I never understood that narrative, Suter&parise went to minny because they wanted to play together, every time someone brings up suter and/or parise as evidence that we can't attract free agents I get a bit annoyed.
I like that last part.
Aye, the whole Suter and Parise situation bit us hard. They went to play in Minn for personal reasons and somehow it turned into "ooooooo Red Wings can't attract these guys! Holland lost his touch! Maybe Babcock is the problem!" "Omg did you hear Zetterberg say it's either him or Babcock?" "Datsyuk said he's had enough of Babcock and intends on going to the KHL after 2013!" "Fire Holland!" "Get rid of Babcock!"
All was rubbish. Parise is a born Minnesotan that wanted to play for his home state. We did well this year for market and hopefully we can land another big one next year. I'm hoping Kopitar as Richards moves on.
