I think Suter is a player that should be investigated, though I's much to prefer to talk trade with Nasville than give him an offer sheet. Nashville must resign Weber and has a bunch of D prospects that they may think can replace Suter. I don't know much about the Pred's cap situation, anyone have insight?

edit: just checked the pred's board, they said Suter turned down 3.5 for 3 years (rumor.) I think Suter at 4.5 for 5 years is probably a better investment than giving Roszy 5.5 for 5 years (though I do like Roszival.) If you can sling a first and some prospects, maybe a non-core youngster for Suter and sign him to that contract, I would do it, though I might just be dreaming here. Suter's the type of young player that it's worth moving some assets for. Staal and Dubinsky would be off the table, but if you can work around those restrictions, it might be worth doing. It would probably come down to whether contract negotiations break down and/or what the preds have to give Weber.
