Even though I like our team, it's still somewhat depressing that we were never in on Suter and Parise, and we probably won't be in on any major free agents for the forseeable future. We could even be in danger of being in the Nashville situation a couple of years from now, when our core starts turning UFA.

I don't think so. While the Blues won't be a team that spends up to the cap, they'll be able to afford raises on Petro/Shattenkirk/Oshie/Stewart/Perron/etc if they win on a consistent basis as well as ownership showing a commitment to winning.
Wow! I was really hoping that Suter would go to Minnesota this entire time because I thought that their team as a whole wasn't great, so adding him wouldn't really help a whole lot, at least until their young guns improve. Adding Parise makes them a playoff team in my mind. They still have Heatley and Seto, now they have their big guy on the back end along with a game changing forward. Wow. I hope Granlund struggles a lot or they're going to be a force, maybe as early as next year. Canucks are going to have a tough time winning the Presidents this year seeing as they actually have some competition within their division now. Good for Minne. They have some die hard fans that haven't really experienced much to be happy about. Wish they were in the East though
