All Suter quotes

Entire article here:

But with regards to Suter and Weber, there is a feeling that both of them will not commit to re-signing until they see what the Predators do at the trade deadline to fortify their chances this season – not next.

Suter didn’t deny that factors into his decision.

“Yeah, part of me [feels that way],” Suter said. “We’ve kind of talked and I’m just going to go out there and play as hard as I can and help our team win.”

He said he speaks monthly with Poile about the organization’s long-term “philosophy” and improving the club to win a Stanley Cup right now.

“We have a lot of good players in our room,” Suter said. “Not saying you got to go out and get a big name guy – just the right piece.

“You don’t bring someone in who is not going to help you win. So I think the biggest thing is the right piece and hopefully, we’re positioned to go get that right piece.”

Suter credited management for signing goalie Pekka Rinne as an indication things were moving forward.

“Signing Pekka, that is a huge statement,” he said.
