Sounds like Detroit was going after Suter much harder than we were, but Parise took over. He then took a smaller contract so they would both get the same money. Anyone want to question him getting a letter?
I heard Detroit pissed off Suter by showing up at his doorstep when he specifically asked that no teams personally try to persuade him.
