Chicago_blackhawks_v_a17c
Follow me @jaeckel I heard from a couple of sources late yesterday. First, I would not expect a Niklas Hjalmarsson trade today, but that possibility is not off the table. The Hawks will make an attempt to land Ryan Suter on Sunday. If they succeed, Hjalmarsson will likely be dealt in short order. That said, where until yesterday I felt the odds of the Hawks' geographical argument for S...

So it all comes down to Suter

Dominoes have fallen over the last month, and the biggest domino remains: Ryan Suter. Let the waiting game begin.

Detroit Red Wings upgrade front lines

Will the Red Wings land defenseman Ryan Suter as an unrestricted free agent? Perhaps, but it appears the franchise will have to wait until Monday for that decision.In the meantime they altered their chemistry up front: They brought back old friend Mikael Samuelsson with a two-year, $6 million deal. He is classic Detroit player: Skilled and versatile.To add some sandpaper, the Red...

Suter, Parise sort through offers

Ryan Suter and Zach Parise chose to take time to sort through offers from a slew of suitors on the first day of NHL free agency. ''I don't expect a quick decision,'' Suter's agent, Neil Sheehy, wrote in an email Sunday to The Associated Press. Parise, meanwhile, said he thinks he'll make a decision by Monday after not signing a deal to stay with New...

Wild submit offers to Parise, Suter

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) The Minnesota Wild say they have submitted offers to free-agent stars Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. The Wild tweeted the news on Sunday, shortly after the free-agent market opened. General manager Chuck Fletcher and owner Craig Leipold have promised that the Wild planned to be aggressive this summer to try to get the team back to the playoffs after a four-year...

What If Nashville Signed Suter And Parise?

from Jeremy K Gover of Section 303, The prizes of this free agency class are defenseman Ryan Suter and forward Zach Parise. Some think it will take roughly $9 million to sign each player. Using that number, let’s take the best case scenario and say the Preds sign both (again, purely as an example). That’s a whopping $18 million tied up in just those two players. But guess who’s...

Destinations For Parise And Suter

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN, The offers were numerous for Zach Parise and Ryan Suter on Sunday, so it should surprise no one that they needed at least a day to collect their thoughts. Parise got offers from the likes of Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Detroit, Minnesota, Los Angeles, Carolina and Dallas among other teams, while keeping the dialogue open with New Jersey. By the end of...

Parise, put simply by TSN’s Bob McKenzie: Monday, just like Suter

Well here’s the news you were probably not waiting for, Wings fans. In addition to Ryan Suter not deciding until tomorrow, TSN’s Bob McKenzie reports that the Red Wings’ other main target will take his time, too: Zach Parise’s decision will not come until tomorrow. Has narrowed the field to a select group and will decide Monday.

Suter, Parise keep busy Wings waiting

It was not the major splash that Red Wings fans were hoping for, but with the signing of former Wings forward Mikael Samuelsson, former Nashville agitator Jordin Tootoo, Swiss scoring sensation Damien Brunner and former Maple Leafs goalie Jonas Gustavsson, Detroit was certainly active on Day 1 of free agency. Many players switched teams on Sunday, but the two top free-agent targets...

Parise and Suter hit the market

Let the bidding begin. Zach Parise and Ryan Suter had a long list of suitors hoping to sign them when NHL free agency started Sunday afternoon. Detroit coach Mike Babcock was part of a Red Wings contingent in the Toronto area to make a pitch to Parise, the top forward available, and his agent, Wade Arnott. ''We're going to get in the mix with him and see what we can...

Zach Parise, Ryan Suter in No Rush As NHL Free Agency Gets Off to Underwhelming Start

In less than six hours after the opening of the free agency period on Sunday, 50 players around the NHL had landed new deals. Yet the first day of free agency still couldn't shake the feeling of being colossally underwhelming. There was activity, sure, but none of the marquee names are on the move, yet. That may be largely because there aren't many marquee names on the market...

John Jaeckel: Quick UFA Morning Update

Ha, my power's been out for 2 days, and I've gone into Full McGyver Mode to try to keep you all informed today. Latest I have is the Hawks will go in big on Ryan Suter today. A source told me last night, although I theorized otherwise yesterday, the club will likely not go in big on Marty Brodeur, who my source believes is still likely to re-up in NJ. Otherwise,I would...

Peter Chiarelli Expects Bruins to Be 'Quiet' in Free Agency This Summer

WILMINGTON, Mass. -- The annual free agent frenzy is set to open on Sunday, but don't expect the Bruins to get involved in the bidding. While other teams will line up for the chance to woo the likes of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter with huge contract offers on July 1, Boston general manager Peter Chiarelli doesn't anticipate the Bruins joining the fray. "My gut is telling...

Bill Meltzer: Meltzer's Musings: Free Agent Poker, Leighton

Let no one say that the Flyers are not being aggressive in the free agent market. They are in the midst of a high-stake game of free agent poker designed to either land one of the two biggest names on the market -- Zach Parise or Ryan Suter -- or else to drive the price so high for rival teams (especially Pittsburgh) that whichever team(s) signs the players will be compelled to take...

Red Wings go into overdrive to recruit top targets, are willing to ‘fly all over the country’

Holy crap. I read it and I didn’t believe it, and now I’m gonna read it again, per MLive’s Ansar Khan: New Jersey forward Zach Parise and Nashville defenseman Ryan Suter are the top two free agents in a thin class. The Red Wings will make a big push for both. Owner Mike Ilitch and team advisor Chris Chelios were scheduled to fly to Madison, Wis., to meet with Suter at his...

Matt Karash: Part 6: Evaluating the free agent options - forwards

This is an exciting time of year for people who like to play pretend GM or GM predictor. The Canes possibilities are all over the board heading into the free agent frenzy. History would say that the Canes already made their big move with Jordan Staal. But the local beat writer has mentioned Ryan Suter since then. And Rutherford has vaguely mentioned adding another forward...
