If he gets his money, he'll easily sign here. Maybe not over Minnesota, but maybe they want Suter more? Either way, he's far from an impossible option, although I don't expect him to sign here.
Don't say that to the Devils fans, they will all hate you forever after their Marty Brodeur tighty-whities go into an untiable twist.

With that being said, I completely agree, but I don't know about Minnesota. Sure, they're his hometown team (he's from Faribault), but I don't think they're in a good position to compete for a cup even with him, and they're not a big budget team. They need help at center, if you ask me. P.M. Bouchard is constantly hurt, and Koivu has battled injuries. They also need help on defense. I think they go after Suter before Parise.
