If you really want Suter then wait til the offseason to sign him. We need a center 1st and then a vet gritty dman. We need more offensive depth not less.

Also that 1st hurts. We need to replenish the farm.
For Suter, I'd risk it if there's some indication that he'd be interested in extending.

I agree that we need more offensive depth, and need to replenish the farm. But I don't agree that Suter plays a position of relative strength. The only player I feel comfortable with at LD is Alzner. 1LD is a black hole on this roster, and Suter's a top-10 defenseman in the league.
