    Yah I updated my post as soon as I saw those.
    You need centerman that can play two ways and if they donít play two ways in the end, you canít win, because the guy you are counting on canít get himself on the right side of the puck enough. So sure he can score, he can score but his team loses every night, I didnít know that was the objective. I thought winning was the objective. So if you centers canít play down the middle, and canít play without the puck, you have no chance.

    Kypreos - "Nothing confirmed as it appears Suter will won't make anything official till 2morrow but some on inside say he's leaned toward #Redwings"

    I'm starting to like this Kypreos guy

    That works - 6.7 mil a year. Wasn't Lidstrom making 6.1? Not much more of a cap hit.

    I would love to have him at 6.7.

    yeah, I wouldn't hold my breath on a decision tonight for either Suter or Parise, but rumor is as soon as Parise is signed, Nash trade will be in the works.

    It sounds like Brunner is going to take Hudler's spot.

    Nick Kypreos ‏@RealKyper
    Market was set real early for Parise/Suter 12-13 year deals offered at 90M plus. Incredible to hear #NHL teams willing to go there.

    Who thinks Huds is a big part of a Nash deal?

    Hudler is a free agent...wings don't have his rights anymore.

    I would be shocked if Holland actually offers anything in the realm of what it will realistically take to get Nash. This is the same guy who every deadline says prices are too high, not gonna be any different now. Whatever trade package we put up will get outbid by some team....Holland just hasnt shown in the cap era so far that he's willing to part with multiple higher valued young players/prospects. My gut says we'll end up with Semin, and possibly one of Jagr or Selanne or something like that.

    I went on capgeek, left the current roster, and added some players.
    Abby 1.75
    Quincey 3.25 - the 2 of them total 5 mil
    Brunner 0.925
    Gustavsson 1.5 - was already added on gapgeek
    Suter 6.7
    Nash/Parise 7.8

    That leaves roughly 2.658

    Suter is probably going to take at least like 7.5 and Parise probably a lot more than 7.8. Rumors are that the Flyers offered over 10 million a year for Parise.
