I guess Suter is going to make Doughty's contract look like a bargain when it's all said and done.
And it's going to be a fair contract because it falls in the "market rate" everyone talked about in the Stoll thread, correct?

Almost anyone who signed in the past couple of years is going to look underpaid with the ridiculous numbers being thrown around so far.

2012 was clearly the best year to be a FA. And it's not even close.

I also heard on a UM board I post on that the Red Wings team plane, along with management, ownership and Chris Chelios (works for the Wings) all were in Wisconsin and may be heading back to Detroit to get this done.

Mighty big shoes for Suter to fill in Hockeytown.
