I remember Minny gave Suter a better offer, but the deciding factor that I read was Parise called Suter.

Suter never made a counter offer to Holland... he just signed with Minny soon after Parise talked to him. I'm not sure a 13 year deal for $98 million was a wise decision.... didn't we learn anything from the Franzen contract?
