I think if we offered Suter 42 Million over 6 years (7M Cap hit, and double what he makes now) he might take it. Unless he gets offered more. It would make Suter the 3rd highest paid D in the league tied with Doughty.

And then if we did get a big UFA like Suter and then buried Gomez/Kabs in the minors if they can't be traded someone like Parise could possibly be willing to sign for 7+M per year. The UFA signings definitely snowball, when you land one others often follow. And burying big contracts in the minors would indicate seriousness on the part of the owners on winning.

I look at lineups like this and salivate all too much i think. So unlikely to happen, but oh would it be grand.


Zach Parise ($7.500m) / Tomas Plekanec ($5.000m) / Erik Cole ($4.500m)

Louis Leblanc ($1.170m) / Lars Eller ($1.500m) / Brian Gionta ($5.000m)
Travis Moen ($1.700m) / Ryan White ($0.625m) / Blake Geoffrion ($1.000m)
