They'd be farther ahead to have three of them on the ice at a time than Crawford.

Let it be known, I changed my place of employment to return to Minnesota, so as to not have to burn vacation time to see family. Logical move for a family guy.

Chicago Media isn't tough to deal with and the North and West Suburbs contain many communities that he can live with his family that are great

I actually think if Hawks show interest they will have as good a chance as anyone should the get the cap room (Moving Hammer would be needed)

- He is from Wis
- He has stated he loves Chicago in past
- His uncle played here so he has some history/knowledge of franchise
Suter probably remembers what happened to the last UFA defenseman that Chicago paid north of $7M.

Agreed. Suter doesn't seem the type of player who would thrive in the intense media spotlight of a Canadian market.

To fit Suter under cap Hawks would have to move Hjalmarsson (3.5M)

So team would probably end up

Suter-Keith
Oduya-Seabrook
Leddy-Montador

Olsen waiting in wings in event of injury

That would be great to have ,, Longshot probably but Suter is the type of dman I wish Brian Campbell would have been

I would love to see Edmonton sign him, hopefully they draft Yakupov than go to Suter and show him how they are set up front and just need a stud defensemen to hold the fort on the back end.

If he signs long term, Edmonton would be one of the teams that has the brightest future for the next ten years. Not necessarily the next 2-3 but easily the next 10.

Many of our top players bypass there junior and senior years and play junior hockey. If want to add in Midget AAA and Prep Schools in, the top 3 and 6 of the top 10 are from Minnesota. Also in the delopment program from this year there was only one more guy from Michigan then Minnesota.

Chicago has an amazing small-town, midwest feel for such a world class city. I do like me a Chicago road-trip every time. Feasible location IMO, esp given Suter's obvious familiarity with the place.

Fair enough I guess, but I still cant see him signing there.

If Lidstrom hadnt retired, I dont think Detroit would be in the conversation at all.

But, I guess we'll see what happens on July 1st. I know Ill be able to admit I was wrong if he does in fact sign with Detroit, not sure I can say the same about Wings fans if he signs elsewere though.

He gets a lot more vacation time to "burn" than you do...

It would be a joy to drop your kids off at school in a glitzy suburb, then drive by nearly 20% unemployment and horrible social problems on your way to work. That would make me feel good about my millions, especially when my kids were old enough to ask why.

Oh Brother...that would be about the last team Suter would play for....he wants to go to a team that is a contender or at least on the upswing...and an American team.....Calgary would have to overpay horribly to get a player like Suter on their team.....

Going 'home' because of family...blah, blah, blah.

How do we know he even LIKES his family?!?! Maybe they are annoying and get on his nerves! I know mine does!

Not everyone can be like Joe Sakic and sign in Vancouver for the minimum because he's 'going home'.

(heard that pretty much every year Sakic was a UFA)
(PSSSSST - he STILL hasn't gone 'HOME'...and that's pretty much the point)

That doesn't make any sense given the range of cities we're talking about in both conferences.

Any significant UFA signings where someone "went home"?
