Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

If Pens sign Parise, what are they gonna do when Malkin's contract is up. I for one think Parise is gonna sign here, providing Suter does, I think its gonna be a Kariya/Selanne Avs signing years ago kinda thing.

And if Parise goes to the Pens, then maybe he does wanna be in Crosby's shadow. We'll just steal Malkin when his contract ends, lol


If thats the case hopefully Suter and Parise don't play like Kariya and Selanne did when they were with Colorado! :bag:

Great day so far.
-Inked a potential masked assasin in Brunner for peanuts
- the monster has a ton of untapped potential and with Bedard and our Swedish room, and limited playing time I think hell do great
-Sammy takes alllot of flack around here ... hes still got game. He had a terrible start last year because he had a severe adductor tear repaired. Big body, decent wheels, heavy shot ... yeah hes streaky, but what euro isnt?
-Tootoo - bargain of the day IMO. Imagine him and Adbelkader smashing dmen on the forecheck? Oh, and no more tootoo whistles in Nashville - thank f***!

If there was any question that Detroit was serious this off-season management has shown the fanbase and the free-agent pool that they arentf****** around. If Suter comes Ill be happy with what we've got BUT have a sneaking suspicion another big name top 6 fwd will follow him. Pretty pumped right now.

assuming we re-sign Abdelkader well have two actual physicial forwards and Tootoo can teach Abdelkader to not be a punching bag. I like the signing a lot

If Parise is leaning toward the Pens...well, it's his funeral.

Hell, Parise, Crosby, Malkin

Thats a hell of a line.

Well put. I admit, I think Samuelsson is an overpayment, and Tootoo kind of makes me noxious, but overall, we haven't missed out on the big fish yet, and some good depth signings. In the end, however, it all hinges on the big fish. The concern now is that these were not depth signings, but "instead of", "plan B", or "tweek" signings which Kenny has been doing the last few years.

Get Suter and one good scoring forward and I'll be content. Do that, and it could very well be the best off-season in a decade. Time will tell (and hopefully not too much time).

I really hope that his is not just a rumor and that Suter has decided to come to Detroit we NEED a big Defenseman. I really wanted both Parise and Suter but after the tragedy today I'll settle for just Suter. I just hope we hear something soon I really can't take much more of thise. If the post on here was correct and Parise is a Pen than I really need to go PUKE.

Like I said focus on suter. We can't afford to lose out on the best d in the market. We don't need parise if the cost is too high. Shift our focus to a sniper we can add with pavel. Semin. He's young. Big. Has huge upside and much cheaper then parise he IMO is not worth a hundred million dollar contract.

I almost hate saying this out loud, but to me, it sounds like Suter is coming to Detroit. Holland has made 3 forward signings and hasn't even hinted at a Defensemen. He wouldn't of missed out on Dmen today if he didn't have a feeling Suter was going to sign here. Just sounds like Holland has all his ducks in a row and Suter is on his way here. We still have a ton of cap space even if we throw the bank and Suter, which tells me Holland isn't done upfront either. Keeping cap space incase Parise comes here too. If not, than we have a ton of forwards and cap space we can use to make a trade for a top 6 guy. Possibly a Bobby Ryan or even a Nash trade if the price isn't to steep. Holland has put himself in a situation that allows him infinite possibilities.

Hope you are right. Love reading things that I tend to agree on, makes me feel more at ease.

I would love to get Nash but I don't know how we are going to pry him away from the kings ransom that Columbus wants for him. Are we trading away our entire future players?

Columbus had been horribly run, but over the past year the follies have really been scrutinized at a national and public level. The pressure is really on for their management to do something, which I suspect will lower the Nash price somewhat. Regardless he will be costly to acquire.

I don't think Sammy is an overpayment, really. Hudler will probably get around 4 million and I'll take Sammy over him ANY day. That guy scores some timely goals.

So far I cant complain a bit of overpayment in some cases buth ey its UFA and Canada day so thats to be expected, but the real deciding factor will be if we get Ryan.
