Just stick with the thread and do NOT discuss what should not be discussed if you know what I mean.

If he goes to Minnesota are they going to strip the "c" away from koivu?

I'm actually OK if it's Minnesota, much moreso than if it is Pitt/Philly.

I'm not a vindictive person but what I could not bear would be Zach lifting the Cup around someone else's arena. There's a real chance of that with either of those two teams. The graphic of Crosby or Malkin handing it off to him after a 90pt season would KILL.

With Minny, no such chance. Skate into obscurity, enjoy the woods, lakes, and 12 inches of ice that covers the parking lots from Sept through April.

You don't think the agents and his dad had a 'little' something to do with Zach not signing during the year? Not to mention the fact we had zero playoff success since 2006 and ownership was (is?) still a question mark.

I'm not going to blame Lou when a guy turns down $80-100 million from contenders to take $110 million to play on a loser with his buddy.

If he chooses Minny I hope a reporter calls him out after all the times he said he wants to win.

Who really knows wtf is going on. Wouldn't surprise me in the least though if Suter and Parise were a package deal at this point.
Agreed on everything. This is simply about money, and Suter if he plays for that garbage team. They are a PLAYOFF team at best with those two. Playoff contending team. Not Championship team. If they suck, and he goes there he's got no one to blame, but his self for signing with a perennial loser. I would rather see him go to Pittsburgh cause at least they are a contender every year. It might sit with me better in my conscience that he went there to play for a winner, and to play with Crosby, and Malkin. Other than that I know many of you disagree, and would be happy if he didn't stay in the division, but that's just my take.

Prediction on how many Wild fans will be over when he signs? They were crawling all over the place before free agency began!

At least it would make more sense although with Crosby 1 hit away from Lindros and them trading Staal away and having sucked so bad on d and g in the playoffs I don't see them winning another cup.

Probably not. He'd get an A, I think.

I wouldn't be ok with it, but I would seriously laugh at anyone who suggests he's going there because he thinks they have a chance to win. You're quite right, in Minnesota he will find nothing but failing teams.

If Suter does go also he will put the "young core" and "will be contenders very soon and for a long time" stuff.

If we're grasping a straws here, the only hope of resigning might be that there hasn't really been any leaks about the contract yet, Lou-style.

I'm fine with him leaving. Let's see how he likes the pressure of being "the man" somewhere. Making 8 mil and scoring 30 goals and 32 assists? Good luck with that....

Looking at this whole situation again....

I can see why it would be preferable that it's NOT the Pens, Flyers, or whatever other Division foe or Eastern Conference foe.

That said, however, if it's true that it's down to just the Wild and Us, if he chooses the Wild then what does that say about the Devils? Beaten out by a Loser Franchise with a Loser Owner and a Loser Coach coaching for a Loser team.

Can't wait until Danny Heatley requests a trade out of there before Koivu Zach and Suter get more attention.

"We have a good young core, strong goaltending, a lot of prospects on the horizon ....yadda yadda, yadda...in this league anyone can win in any given year....yadda,yadda, yadda....I just came from a team that went from lottery pick to the finals....blah, blah, blah"



There is his answer verbatim.
