Is that more likely or is the following scenario more likely:

Suter doesn't sign, goes to UFA and signs a mega-deal with Detroit. Weber, already pissed off, signs another 1 year deal, then gets traded off at the deadline for a Kovalchuk like return. We have significant $$$$'s in the bank, but UFA period comes around, and DP deems all those guys too risky, bad fits, too expensive. We spend our money by resigning guys like Halischuk, Smithson, and Fisher to long-term deals. We go into a season with a bunch of young high upside kids, and point to 2014-15 when some of those young kids might mature. We eek into the playoffs each year as a bottom seed, get bounced in the 1st round because we can't score goals, and then spend the offseason lamenting that we can't fix our PP.
I disagree. Suter would sign with Columbus. Because I WANTS IT SO BAD, PRECIOUSSSSS.
