It is time for the Predators to step up to the plate. This is what it takes to retain elite players right now. If Suter walks, you have a much higher likelihood that Weber walks. If that happens, this teams "win-now" period will effectively have ended. It is rare you see three superstars on a team. We have that. This team is so close.

Look at Erhoff last year ... 10 year, 40million ... 18mil of that in the first two years.

Would love to know the team that offered that 13 year 100mil... And now that those numbers out and the Preds vowing to match any offer Weber gets means Weber will not sign an offer sheet or The Preds get stuck with one stupid contract that cripples the team.

I want Suter back as much as anyone but I don't want to sign him to a contract that cripples the franchise.

I have full faith in Poile and the organization to match whatever length and total $ is being offered, but I just don't see them being able to shell out the heavy front-loads being talked about. Just ridiculous...

#NHL. Starting to hear Suter has picked #Redwings as his destination. More to come.....

Still looking for confirmation that Suter has pick #Redwings but the sense is the decision is coming soon.

We knew it was probably coming, but sure as hell isn't going to make it any easier to swallow.

If Suter is coming to Detroit, the Red Wings haven't heard yet."

Agent Neil Sheehy says Ryan Suter has not made a decision yet.

Kypreos jumped the gun?

The Avs jumped a gun on a signing earlier. It's one of the problems of the twitter age where every blogger, reporter, rumor monger, fan, source, etc wants to be first with news and doesn't always wait for it to be true.

Still want to wait for confirmation but I've been saying all along that Poile has screwed this whole situation. It's all on Poile if Suter leaves for nothing and to an intra division rival no less.

But maybe this presser is to announce that Suter extended. Hopeful.

Let them do it. With the stupid money there talking for Suter imagine what Weber is going to get--- two players 1/4 of the teams cap??????

If he goes to Detroit, he should be harassed constantly when in Nashville. And by constantly, I mean every. Time. He. Touches. The. Ice.

Nope. The sheep will give him a standing ovation complete with a video tribute cause "that's why players like playing here. We're not Philly, we respect our players."

Hamhuis got a video tribute even though he talked s*** about us to the Vancouver media.

This organization is no joke, but severely lacks the type of financial resources most of the top teams in the league are able to bring to bear. I would be surprised if our offer wasn't in the same ballpark in terms of total money and years to most of the top offers, but we just don't have the $ to be paying players TWICE their sizable cap hit for the first years of their contracts.
