No comparison between Suter and Arnott. Home grown star of 7 years and one of the main faces of the franchise vs guy who played for 4 teams b4 us and was here for 4 years and not well liked.

If Suts doesn't get a tribute, it'll show how screwed management felt they were. Given the ugly reaction he will get, they are better off not doing it.

btw, looks like his return will be March 9th. Big Saturday night sellout crowd. It'll be fun to see how he reacts to the hostile reception and how the Pred players react.

i don't believe he's been back. I don't remember the Penguins coming into town last season.

I have nothing to say about him.

I can't honestly say I dislike him. He made his choice, and he has a right to play wherever he wants as a free agent. He could have conducted himself better but whatever, let's forget him.

That being said I don't particularly like him either.

He's just there.

Suter has been better than Shea more consistently the past several years. He has been awesome. His Olympic performance was ... unmatched by anyone IMO. It is a shame he left, and the Predators will probably be fine without him. That said, he is a huge huge loss, and if he maintains the same level of play over the next 5-7 years, he definitely is a hall of famer IMO.

can someone with a more extensive knowledge of hockey history give examples of players like Suter who made the Hall? IE defensemen with only modest offensive numbers and also not bone crushers like Scott Stevens? Who was the last generations Suter? as repulsive as it sounds, Im thinking maybe Chelios is as close a comparison as I can think of....

and speaking of Chelios... Im thinking maybe we hear "Suter is a SISSY" this season...

I'll follow him a little bit even though I don't like him. I'm curious to see how he does without Weber and vice versa.

Doug Harvey

11x All Star - 6x Stanley Cup
88 G - 452 Assist - 540 Points

played 1949 to 1969

Inducted in 1973
Played 14 years with the Habs.


Pierre Pilote

8x All Star -1 x Stanley Cup
3 Norris Trophies
80 G - 418 Assist - 498
14 seasons in NHL 13 as a Hawk and one as Leaf

So I doubt very seriously the Former 20 that paled here will even get a sniff since he will likley end his career with the Mild.

We play them three times? So it is like 30 shifts for him every game?

So I want to see him receive at least 100 hits and be on his but at least 50 times. I also want each of our forwards to undress him proper and Weber hit him with this bullet at least once in an ankle

And then he can be on with his life.

Truth be told I doubt I'll pay much attention to what he's doing unless it's just me wanting the Wild to fail. It's not like he's a forward or goalie. He'll probably be solid basically every night and not make any glaring mistakes, it's only his team that I might like to fail.

Wild or Wings which team do we hate the most now? The Wings because of their obnoxious fans in our arena or Minny with Craig Liarpold and $uter. I'm leaning towards the Mild since I actually respect the Wings org. outside of Bertuzzi.

I remember that like it was yesterday. He acted like he didn't even know we were playing a tribute for him right above his head and had the camera on him.

It really makes little sense discussing this. We knew two years ago that the team would have to make a choice of keeping Suter or Weber. In no matter of logic was there a scenerio where the Preds could afford both without destroying any chance to compete. The contracts that the Wild took on will have repercussions for them. Liarpold may have bit off a lil more than he can chew.

Speaking as a fan of a team that's gotten that kind of jackass treatment more than once... you're never really over it until either you've succeeded without the guy, or he's retired.

It's good to know that even if we can't influence folks with our on-ice play, we can at least be a trendsetter in the field of vindictive pettiness.

(And yet it was STILL AWESOME. )

Well, you can go the CBJ route rip off Suter, or the ATL route and toss them. Either is catharsis

ugh... we offered $uter an extremely similar deal to what he was given by liarpold... YES we could have afforded both of them. $uter just completely mislead an entire team and fanbase

actually the money situation has improved substantially. I believe it when I hear people say Weber was shocked that Suter left and that he thought no tonly was Suter coming back but thta he was bringing Parise with him.... I believe we would have paid all three of them and had one hell of a core going forward...
