As for dangling Abby, wouldn't his value be greater if he were signed?
If we weren't in the running for the guy we really wanted, and was out of the race early, I'd be more concerned. As it is, we lost out to family. We can go back and forth about how if maybe the Wings had offered more Suter would have changed his mind, but I don't see it.
With Abby, I think it depends on the deal. We might be fine signing him up a bit cheaper for a year, someone else might want to throw more money at him and wrap him up for four or five years. I can see both options being appealing and it depends who we're looking to deal with.
blah, blah, blah
