If Suter goes, five potential replacements for Preds

Sunday is the start of NHL free agency and for the Nashville Predators that means that All-Star defenseman Ryan Suter, whom the team drafted seventh overall in 2003 and who has played for the Preds for the last seven seasons, is no longer their exclusive property. Preds general manager David Poile has not given up hope of re-signing Suter, but Suter, who ranked third in the NHL...

Red Wings fans make free agent recruiting vid

With July 1st right around the corner (Sunday for those scoring at home), NHL front offices are gearing up to make their pitches to free agents. Hunting season starts then and free agents are “free” to begin signing with teams. The two biggest fish in the unrestricted free agent sea are New Jersey Devils winger Zach Parise and Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter. Naturally...

Why Nashville Can Live Without Suter

As the minutes tick by and the days count down until free agency begins Sunday morning, the city of Nashville is starting to feel like they are living their daily lives in a sauna, and not just because the temperature is beginning to spill over into triple digits. Ryan Suter has the entire organization at a standstill, waiting to figure out if he will return to the only team he has...

VIDEO: Wings fans look to recruit Parise and Suter by way of creative guilt

With the likes of Lidstrom and Stuart gone, the Wings are entering a very exciting yet potentially stressful free agent period that begins this weekend on July 1st. This offseason the obvious prizes for not only the Wings but a small handful of other teams are Nashville blue liner Ryan Suter and New Jersey forward Zach Parise. During the free agent process though many fans might...

Wild submit offers to Parise, Suter

The Minnesota Wild say they have submitted offers to free-agent stars Zach Parise and Ryan Suter and signed Zenon Konopka and Torrey Mitchell. The Wild tweeted the news on Sunday, when 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...

Via Michael Russo Ryan Suter won't be doing anything the first day of free agent: Re: Suter, talked to Neil Sheehy 2 days ago. He'll be in Intl. Falls; Suter at farm in Wisconsin. Mtgs won't happen Sunday #mnwild #nhl — Michael Russo (@Russostrib) June 29, 2012     @TPBderek Suter is not planning to meet with any teams sunday, I'm told...

Dennis Wideman cashes in, other D-men applaud

The Calgary Flames acquired the free agent negotiating rights to defenseman Dennis Wideman and gave him a five-year deal worth $26.5 million. Cha-ching! We all knew that pending free agents Ryan Suter and Matt Carle would cash in this summer, but this generous deal reaffirmed the high market for proven defensemen. The signing served also fair warning to NHL general managers to lock...

Wild likely to pursue big-name free agents

ST. PAUL, Minn. NHL free agency begins in four days, which means Minnesota Wild general manager Chuck Fletcher might be getting his fishing equipment ready. Despite having several young prospects on the verge of making the Minnesota roster, Fletcher hasn't shied from saying the next step for the franchise is reeling in the "big fish," the superstar already at the...

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...

Other free agent defensemen of interest

We’ve already covered some of the more intriguing players that will be available via free agency, but it doesn’t appear likely that the big-ticket guys like Zach Parise and Ryan Suter will end up in New York.  The 2012 free agent class is extremely thin, but at the draft last weekend GM Glen Sather confidently stated the team would still be “fairly aggressive” in free agency...

Justin Schultz sweepstakes begin

The June 25th deadline has come and gone and as expected, Anaheim was unable to sign defenseman Justin Schultz to an Entry Level contract, meaning he’ll be a free agent on July 1st. Schultz, 21, may actually be the most hotly pursued of all the free agents this summer because unlike Zach Parise and Ryan Suter, Schultz will be relatively affordable. Schultz is in line to make a...

Dangerous dithering

From my phone, from lovely Community Mental Health of Oakland County (for a routine appointment)...As Paul posted below, the Minneapolis Star-Tribune’s Michael Russo is reporting that Ryan Suter may not entertain offers on Sunday at all, and I can’t help but think that such a plan is incredibly foolhardy at best. Yes, Suter is the premier defenseman available, but especially...
