Hey guys, I have been constantly just googling nhl rumors waiting for them to sign. It sounds like Parise may announce his tonight but its unlikely. Parise will prolly chose either the Wild or Penguins. It doesn't look good at all for the wings to get him. My guess is he signs with the Penguins. Suter isn't going to announce his choice until Tuesday but it does sound like he will choose the Wings! :clap:
It also sounds like if the wings do in fact miss out on Parise, Rick Nash or Alexander Semin will be our plan B.
Wings vs. Penguins in the finals!
Are Suter and Parise going to the same team? It seems like one is waiting for the other to sign.
Eklund @ hockeybuzz - No Suter decision tonight.
I really really really want Shane Doan. With all of our forwards though that seems incredibly unlikely at this point. I'm just praying he does not go to Pittsburgh. Then I would have to hate him.
Another day of hitting the refresh button. The longer it takes, the worse I feel about this whole thing. I have a bad feeling...
Someone mentioned them both going to the same team. If that happened, I would be so mad at hockey.
no doubt, this is getting ridiculous. I can't remember the last time 2 big name free agents took this much time to decide. Twitter is best to keep up with the news or no-news, hopefully we can move on today and put this all behind us no matter which way they decide to go. Honestly, I don't care if we get Parise or not; I'd almost prefer we didn't just because i don't think he's gonna be worth the price tag he's gonna get. It also sounds like we are in on Semin reguardless of what happens with Parise which i think is a good move. He's gonna be a lot cheaper, his current offer i believe is around 4 years and 25 mil.
I don't see anything about Suter, just that Parise should have a decision. You think we as Wings fans are frustrated, how would you like to be a Devils or Preds fan. There is ultimately only going to be one, or two happy teams. Depending on what they ultimately sign for, we may be happy we didn't get them. No sense crippling the team for two players.
^Agree, I don't think its good to get into the business of handing out too many 100+Million dollar deals. I already am starting to dislike our deal with Zetty, these kind of deals never look good on the middle/back half.
I'm still dissapointed we didn't go after Parenteau, I think he was a great pick up for the Avs and at a great price. Definitley worth the 16 million.
