Found June 17, 2012 on Kukla's Korner:
We’ve read and heard about where some of the big names will land when all is said and done, so let’s read your opinion on some of the big names. What team will sign Zach Parise? How about Ryan Suter, will he stay with Nashville or sign elsewhere? Rich Nash is on the trading block by request, where does he go and a pat on the back if you mention the return for Nash. Same goes for Roberto Luongo, what team will trade for Luongo and what will they give up? Will the LA Kings keep Jonathan Bernier until they sign Quick long-term?  If not, where will Bernier be come late September? Bonus question, will the new CBA be in place to start the season on time? Fee free to mention other players as well but do include where they will end up and what will it take to get him.

Nashville losing confidence in re-signing Suter, Detroit still seen as likely landing spot

A couple of weeks back it was reported that impending free agent defenseman Ryan Suter would meet with the Nashville front office in hopes of getting a contract extension. That meeting came and went and according to the Josh Cooper of the Tennessean, Nashville GM David Poile is losing confidence as to whether the two sides can come together on a new deal before NHL free agency begins...

Todd Cordell: Why Ryan Suter will not be a Devil + potential Devils draft targets

Several people over the last few days have asked me about the possibility Ryan Suter signs with the New Jersey Devils if he is available July 1st and Zach Parise doesn't re-sign. Today, I'll answer that and look at a few players the Devils could target with the 29th overall pick next week. - Suter is not going to sign with the Devils if he does test free agency July 1st...

Preds' Suter situation still up in air

For years the foundation provided by goalie Martin Brodeur and defensemen Scott Stevens and Scott Niedermayer made the New Jersey Devils one of the best teams in the NHL because those players ranked among the very elite in the league at their respective positions. At a time when a player on Stevens' par, Detroit's Nicklas Lidstrom, was earning 10.5 million per season, Stevens...

Devils Fan's Desk Spitefully Turned Into Kings Central By Co-Workers

Courtesy of our good friend at The Royal Half, we bring you video of a Devils fan's worst nightmare, save for Zach Parise in Broadway blue. This unlucky soul, Chris, as we know him for now, had the displeasure of coming back from vacation to find his cubicle spectacularly decked out in Kings gear: Now, it probably stands to reason that Chris threw a few playful jabs around...

Red Wings Debate: Alexander Semin or Zach Parise

The Red Wings have money to spend this year, and whether or not they had planned on it, they will be forced to spend money to bring big free agents here once again to put Hockeytown at the top of the list next season to bring home Lord Stanleys Cup. The biggest question on Red Wings fans is not the type of player the Wings need, that’s very common knowledge around the league. They...

The Contract Bachelor: Introducing Suter’s Suitors

On Friday, after many speculations the Predators General Manager David Poile announced that defenseman Ryan Suter would likely be testing the free agency market. Suter becomes an unrestricted free agent on July 1st. It is a rare and interesting occasion when an all-star player such as Suter has an opportunity to really choose exactly where they want to go. In all honesty, every team...

Rick Nash? Meet Zach Parise. Your futures are intertwined!

As Paul already noted, both TSN’s Bob McKenzie and the CBC’s Elliotte Friedman have suggested that the Rick Nash sweepstakes, which is presumably the biggest sup-blot to this weekend’s Entry Dra…I mean draft, may or may not end up reaching its resolution in early July, and the Globe and Mail’s David Shoalts spells out the reason why, with “the reason” going by the name...

Is Luongo Headed To Toronto And Is Sundin A HHOF Lock?

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun (not yet posted) at the Winnipeg Sun, • With Vokoun and Lindback scratched from the list of the available and the Kings’ Dean Lombardi saying “having only one quarterback is dangerous,” that leaves Roberto Luongo as their best goaltending option moving forward to this week’s NHL draft and trade meet. The good news with Luongo is it...

A new potential trade target emerges: Evander Kane

As expected, other options have begun to emerge as potential solutions for the Rangers’ offensive woes outside of Zach Parise and Rick Nash. Parise has already declared his disinterest in signing with the Rangers and Columbus’s asking price for Nash is still through the roof, but there are other players that could help supplement the Blueshirts’ attack. Trade rumors are building...

Here comes the Ryan Suter afternoon blow-up as Preds’ GM Poile suggests Suter will test UFA market

I hate following this sort of thing early on in the process, but Smashville 24/7’s Ryan Porth and the Tennessean’s Joshua Cooper noted the following from Predators GM David Poile, who was speaking to reporters on a conference call after trading Anders Lindback to Tampa Bay: Poile believes [Ryan] Suter will test the market ... Poile says its unlikely he trades Suter’s rights...

Red Wings overnight report: on losing Stuart and Fraser, and Schultz and free agent speculation

If last week’s teasers and subtle message-sending by general managers, player agents and even players themselves who may or may not be playing the media to skirt tampering rules whetted your appetite for pre-draft rumors, you’re going to love this week and weekend. With the Board of Governors meeting on Tuesday, the NHL Awards on Wednesday and the Entry Draf…I mean Draft taking...
