Minus a few million. They don't have many young players up for new deals within the next few years.
Minny and Detroit have to be the leading candidates, but Detroit remains my guess, if only for the fact that I'd suspect he wants to get away from middling franchises and play for a perennially well-constructed team. Detroit has plenty of cap space, and Suter is the type of player who's right up their alley and would fit right in. Parise is, as well.
