#2313934 Suter Watch: Decision today, down to Wings/Wild

Posted by DesertWing on 03 July 2012 - 06:58 PM

How exactly can they be expected to research neighborhoods and schools on that many markets when they don't even know where the serious offers are coming from?

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.

Assuming L.A. wins the Cup, it's Quick without a doubt.

#2198078 Holland saving $ to make a push for Weber?

Yeah, maybe you could quote it for us?

The Detroit Red Wings aren't expected to spend much more this offseason, not that they've committed much to the future at all. And there's good reason for that. The Detroit News' Ted Kulfman writes, "Next season's potential unrestricted free agent group is so good. Absolutely loaded, actually. While this free-agent class one had a bunch of depth players, next year's is filled with difference makers worth spending the extra millions."

The Wings could make a really big splash next offseason because they have no free agents they'll have to pay huge salaries, except maybe Nicklas Lidstrom -- if he decides to come back. If he doesn't, though, there are several elite free agents they could pay with that money, including Zach Parise, Brent Burns, Patrick Sharp and -- perhaps most intriguingly -- Shea Weber. Losing both Brian Rafalski this season and potentially Lidstrom next season could make them an ideal destination for the 2010-11 Norris Trophy finalist.

If it's simply about which city he likes best, I'd pick Montreal too. No offense to Detroit or Pittsburgh, but it's no contest.

If it's about being on a Stanley Cup contender, I'd rank them 1. DET 2. PIT 3. MTL .
