The numbers turned out to be 13 years and $98 million. The contracts included identical signing bonus structures ($25 million the first three years) and no-trade clauses. Both players could have made more elsewhere. Parise reportedly had been offered $110 million by Philadelphia. Suter was offered more than $100 million by a team Sheehy wouldn't identify.
To make the Minnesota contracts identical, Parise actually took less than the Wild had offered him.
Bookmarked for future Pari$e and $uter references.
