll poop my pants and then Brunner is the icing on the cake.


No problem, I gotcha. I'm just saying...Brunner's an NHL virgin, not even guaranteed to make the roster. So, that we've landed him doesn't have me breathing any easier re: us quite possibly losing the Parise sweepstakes.

Don't Toews me, bro!

We want Parise, we need Suter!


Suter only makes Parise look like a want in the same way that a bullet in the face makes curing your lung cancer a want. We NEED both.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I somewhat reluctantly admit to owning one of these, as well as a gray one, and I have never worn either of them in public, I don't even know what possessed me to buy then in the first place. My black one, however, is the only jersey that I own that still fits me.

Back on topic, I agree with what some have said regarding Pittsburgh being a slightly more desirable destination than Detroit for free agents, however the fact that we have fewer players to re-sign with more money gives us an edge. If there is any truth to the rumor that they want to play together, it gives even more of an edge, as we can afford them both without having to count on a bottom-dweller taking an albatross of a contract off our hands. All things being equal, I still feel confident that we will sign at least one of them, but the fact that Pittsburgh is publicly talking about being interested is enough to make my stomach churn.

Ryan Suter (D)
Age: 27
2011-12 cap hit: $3.5 million

The skinny:
Detroit, Minnesota and Pittsburgh are probably the three favorite landing spots. It’s still possible Suter could end up back in Nashville, though most believe he’s ready to move on. We probably shouldn’t count out Philadelphia either, despite one report he’s not interested in becoming a Flyer and wants to play in the Midwest.




Mark Spector Sports ‏@SportsnetSpec [URL="https://twitter.com/...916454401"]2:32 PM - 28 Jun 12

The Ryan Suter pursuit will not require teams' attendance, like the [Justin] Schultz interviews, says agent Neil Sheehy. "Ryan will be at his farm in Wisconsin with his phone on. I'll be here in Minnesota."

Only a few more days. IMO it would hurt the Pens long-term to pursue both players,

intersenting article about ryan suter in the tennessean yesterday:

Predators General Manager David Poile

talked to pending unrestricted free agent defenseman Ryan Suter on the phone earlier this week. And according to Poile, Suter’s stance still hasn’t changed. He’s highly likely to go to July 1.


But Poile believes that Suter will circle back to talk with the Predators after he sees what’s out there. It’s unclear if he has received any concrete assurances on this, but you have to think he has gotten some indication from Suter’s camp that he will at least hear from the All-Star before he makes his decision.
