Capitals Free Agency III (Capital Hillen Edition)
Good try, good effort. Good try, good effort.

Langway 07-04-2012 11:11 AM


After an impressive maneuver Tuesday to get itself in front of free-agent Ryan Suter, the Wild has agreed to terms on a 13-year contract with defenseman Ryan Suter, sources say.

But the Wild’s not done in its attempt to shake a hockey-mad market into a frenzy.

According to sources, the Wild was working on agreeing to terms with Minneapolis-born Zach Parise on a 13-year deal.

Suter to MIN.

Dr John Carlson 07-04-2012 11:12 AM

Parise will definitely be in Minnesota then.

NobodyBeatsTheWiz 07-04-2012 11:13 AM

Well, Russo is pretty damn reliable.

Guess it's on to the trade market for defense.

Jaybo come on down.

@The_Creasy: #Penguins are livid. Verbal agreement broken. It happens. Suter + Parise's wife seem to have convinced Parise to join him in Minnesota.

Puts a smile on my face for the first time this FA :)

Koized 07-04-2012 11:22 AM

Is the Creasy reliable?

Langway 07-04-2012 11:22 AM

Parise to MIN done as well. Great news for that fanbase.

HAHAHAHAA pens are crying. Not happy we didnt get suter or parise, but both went to the west and the pens screwed up. Great day lol

Dr John Carlson 07-04-2012 11:23 AM

Well, Detroit is in trouble now.

butters8814* 07-04-2012 11:24 AM

Will gmgm resign semin? Or has that ship sailed away.

pman25 07-04-2012 11:25 AM

Awesome for the Wild. Thank god none of them went to the pens, Minnesota is gonna be sick!

Liberati0n* 07-04-2012 11:25 AM

Penguins: :biglaugh:

Good for the Wild. It's a huge loss for Detroit to miss out on Suter.

IkeaMonkey* 07-04-2012 11:25 AM

So, with Minnesota as my closest geographically placed team to me, I'm jumping on their bandwagon as this team is filled with stupid fat **** worthless **** bag mother crap ass butt nuggets who do nothing but eat and coach and swear and fat ****.

God damn Boudreau. God damn McPhee.

Brave Sir Robin 07-04-2012 11:25 AM

If Parise and Suter got so much attention, I'm struggling to imagine what it's going to like next offseason, when Perry, Getzlaf, and Weber could hit the open market.

Marshall 07-04-2012 11:27 AM

Good for the Wild. Good fan base that could use better than what they've been given.

I assume this will open up the market.

tycoonheart 07-04-2012 11:27 AM

Watch the Pens sign Semin now. Him playing with Crosby and Malkin is a dangerous thought.

Brave Sir Robin 07-04-2012 11:28 AM

nah, he's more likely to go to Detroit.

mrwarden 07-04-2012 11:29 AM

What's funny is they're still not contenders and I don't see them getting much better.

NobodyBeatsTheWiz 07-04-2012 11:30 AM

Love that the Pens did nothing to upgrade.

And there's nothing left to upgrade that abysmal defense.

Capitlols 07-04-2012 11:32 AM

Minny gets Parise AND Suter? Awesome. Wonder if they look to cut salary, like Heatley.

Minnesota? I don't see why you wouldn't think they're contenders. They were among the best teams in the league before Koivu went down. Now they've added Parise, and Suter,

Capgeek's got the Suter and Parise cap hits at just over $7.5M, FWIW.

pman25 07-04-2012 11:33 AM

yea lol pens dumped Michalek and and didnt get either of these guys! Now they gotta sign Matt Carle hahah

mrwarden 07-04-2012 11:34 AM

-49 Goal differential for the year. Parise, Suter and healthy Koivu makes them average to slightly above. Not contenders.
