Still no decision from Suter. Speculation abounds.

I can see them taking their sweet time making the decision of a lifetime but you would think they could cull the herd a bit by this point. People keep saying that they have had only a couple of days to decide and thats BS both knew they were going to be a FA and that they would be able to pick their team. 80m or 100m does it mean anything at that point? Nope. Its about family and where do you want to play.

We need to sign Suter so bad our season depends on it who ever else we get to me is a bonus to me Suter IS A MUST offer him the World if that's what it takes

Suter won't be an issue...13 years, frontloaded contract, #1 defenseman on the team, best defenseman in the league, multiple Norris Trophies while here... Suter will be a Red Wing...

Parise, ya, if we can land him too, super! But if not we could get Nash or Ryan along with Semin and possibly Meuller and things would be rockin!


Here in the Minnesota media (and nationally, too, I guess), there seems to be this theory being accepted as fact that:

If Parise goes to Minnesota --> Suter also goes to Minnesota

But why? Because they're both from the Midwest? Because they played on the U.S. Olympic team? I don't get there could be so much analysis into what Parise wants and what's important to him (right down to discussion of his fiance), but because Suter has indicated he would wait a little bit, we assume that he might do what ever Parise does. How does that make any sense?!

If true, then the two top free agent on the market end up on a Wild team that missed the Playoffs by 14 points, for no reason other than that Parise happened to be born here. I refuse to accept that. Even if superstars in their mid-20's wanted to play for a rebuild (which they almost always don't), I have to think there are better young or rebuilding teams out there than MINNESOTA with money to sign one or both guys.

That extra 20M means a lot to their agents I'm betting. And, make no mistake, these guys are in the ears of both Suter and Parise. Sort of like Wormtongue in The Two Towers.

Ya I'd do colorado if i wanted a young team that had money for both.

Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

All the family s*** should've already been decided. Family preference, schools, etc are all things you can plan ahead for. The only thing to ponder on UFA day is money and actual contract crap which to me shouldn't take this long to go through unless you are going back and forth with teams trying to pump up the dollar figures. Any city they pick they'll be living in millionaireville with top schools so the family thing is a boools*** stall tactic. They knew all along which teams would really be in the running and have probably already reviewed those cities for "living" issues. If we are to believe they need time now to look at houses schools, etc then they are completely unprepared for UFA day IMO. GET ON WITH IT!!!!

Dear Zach,

Please decide soon. Our lives are on hold until you make your decision.

Sincerely,

It's pretty obvious they have a huge offer from some team they really didn't want to go to and are trying to decide if they think they can stomach the place enough to sell their asses to what they consider a s***hole for the remainder of their careers. If they wanted to play for a team that has a decent offer on the table they would have signed by now.

The longer Suter waits to sign, the harder it is for me to believe its going to be with the Wings.

I got a bad feeling about Suter. I can only come to the conclusion that he is trying to end up where Parise ends up.

It's frustrating to wait, but I can understand them taking their time. They don't want to be in a Rick Nash-type situation 3 from now with a lame duck organization (potentially Devils and Wild). It's a big commitment, and considering those factors you'd think they would play even more into Detroit's favor -- even moreso than Pittsburgh, which has a massive Malkin contract looming in two years that will be much tougher to handle than Datyuk's expiring contract.

Wow, that's a "New Media" nugget of information.

All the reporters and pundits etc are trying to get information about possible suitors meeting with Suter, and then someone goes "outside the box" and finds a flight plan for a plane registered to the Red Wings parent company flying to Madison Wisconsin.

The plot thickens, ladies and gentlemen...
