The man is in full-on Prince Fielder mode. We've got more cap space available to sign Parise and Suter than anyone else does. Illitch is going to get them. He wants one more championship. He wants it right now. He doesn't care if he has to overpay. He's going to top any offer any other team is going to make. It might not be what's best for us in the long run necessarily, but it is what's going to happen.

Still 3.5 mil to mess around with..

Zach Parise ($8.000m) / Pavel Datsyuk ($6.700m) / Johan Franzen ($3.955m)

Gustav Nyquist ($0.875m) / Darren Helm ($2.125m) / Todd Bertuzzi ($2.075m)
Danny Cleary ($2.800m) / Justin Abdelkader ($0.866m) / Patrick Eaves ($1.200m)

I believe it was 13 years at $100 million. No details or from who.

Most nights, my posts are brought to you by some sort of IPA and a heaping dose of sarcasm.

It's one of those constants in life, like the sun rising in the east & setting in the west. You can no more change one than the other.
