Apparently Suter wants to play in Minnesota

Suter is No. 1 on the Red Wings' wish list, regardless of whether Lidstrom returns.

Some in the organization believe Suter is the closest thing they have seen to Lidstrom. He is an all-around defenseman who moves the puck well, has a terrific shot from the point, likes to hit, logs a lot of minutes and has been extremely durable. And he's only 27.

Suter turned down a lucrative offer from Nashville during the season. Some believe he wants to sign with the Minnesota Wild.

The Detroit beat writer wrote the cap will rise to $70M in the summer under the current agreement. He failed to mention the CBA expires in 4 months. Bettman will **** a brick if the NHL plays a single game with a $70M upper limit. The Wings have the room to add major payroll within the current upper limit thinking it stays in that area. Minus a few million. They don't have many young players up for new deals within the next few years.
