Found July 03, 2012 on Nightmare on Helm Street:
Tick Tock.  The waiting is killing me.  Not just for Suter / Parise news, but for my power to be restored.   Haven't had power since Friday.  Life is tough when you live like the Amish.  I've been doing my best to follow Twitter (hey, there IS a use for Twitter!) for updates...but all I've been updated on is that no decision is imminent.   I don't like the feel that I've been getting on Parise and have no idea what to think of Suter's wait.   I'd say if we pick up one the two right now, and get a solid plan B player for the other spot, I'd say it's been a successful free agency.  Even though I'm a few days late, I still figure I'll comment on the other surprising moves that Detroit has made.  Hit the jump for my thoughts while we wait. Jonas Gustavsson:  Can I say called that?  Twice?  Is this proof that Kenny reads NOHS?  I'm going to say it is.   This might be my proudest internet moment.  I couldn't be happier with this move...
