The people being this angry is ridiculous. They can take as much time as they need. It's their life for the next 10 years they are deciding on. They don't need to rush a decision to appease you, or me, or anybody else for that matter.

Wouldn't it be something if he re-signs with NSH and did this just to mind-f**k everyone? I don't think that's the case, but it'd set off more fireworks than the 4th of July among some NHL fandoms.

That said, both he and Parise should be allowed some time to decide as it's likely their only shot at FA. The numbers being thrown are mindboggling, but I'd love to be in their shoes. As fans, some people need to chill a bit. It's just unfortunate that everything else seems to be on hold in the NHL as a result.

I also wonder if the new CBA is going to address the FA process in reaction to the Suter and Parise situations.
It's pronounced "Zim" not "Exim". Aw heck with it, just call me Scott.

It's not about not knowing where they want to play... They are re meeting and negotiating new deals to get more money and it's working every time they meet a team again there contract is more money. I think they both know where they want to go and are leaving everyone in the dark so they take the team of their choosing to their max $$ wise

If it's true that the Wild contingent picked up Suter's agent on the way to visit him, that does not look at all good. I'd love to be wrong on this.

Please tell me there's something I don't understand about how these things work. :unhappy:

"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.

He was already in Minnesota, so its not like they made a special trip to get him. Honestly, I can't see him signing with the Wild over us. Enter into a long term contract with a mediocre team? I know that maybe there's this feeling that "Hey I can be a pioneer and make this franchise great", but I bet Rick Nash felt that way a few years ago too. Nothing worse than watching a talented player waste away the prime of his career on a bad team.

There is no doubt in my mind that researching neighborhoods and schools has nothing to do with waiting to make a decision. If a guy picks a team, he calls up the Captain or another one of his teammates and asks them where to live. It's not like these guys are on a team that is relocating. If Suter or Parise signs with Detroit, they call one of the Red Wings with a wife and kids and get the info in 15 minutes. Shoot, if my company wanted to relocate me to another office they'd have resources available to me to help choose where to live.

That's a good point.

still, as anxious as I am to hear an answer, I can't really fault a guy for taking three whole days to decide on a deal that largely determines what the next decade of his life will be like.

Then again, neither Suter or Parise have ever been a Red Wing, therefore they don't owe you or Mr.Illitch anything at all.

These two also wouldn't swear in every second word or calling out players for taking their time. Its not a crime to take time and trying to get the best possible contract.

Ok if Suter doesn't sign then we should all blame this guy and his poor negative energy. Go do some actitivities to harness your chi, haha.

We only offered Suter 90m for 13 years? A cap hit of 6.9m? Seriously?
