I'll likely try to get a Weber's better chant going during the Suter video. So, that should be fun.
Suter doesn't deserve jack. I think a "liar, liar, liar" chant would be way more effective and easy to do.... and easy to spread.

I also stood and cheered for the Toots video, can't take away what he did for this team and what it did for him. On the other hand....

The negativity and *****ing in the middle of this thread was near unreadable. Maybe I just try and fist pump good plays more than produce hernias over bad plays against.

I thought we played well. We have always been best when our defemsan are proactive in the offensive zone and rush. It can mask our vanilla forwards. I never like giving a point to Detroit, but am
Glad we got the two at home.

Three games in a row with the puck coming out from behind the net, to a teammate, straight into the twine. It is becoming a disturbing trend.
I'm not as concerned that the turnover occurred, even though it obviously shouldn't have, but that someone was standing in the low slot all alone. The lost coverage is unforgivable.

Thank you Nashville for allowing me to grow as a person both on and off the ice. Tribute video and ovation was extremely emotional.

The Datsyuk steal happens to everyone ... but the blown coverage and lost battle along the boards at Colorado are recurring trends. The Kobasew and Maroon goals were also blown coverage plays down low. Once in a while is going to happen ... so many in a short span is unforgivable.

I don't think there will be a Suter tribute video. Tootoo got booed when he first hit the ice and about 15% booed during the tribute vid.

Suter is going to get booed the whole game.

Suter doesn't deserve that much hatred.

Poile's naivety deserves most of the blame. He really doesn't have a pulse on our players-- Radulov, Weber, Suter, more.

What does anyone expect? Suter said he wanted to test free agency-- it's just wishful thinking on Poile's part that he was committed the Predators at that point. If he was, he would have signed a freakin deal already.

The 2nd problem is Poile didn't put much effort into resigning Suter the offseason before he was FA. "He was too busy dealign with the Weber arbitration". Weber arbitration-- another major gaffe on Poile. He should have put the energy in getting both of those guys signed, not playing p****-tactics with Weber.

Yeah well, the fans can't boo Poile's na´vetÚ, so let's hate Suter instead.

I'm being serious. **** Suter.

Man I really hope there is a Suter video just because it would be HILARIOUS to hear the fans' reaction to it.

Perhaps we could have a reverse tribute video...like a video chronicling his betrayal?

I clapped for Toots. He left because we didn't want him. Can't be mad at the guy. Sure, it kinda feels like he signed with Detroit just to give us the middle finger, but whatever. We hardly played him towards the end and basically let Yip take his place. We didn't want him, so he left to sign a 3-year, $5.7M deal with a storied franchise that has a reputation for treating its players well. Good for him.

What he did isn't even in the same atmosphere as what Suter did.

A classic dulzhok appearance.

Don't agree with anything you said except for the first sentence. I don't hate Suter because I expected him to leave this whole time. The signs were there: signing his 2nd contract right up to UFA status, living in the shadow of Weber for years, refusing to listen to contract negotiations until the offseason, the all-star fiasco. We're better off without him anyway with the way Josi, Ellis, and Blum are playing.

He'll still be really fun to hate on March 9th though!

Glad Toots got props and was gratified to see his response on twitter

As far as Suter, Poile may have been naive but he also had no choice.. we had a potential cup team and even if Suter had said flat out he wasnt going to re-sign I dont think poile could have traded him before the season ended. So at most he cost us a pick by not trading his rights before july 1.

truth is, as well as our D is playing without him, Im not so sure that we arent better off not having another 100 million dollar contract to handcuff us... though adding parise would have been nice...

I think we are better off, especially because of how Weber's contract is structured. Not to say we couldn't use someone of Suter's talents (and the invaluable chemistry him and Weber developed)...but dumping ~$15 million in cap space on 2 blue liners, and $7 mil on a goalie leaves us with building the rest of the team (20 or so players) around 2/3 of the cap space (currently). Factor in the number of fans clamoring for a top line forward (another $6-7 mil, easily) and you could easily find yourself in the situation a lot of teams have, with wonderful top end talent bookended by complete ****, or prospects, and worse off in the wins department (because only 1 or 2 lines are worth a damn).

While I understand the Suter hate (mainly because he lead us on), it's not really a bad thing that he didn't sign. Going into last year, we knew it would be hard to keep all of Weber/Suter/Rinne. We locked up Rinne. That in itself meant it would be difficult to sign Sutes and Webs. Signing 2 out of 3 was a pretty major victory for us as a franchise. Under Liarpold, it's pretty likely that the whole thing would've blown up, and Josi/Klein would be our new top pair, and Anders Lindback would be our goalie.

I think we're better off, too. Funny how things work out.


But I'll still boo him because he's a Liar on Liarpold's Trophy Team.
