They want a sniper to can get 75-80+ pts next to Giroux. Nash fits the bill, as does Parise and Ryan, and they're all closer to Giroux's age than Jagr's.
This makes sense, at least from an offensive standpoint, however, I think they should be looking at defense before this. That isn't to say I would be mad if they got Parise, Nash, or Ryan instead of Suter, I just think it would be smarter to go after a defender instead. If they could somehow finagle both, that would be epic.
