Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

Watch the language, dude.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

Maybeeee Tootoo and Suter are BFF's and he will sway Ryan to come to the Wings!

Seriously though, have a great feeling about the Wings landing him. The thought of it makes me all SKLDJSJGSKDJGSG!!

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.


Honestly, this is the only thing that makes sense at this point. Signing forwards like Holland did yesterday leads me to believe that he's out of the Parise sweepstakes and focusing on a multi-player trade for one big fish (I.E. Nash, Ryan). It's likely gotta be guys like Franzen and/or Fil that will be heading out the door to make it happen.

Coupled with Suter signing here and I'm more than happy with the offseason.

Sidenote: While Tootoo is a f***, he does bring a level of physicality that we've been missing for a while. Obviously, I would've loved for it to have been another tough guy that didn't play as dirty, but atleast Tootoo can chip in offensively.

As for Sammy, he's a poor-man's Hudler plug to fill out the roster when the aforementioned trade goes down.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

I believe they did submit one for both anyway IIRC.

Agreed.

At 1st my thoughts were "typical Holland" - however as you've pointed out he may be looking for some respectable replacements for guys like Filppula/Franzen who may be "in play" as part of a trade; I'm thinking Ryan from Anaheim.

Personally I would've preferred Prust over Tootoo...That said - Tootoo does play a hard grinding game, and will create alot of havoc around the net which is something we've been lacking on a consistent basis.

Tootoo will be an instant fan favorite in Detroit; a big hit, or a scrap in his 1st game as a Red Wing will make many of us (myself included) forget about the fact that he was a Pred for so many years.

Honestly :shocking:? I'd trade Franzen and something else for Ryan, but two legit top-six forwards and a 1st for Bobby Ryan? Just because he is younger and a bit better goal-scorer than Mule?

Ryan > Franzen, Ryan > Filppula (for now at least), but Ryan is not worth both and a first. Not by a long shot...
