I agree. Since he is from there and provided he had a happy childhood, he could want the same for his children. It is only logical.

St. Louis isn't much better of a city than Detroit. Not too long ago they were competing for murder/crime capital of the U.S. (Which I believe belongs to ATL now)

Bloomfield Hills is a good area, the education quality in the burbs is insane. One of my friends has a relative that teaches in the area and actually taught a class with Eminem's daughter. The most I've heard is that she is taken care of "very well".

And to boot, if he were to retire in Detroit he's pretty much guaranteed a job in the organization if he wants one.

That's true with every NHL city. He would still spend a lot of his time in a main city with practice, games, charity events or other activities with his family. It's not just a matter of where he and his family sleep at night.

With that said, while it is short sided to say He can just live in the nice neighborhood, it's just as bad saying he'll base his decision off of the city's perception alone. Detroit may be the butt of all the jokes, but that's not going to stop him from doing research to see how true it is or if it even applies to his situation.

It sure is a better area of the country to live. Especially compared to Detroit. I'll take not living in one of the top places to become broke or get murdered any day of the week.

Well, its a terrible argument really, so theres no point to keep saying it.

Every single city in the world is going to have its rich, safe suburbs, but that doesnt change the fact that Detroit in general is a dangerous city(in relative terms). Denver will have neighborhoods just like Bloomfield Hills in Detroit. The difference, Denver as an entire city is pretty safe, small, and has a great backdoors for Suter to enjoy. Detroit, simply put, does not.

Again, you dont need to go cry, Im sure Detroit still has a good shot at signing Suter, but if everything thats been said about Suters preferences is true, then Detroit would be one of the last teams he would want to sign with. Without Suter, theres nothing going for them at this point, With Suter its a different story.

Because Suter is definitely worried about becoming broke and the one violent crime that took place in BF Hills in 2010.

That's when Backstrom (6M), Cullen (3M), Bouchard (4M) and Heatley (7M) are off the books. I don't think we need to worry too hard about the cap, atm.

Really hoping GMJN gets the green light to throw some good money at Suter, come July 1st.

Could even see the Stars trading for his rights, just to get that first crack at him.

And yet oddly enough they're still always around the top of the player's poll....

Why would SJ offer him anything?

They already have a pretty much set D core.

He is going to Chicago, St. Louis, Minnesota, or Detroit. The nearest cities from his hometown Madison.

Chicago does not have capspace, and not so big need for him. Also Suter doesn't like big Cities.

Minnesota plays at Northwest, maybe he doesn't want to go to Canada that often.

Maybe St. Louis aren't willing to spend that much money yet.

I think he likes to stay at Central and goes to Detroit.

I live in St. Louis and can tell you that you have to go WAY OUT OF YOUR WAY to get into the kind of trouble you're talking about. A guy like Suter wouldn't come close (unless he frequented the east side..... )

his uncle, gary, made a comment on a sharks broadcast this past season about ryan signing in san jose and how he would love for it to happen if it could... something like that. can't remember the specifics.

also, when a guy like suter is a free agent and you are not on the list where he wouldnt sign, you at least make a call ..

Suter's really good, and his uncle loved playing for us. If we can get him at a fair price we could trade Murray and/or Boyle to replenish our horrendous farm system or fill out our forwards. Boyle only because he's getting old and his defense has slipped a bit recently. He's definitely a weapon offensively, but if DW can get Suter at a reasonable price and he wants to retire here there's no reason not to sign him.

Meh, there's good a bad parts of every city. Unless Suter's out trying to score coke or at the nearest 7/11 at 2 A.M. he should be fine wherever he is.

That's East St. Louis, Illinois. An hour outside of St. Louis in any direction will lead you into a bunch of cornfields.

He can ask every Detroit player to retire in Detroit if that is true. Even current players or former players who still live in Michigan.

He doesn't like publicity? People won't even recognize him in Anaheim.

Yes, we just don't know what that number is lol...For the record, St. Louis can sign him for around 7 million and still stay right around the same salary if they let Arnott, Langenbrunner, and Jackman go.
