meet with Parise in Toronto, according to Ansar Khan

"Owner Mike Ilitch and team advisor Chris Chelios were scheduled to fly to Madison, Wis., to meet with Suter at his farm, and Holland is expected to be in Toronto to meet with Parise and his agents, according to a source."

Nice!

Meeting with them is one thing, signing them is quite another. Good luck boys, bring home Suter!

general manager Ken Holland said. “Do we need to make a major splash? I don't think so.''



Say what?!

Not gonna get too excited, but this does confirm through all the speculation and rumors that we really are going to make a run to sign both of these guys.

I'll still stand firm in my prediction that we land Suter and Parise resigns as a devil, but we will know more in a couple days. I doubt a deal will be done with either player tomorrow, i'm assuming they are gonna take more than a day to think about their future destination.

I think its just talk... If he didn't want to make a major splash, he wouldnt be headed to Toronto and Illitch/Cheli would not be headed to Madison. Kenny knows he has tons of cap space. He did not become the best GM in the business by being stupid. I trust Ken Holland!

Sounds very encouraging! I hope we can get both signed here long term!!!!
Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

First time I ever heard us sending out a contingent of people to woo free agents. This must be serious. Why don't we send Gordie Howe?

That would be awesome. Best person to send really. Only problem is he technically doesn't work for the organisation so he probably can't be involved in influencing a decision one way or another. Heck if I saw him coming up my drive though as a FA, I'd sign the darn contract before he even made it to the door

I wish Nick would have went with Chelios and Illitch. No one would respect the opinions of Lidstrom more than a guy like Suter. Nick certainly doesn't owe us anything but it would have been a great farewell gesture.

What are the chances of these players being offered a few Little Ceasar locations as a perk?

Sounds like you have a Razr, I've been rocking ICS since January on my Nexus!

On topic, it would be a dream to land both, but like many I want Suter first as we have talent up front.
