Suter, on the other hand, has every appearance of a guy who is likely to re-sign. He wants to win, above all else. He more or less demanded that Nashville make a splash. Between their aggression at the deadline, their little sparks of top tier offensive guys, and all the Radulov talk so far this season, it seems pretty probable that Suter will stick around. The word is that all three (Rinne/Suter/Weber) are being offered the same 49/7 deal. One would have to think if he hits FA, he'll get more than that. The 64/8 someone mentioned would probably be a decent starting point.

yeah because he is taking hometown discount here
