Suter wasn't really filling a need with the kings and would Lombardi really pay him more than Doughty? Detroit makes the most sense for Suter. He gets to be the #1 there. Gets away from the weber shadow. Don't think he wants the doughty shadow.

I'm not saying he was a need here, never saw a fit personally, but seems funny once it comes close that he's close to maybe signing, people come out saying he's not that good.

Ive always said he is not that good, so hope you are not referring to me.

My post history will back that up.

I was saying Suter was overrated a month ago when people were getting hyped up about him being available. He's the hottest thing at the moment because he's a cut above every other UFA defenseman that is available.

Not any one person specifically, I think Suter is a very good d-man. Sure having Weber helps, but he's not a pylon himself.

I didn't go through the whole thread, so apologies if this was already posted but here is the NHL's full list of Kings' RFAs and UFAs:

Los Angeles Kings

Group 2 FAs: Justin Azevedo, Andrew Campbell, Thomas Hickey, Dwight King, Stefan Legein, David Meckler, Jake Muzzin.
Group 3 UFAs: Corey Elkins, Johan Fransson, Trent Hunter, Ethan Moreau, Brady Murray, Scott Parse.
Group 6 UFAs: Patrick Mullen.
UFAs: Ray Kaunisto.

I'm surprised to see the Kings still have Brady Murray's rights. I thought his contract had expired a few years back when he took off to Switzerland the second time.

Market was set real early for Parise/Suter 12-13 year deals offered at 90M plus. Incredible to hear #NHL teams willing to go there.


No way can NJ afford that for Parise. They should just re-sign Marty now and avoid losing both.

Penner said he had a deal in principle with Kings done yesterday, and didn't field other offers. Wanted a chance to repeat with intact team.

Big reason for that not happening is that all concessions are run buy a single company and in-n-out are privately owned and would not allow themselves to not be in control.

But way to stir the pot

Bryan Allen signed with Anaheim for 3 years, 3.5 per. Damn that seems like a lot.

And Parise won't decide until tomorrow.

I would think losing Parise would make it a lot less likely that he goes back.

That's just too much man, those guys are not worth those prices and term.

Kopitar ? yes.

Jesus man what is Kopitar going to be paid when he hits....

He does way more on the ice than Suter or Parise, and is more valuable to the Kings.

Hopefully they put a limit on contract length in the new CBA.

Zach Parise's decision will not come until tomorrow. Has narrowed the field to a select group and will decide Monday.

Holmgren just can't help himself.

On a side note, there is a report that the Canucks offer of 6.5 per for Garrison isn't enough. Pure insanity
Homer's answer (and historically the FLyers) has been to score more goals. Nevermind that they will probably be losing Carle (you think 6.5 for Garrison is overpayment, Carle is better and Flyers offer to him was 4.25) and as much as I love Kimmo Timmenon, he's a warrior, but for the last 2 years, age and the amount of minuts he plays catches up with him and he's been worn downand not effective , esp in the playoffs.
What they don't need is 100 mill on Parise, they need defense a goaltender who doesn't crack under pressureand forwards who aren't named Couturier, Read and Wellwood that know who to be defensively responsible in their own zone.
They'll never learn...

No cup but one of the most underated defensive forwards in the league. And one of the best penalty killers, always leads in PK time, blocked shots, takeaways, a real beast in his own end .That's a fair contract for a player you can trust to defend his zone that well against anybody.
Quote:
I still love the kings on paper and they appear to love sutter as the coach. Big expectations for next season and I don't even expect a playoff repeat performance. I just want a pacific title and a strong defense in the playoffs.
I do too. And they all said how close their were , what a tight group, did a lot together off the ice, stuck by each other thru the season and never lost faith in each other when media, fans and other did. That's HUGE. You can put a price on how much that means and it as a large part of them winning it all. They clearly played hard for each other, all for one, and it showed. Getting that back and having Sutter for training camp forward will be all the diffrence. If those top 2 lines perform as they have been , Carter and Kopi hve the potential to hit 40 goals...the other top 6 hit their strides, Doughty should have a beast like year , ths team could challenge for the Presidents Trophy.

On the other hand, Parise is a stud and I'm sure we could get used to hearing Bob saying 'Parise scores, Kings win"

As much as I too, think the Pens will land him, wouldn't that contract pay him more than Sid? Would that do that?
