I'd love to have Suter back...but he's an UFA, and it's up to him to choose. As much as we would like to think he's "betraying" us if he doesn't take a contract offer...even a competitive one...the decision is completely up to him. Some guys feel a loyalty towards one franchise, their teammates, and the fans, and they never ever want to leave. Others just want to play hockey (and get paid well while doing it) and have different experiences with different teams. I can't fault either type.

At the end of the day, we can't twist his arm and force him to sign on the line that is dotted. Plus, I don't want for him to sign here out of obligation. I want him to sign here if he wants to be here. Otherwise, he's done his mileage, and he's earned the right to explore elsewhere.

Good luck to Ryan, in whatever his decision may be.
