Yes, the forecheck would be improved, but that does not improve the D as much as we need it improved. I know Suter coming here is a longshot, but he would be a far better signing than Parise. Adding 1 forechecker is not going to improve the teams Defense as much as adding a top 2 D man will. Now if the rest of the team would forecheck with him, you might be onto something, but that's not the case.
