I think anyobe serious about landing Suter is offering a massively front loaded contract, you must not be in the know.

horrible rebuttal... so since its never been done before, it can't be? nashville has a new ownership and promises of being a cap team. nashville will do everything possible to get suter.

and that's fine.. preds have the finances if they want to keep suter. i think it comes down more to weber, too. and if suter wants to play his career here. money aside.

Nsh should throw the book at he and weber. Breaking apart the most dominant defense pairing would not be good for their season next year.

It is also not out of the realm of possibility for the Preds. My point was you cannot reasonably count them out just because he will get a larger contract than has been offered to a Preds player in the past.

Haha I cannot wait to see the final terms of this contract when the dust settles; it's going to be absurd.

I won't be suprised if it comes close to 100 million

Being a cap team is a lot different from spending 24 million over 2 years on one player though, plus his actual pay will likely be much higher than his cap hit for a few years after that. Then you add in an even higher contract that Weber is going to get. Just seems like a whole lot to add to Nashville's budget

Fair enough, but one can reasonably assume that Nashville cannot have approximately $250 million tied up in three players.

Actions speak louder than words, my friend. Promises are empty until fulfilled. If Suter re-signs with the Preds - and Weber follows him - for a mega $100 million contract, then I admit I was wrong.

Has any NHL team ever had two 100 million dollar contracts on the books?

Well, if the Penguins sign Parise, that would be two, and then add a Malkin extension for three, assuming that the CBA doesn't limit contract length.

It wouldn't be out of this world for the Predators to keep both Suter and Weber.

I was asking more, "how does Philadelphia make that work"?

They have very little cap space and some great young talent that is going to need contracts the next 2-5 years.

If we sign Suter and Parise for around 7.1-7.7 million a piece, we would only need to move one salary of about 4 million. Mez has been speculated he would be the one to go. They could make it work.

The owners have stated several times that they will spend what it takes to keep both Weber and Suter. I doubt they would make such statements without consulting Poile on his opinion of what each will cost, and Poile has been around long enough to know how crazy FA can get.

And before anyone brings up the lowball negotiation tool Poile used at arbitration for Weber, it was not an offer. It was where he wanted the low end of what the arbiter considered to start.

Nah I believe they could make it work with both of them and Voracek. It would just be very tight. Also matters what the final deals would be of course. It would just be extremely tight.

There's a reason Detroit is considered the best organization in hockey.
