Weber is more flashy and has a bigger shot but Suter depending on your preference is the better defenseman.

I'm just glad the pens whiffed on parise. A different message board I go to is loaded with pens fans and they all thought they had parise locked up.

I don't know who this is, though they have nearly 5k followers, but it's exciting.

I think you're right...good post!

We didn't even get to the conference finals.

Minnesota is well behind what the Avs were at that point.

As far as all their shakeups, I personally believe that Nick Shultz for Tom Gilbert is a step backwards. I don't believe Gilbert is that good at all, I'm not a fan of his. The rest fo their D is a bit of a question mark.

Don't get me wrong, they've improved but it's not like these 2 players are going to make them immediate Stanley Cup contenders, it's not.

If you really think it does, you are putting WAYYYY too much emphasis on what 1 forward and 1 d-man can do on a team.
I'm talking about Seto etc; you're trying very hard to remain optimistic though, I'll give you that.

They knew Minny was desperate, so they just sat around on their fat wallets for a few days and watched the price go up and up and up, and when all the teams including Detroit dropped out because of the price, they said "ok we'll take that one."

I hope the cap drops in the next CBA, and stays that way for a while, so their greed keeps Minnesota from having depth and winning a cup. What a circus act they just put the NHL and fans through so they could squeeze every penny out of their home team.
I don't know why so many people hate minny now for these signings. I'm sure if the avs landed any of the big 2 FA they would've had to overpay too. I'm not going to lie, I'm jealous that they got both but they have a lot of other holes to fill too. Sometimes teams have to overpay to get who they want and I'm sure if the avs signed either one and overpaid, fans from other teams would be jealous and hate the avs for it too.

This happens in all sports.

I'd be very surprised and also very excited if they did sign him. Surprised because that would force Hejduk to the 4th line essentially and excited because he's a pretty exciting player. The 'character question marks' are always a concern though but like a lot of you guys have said, he's probably gonna have a "I'm gonna show you MOFOs what I'm all about" and that's never a bad thing.

I still can't really see it but it makes sense if Hejduk is going to retire after this year and it would be hilarious from a detroit point of view. hahaha

maybe Semin sees that Detroit doesn't look so hot w/o Lidstrom or Suter/Parise... maybe he does sign with Avs... hmm, plus Avs need to step it up and keep up with all the NW moves.

they have 6M in cap gone next season with Backstrom coming off the books (if they want) and you can always trade to make cap space. I don't think Weber will go there but there's always a way to make it happen.

Kroenke's need to open the wallet. Getting semin or carle would be a sign of faith that the ownership is willing to make this team better instead of only trading to build the team and still hugging the floor.

Getting Semin would be great but our defense would still be terrible.

There was a reasonable chance Suter went to a strong Western team like Detroit or San Jose. Instead he went to the weaker Wild. I'm happy with that.

I expected no signings except for a few bottom line pluggers. So getting PAP makes me a happy camper.

This off-season has vastly exceeded my expectations seeing as they signed a legitimate second line winger and got Johnson locked up to a good value deal.

This summer has been a win assuming they give O Reilly a good deal.
