Indications point to Suter not going to want to go East, so I doubt Pittsburgh is really a final destination spot for him, unless they're able to offer him considerably more than Detroit or any other team.

Minnesota could be a dark horse if they could land Suter AND Parise. They'd get to play together and Minnesota pursuing both could convince them that Minnesota was serious about becoming a playoff team.

Ryan Suter may wait until after July 1 to make his decision in free agency.



Jun 29, 2012 - [/size]Defenseman Ryan Suter is one of the big time unrestricted free agents set to hit the market on Sunday, but he may keep the hockey world waiting on his ultimate decision.According to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Nashville Predators defenseman could wait beyond July 1 to announce his decision, and he won't meet with teams on the day free agency opens.]

How stupid....it aint a hard decision....everyone is gonna offer you $7M-$9M dollars average, you just have to decide which offer to take....I know you don't want to make the wrong decision, but you just got to look at what's better for you. In Detroit you will be #1 on the Blueline, make just as much money here than there, you have superstars to play with here (none with noodles for brains) and you have a more consistent winning tradition and playoff appearances...The better coach, the better goalie, he is your Team USA teammate as well, the better owner...hindsight is always 20/20 but don't hols up anyone, because whichever team you go to, the others want to go on to plan B and if you delay then those plan B's will be gone....don't hold up either team, make a decision July 1st so the other's can move on....

I for one will be PISSED if Suter decides to wait a few days as the Garrison's get swooped up (not that he is a replacement for Suter, but is a backup plan) and then he chooses a different team leaving us with Quincey and Kindl to round out the top 6....HIGHLY PISSED!

Here's a couple interesting tidbits concerning Parise and Suter.

Report: Pittsburgh’s offer for Parise — “many years between $7-8 million”

The Ryan Suter sweepstakes will likely drag into next week

We can offer Parise what Pittsburgh reportedly offered him. Holland just needs to find an angle to show Detroit would be a better fit for him.

These reports out of Pittsburgh are so infuriating. It feels like some dude is making a move on a girl you are into. Not cool.

Well then if Holland is serious, he'll just have to up that to $8M-$9M....longer contract...front loaded so he is making $10M-$11M a year for over half the contract... What Mr.I wants, Mr.I gets....all he has to do is feel slighted by Shero and the Pit owner and "Badaboom!" Parise will be his....along with Suter.

IMO, though I could care less if Parise does not come here. Suter is more important, then Holland can focus on the Doan's around the league... besides if Holland lands Nash, we'll be saying Parise? Parcheesee? Pepperoni? Pimples? Who?


BTW, it's nice that an "offer" leaked out, can anyone say tampering?

I didn't say I could care less either way...I would love him to be here, but if he doesn't then so be it. What can I do? If Holland can pull off a Nash blockbuster that would be even better IMO, or just as impactfull. Even if he doesn't, he could use some of that cash to entice Shane Doan here...or similar. They may even fit better with the players we have....there is only one Zach Parise, but he may not be the one to put us over....put it this way, if we land him and lose out on Suter I will be more upset than if it were opposite...tons more!

I don't see Holland 'waiting around' for Suter to make a decision only to find all the "plan Bs" are signed somewhere else and Suter decides to re-sign with Nashville, leaving us with $20+ million and no players.

If the reports are true, Suter isn't going to be wearing the Red Wings jersey next year.

I'd be much happier seeing Holland trade for Bouwmeester and/or Yandle than overpay Suter. The free agent market is thin on defense, but we're lucky that their just happens to be a couple good d-men out there with affordable contracts dangling out there for trade.

Really? Hes getting 6.6 million and has not been even worth half that since he joined the Flames.

P.S.

Jimmy D just said on FAN590 the Wings plan to spend to the salary cap, so I am abit comforted.

I'd rather see Detroit go after Garrison , as opposed to trading for Jay Bouwmeester. If Suter wants to wait around, f uck him then. Don't wait around while all the other options go elsewhere.

Because of Bouwmeester's cap hit I don't want the Wings to trade for him to be honest.

I thought everyone was going to Pittsburgh guaranteed. I mean, according to all the hockey journalists, EVERYONE wants to play with Crysob. So much so that they'd sign for a buck!

I think the fact that Illitch and Chelios went to visit Suter and not Holland indicates he's likely to sign with us. If Holland has directed his attention at Parise, even though our #1 need is a defenseman, I'd say Holland is confident Suter is already in the bag. Suter will dutifully hear out all the pitches from all the teams, take a few days, and make a decision by mid-week I bet.

I am a little worried by Holland thinking Parise is the harder nut to crack, though. Hopefully he can snag him, too.

Yandle would be perfect fit... but I say no to Bouwmeester (only because of his contract)...

TSN is reporting that Parise is seeking a 12 million dollar SIGNING BONUS, with an ADDITIONAL 12 million bonus One Year from now. So that would be plus/minus 30 million in one year on one player? If that is true, NO THANK YOU.
