Suter is going to be a Wing. Parise.......probably not. Semin........feel pretty good about it.
I'm not saying it isn't worth trying and throwing a lot of money at them.
But I'm being a realist, there are two absolute top tier UFA's this year. You can't expect Detroit to land one of them, let alone both!
Penciling in superstars when 15-20 other teams are openly pursuing does not make you a successful GM. Any idiot could do that, it's having a realistic plan should you lose the lottery... like most teams will!

Semin, I said might be a possibility. I honestly haven't even heard if Detroit is actually interested...

A 30 team pool and Holland MUST come out with one of the top 3 Free Agents... Two of which still might not even make the open market... sounds reasonable.
