Ryan Suter is Resigned - 4 years/14 million per Tennessean

Supposedly, at around 4 million a year.

If true: Thoughts on the ramifications?

We know Weber is going nowhere.

I believe Zidlicky's NTC expires on July 1st.

Devries is a solid defender, but he is easily replaceable at 2.75 million.

Klein/Koistenen - both are in the same boat.

If Suter hypothetically signs, who leaves or are we staying the same.....

DEAL IS DONE! 4 years 14 million per the Tennessean!

I know Nashville is on a tight budget right now but this could be a great signing for them. I hope they can keep Weber too. Of course then there's Radulov coming up next year (please correct me if I'm wrong)... Guess Poile is going to have to make a choice?

I would love to get rid of De Vries but I doubt that will happen. As far as Zids goes I think he has a pretty sweet contract compared to how much he would command on the open market today, but I agree with your assesment that Zidlicky is a luxury we can't necessarily afford. If suter is really signed Zids becomes our most attrative avaiaible D man for sure. Even better package him and mase toegther and hope some sucker takes them.

As is Devries at 2.75, and Bonk at whatever he makes (1.25?)

according to IB ... Sully (3.2), DC - 10 (2.75), Bonk (1.6), Fiddler (900 K), Zanon, Orts & Nichol (750 K) and Smitty (525 K)

Ellis, Darcy, Gelinas, Hlavac, Yonkman, Willis, Henry, Langfeld (5 mil) off the books this offseason

But it's not really that much since the latter quartet spent most of the season in Milwaukee or on the IR, and Hlavac was a late addition so we paid less than 1/4 of his contract.

Why are we on a tight budget. Everything Freeman has said points to the opposite.

I guess you haven't done much research. Freeman has said the payroll will be between $46-48M this year.

Suter's signing fits in perfectly, but now Weber may be signed to a shorter term (1-2 year) deal for the chance at a bigger payday in the immediate future. That would be a big help towards getting Radulov signed as well.

I guess I missed the quote where Freeman states "46-48 million".

Somebody said $46-48M. It may not have been Freeman but I swear I've seen it quoted somewhere.

Any numbers stated have strictly been speculation. The only official thing we have is that our payroll increase will be the highest in the league - which isn't a hard thing to do when you had the lowest payroll in the league.

According to multiple sources a Ryan Suter deal could be announced shortly and is indeed "COMPLETELY FINISHED." On source however has told me that Suter AND Weber deals may be announced together this week.
good news if indeed true.

Again, it's Eklund. This could mean Suter is going to retire and become a crocodile hunter, for all we know of the accuracy of Eklund's rumors.

Wait for Reg Dunlop to confirm it before you go wasting all that delicious $5 champagne.

Well damn I freaking know that. That's why I put it here because this all started with an Eklund rumor. I'm just saying that he updated his rumor to include a possible Weber signing.

And thanks for the update ... I tend to stay away from that site unless someone mentions Nashville.

Over/under on when the hypothetical signings are announced?

Today?
June 18?
July 1st?
Never! Suter will be traded and Weber will be signed to an offer sheet!

Thought I would pass this along to you guys. Towards the bottom it says Suter has signed for 3.5M per. Doesn't say how long though. Either way, it's a great deal for you guys.

Is this guy another one of the rumor mongers, or is this info legit?

I am severly pessimistic but if that is true I'm going to cry tears of joy The way people were talking I thought it was gonna cost 4.5 Mil. 3.5 would be unbelievable.

I'm waiting for the news to break. At the least, it certainly seems that this signing is going to take place...

If Suter and Weber both sign, what is the status of Kevin Klein? Is it likely he would be traded?

If he is, what would it take from Ottawa to acquire him?

If Suter and Weber both sign, Klein's gone. So... what would you be willing to part with for Mr. Klein?

Well, what is Nashville in need of most? I know that a top six forward would be a glaring need, but it would take more than Klein to get Vermette. Maybe Klein + 15th for Vermette +

Another possibility is something around Ottawa prospects for Klein. Ilja Zubov is a possibility, a good young forward who had a good rookie season in the AHL. Josh Hennesey is another, he still has decent potential, but has not been able to crack the sens lineup for an extended period.

Vermette would be a great addition, but I think he's going to command more salary-wise than we can afford with Radulov becoming an RFA next summer.

Can Zubov or Hennessey play wing? Otherwise they won't make it very far in this organization. We're pretty well set at center.
