Zach Parise and Ryan Suter may have finally signed on Wednesday, but that doesn't mean free agency is over.

That won't be easy though, as those pickings are...
The two big names when NHL free agency started a little while ago were Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.

Matt Carle is a nice Dman.
Is he 6 years and $5.5 million "nice"?
Thanks to Ryan Suter signing for a king's ransom, the value for puck moving D has been blown through the roof.
Anything Matt Carle can do, Andrej Sekera can do better.
Thats why 've been advocating that Buffalo ship out Reggie for a scorer. ASAP!
