I would have been willing to go 100 million on Suter, I thought that was his magic number to not even listen anywhere else 13 or 14 years at that number. Plus I thought and still do think that he would age well. Preferred Semin to Parise from day 1, as Semin is the better player. I wouldn't pay Parise anymore than the Wings reported offer to him, which was pretty insulting when stacked up next to some of the other leaked rumors.
