Meltzer had an excellent write up about why the Parise and Suter attempt was poor (pie on the sky that they would sign here) and the Carle situation was also a miscalc b/c Holmgren had tagging space at one point during the season to sign Carle to a more reasonable contract which Carle was willing to do..Meltzer talked about that too. So there is more to those situations than what it seems at face value.....
