When Ryan Suter signed with the Minnesota Wild yesterday, most assumed Matt Carle was “Plan B.”The Nashville Predators better have a Plan C.Suter’s departure leaves a void in the Nashville defense corps in which no Predator prospect — at least this season — is ready to fill. Carle was believed to be the best option to replace Suter as their numbers were similar, they’re both left hand shots and they’re even the same age. Unfortunately, Carle signed with the Tampa Bay Lightning last night, taking him off the market and leaving the remaining free agent class pretty thin on the blueline.If General Manager David Poile choses to go the free agent route, there are only a couple names that would be suitable short-term solutions. (And we use “suitable” loosely).Carlo Colaiacovo At 29 years old, he’s in the prime of his career but has mainly spent time with struggling franchises. After being drafted 17th overall by the Toronto Maple Leafs back in 2001, Colaiacovo never fully realized his pot...

Independence Day is a time for celebrating the United States with BBQ and family. Nashville’s prized unrestricted free agent, Ryan Suter, made a statement of just how important family is when he announced that he had signed a 13-year deal with the Minnesota Wild on Wednesday. Suter said goodbye to the Predators after 9 years in the organization.
Nashville’s General Manager David...
While the Rick Nash trade talks heat up, along with the temperatures in many parts of the country, many teams are dropping out of the Nash sweepstakes, as they are simply fed up with the Columbus Blue Jackets asking price. While it is unknown as to how many teams exactly are still highly involved in the Nash talks, it is known that many teams are through dealing with...
The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms with top free agents Zach Parise and Ryan Suter.
Parise leaves the New Jersey Devils, while Suter leaves the Nashville Predators to join the Wild.
Each player agreed to a 13-year contract, the team said Wednesday. Terms were not immediately announced.
Parise spent seven seasons with the Devils, helping them reach the Stanley Cup finals this...
Zach Parise and Ryan Suter may have finally signed on Wednesday, but that doesn't mean free agency is over. On contrary, those signings should mean even more activity is on the way, as the teams that lost out on the top two players on the market will now be scrambling to salvage something from the next tier of free agents. That won't be easy though, as those pickings are...
The class of the 2012 free agent class is Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. They are both all star capable players who are young enough to remain in their primes. Teams have been chasing them since free agency opened up on Sunday. Today we learn they are both headed to Minnesota. Both players signed 13 year deals worth a total of $98 million. This gives them a salary cap hit...
The Minnesota Wild has had a very productive Fourth of July to say the least.
The Wild has agreed to terms with two of the top free agents in this year's NHL free agent pool. Former New Jersey Devils winger Zach Parise and former Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter both agreed to sign 13 year, $98 million contracts.
Parise, a Minnesota native, spurned the Devils among...
Wednesday was a very frustrating day for Wings fans all over as it was announced that the Minnesota Wild of all teams made the biggest free agent splash by winning the Zach Parise/Ryan Suter sweepstakes.
The Wild, who have pretty much been the definition of mediocre in the National Hockey League broke the bank by signing both players to 13 year contracts worth $98 million dollars...
Given the fact that Columbus Blue Jackets GM Scott Howson wants the moon and stars from teams in the Eastern Conference in any attempt to secure Rick Nash, I’ve never understood why the Red Wings would ever entertain thoughts of paying an even more grossly inflated price to bring the Blue Jackets’ poster boy to their self-proclaimed archrival. Greg “Puck Daddy” Wyshynski...
ST. PAUL, Minn. The Minnesota Wild have won the free-agent sweepstakes.
On a franchise-altering day, several media outlets have confirmed the story first reported by Michael Russo of the Star Tribune in Minneapolis, that forward Zach Parise and defenseman Ryan Suter have each agreed to terms on 13-year contracts with Minnesota, ending the four-day long wait on the two biggest free...
Not only did the Detroit Red Wings visit with UFA defenseman Ryan Suter today, so did the Minnesota Wild.
The Malik Report has been on this story for about the last 4 hours and has all the details.
For his sake, I hope the travel is complete.
Zach Parise and Ryan Suter have officially been off the UFA market for four days. It was speculated that once Parise and Suter signed their respective gargantuan UFA deals, that the UFA market and secondary trade markets would fire up instantaneously. Save for an Illi Jokinen signing in Winnipeg and a Matt Carle deal in Tampa, there has been very little activity across the NHL. There are sever...
The NHL's free agent frenzy has rolled on as usual this summer. Some 78 new contracts had been handed out in the first three days since the signing period began on July 1, and the biggest deals have not even gone down with Zach Parise and Ryan Suter still weighing multiple offers higher than the GNPs of some small countries. On the surface, it's business as usual in the NHL...
