According to ESPN's "sources," Zach Parise and Ryan Suter are supposed to announce their decisions today as to where they'll sign. The consensus on the twitters seems to be Parise to Pittsburgh and Suter to Detroit. The Red Wings have offered Suter $90 million over 13 years.
These decisions will definitely kick off the free agency period because the second tier guys (Alex Semin, Matt Carle) and trades (Bobby Ryan, Rick Nash) will then come off the board. Hopefully the Wings can pull Suter and then a top forward like Parise, Semin, etc. I'd love to see Suter and a trade for Bobby Ryan.
What're your thoughts?
Would much rather have Parise then Suter. Although it looks bleak now for parise I'm happy with suter and hopefully a trade for either ryan or nash. Thought we would of got parise with him being a local and all but oh well. I like the pickup of Samuelson again also.
Seems like it will be a package deal
Think the Hawks pull in Parise. Think with 14mil guarenteed plus making the fiance happy he dons the Indian
I think Parise is a better player, but our need on D after losing Stuart and Lidstrom this offseason is pretty dire.
Plus, we probably won't have to give up too much for Ryan. Maybe Filpulla and a guy like Franzen?
Newest rumblings seem to be a package deal to the Wild.. that would be... wild.
Would make sense, Parise is a Minnesota native and Suter had a meeting with both Minnesota and Detroit. It isn't over until it's official though.
Expect the Wings to make a big run at Semin if they miss out on Parise.
I'd be plenty happy with Suter but Parise would have been an outstanding pick up.
They both are going to Minny now. Sucks
What are the Wings going to do? Go after Semin? Who's available on D that is near Suters level?
Carle is close. Best available option for sure. Hopefully we don't overpay for him though
