If they pick up someone like Suter their team would have improved so I can't totally fault him, and I was one of the ones who laughed at the idea of him going to the Wild. But Zack alone without Suter? That would be ridiculous.

lol again, it would require Vanderbeek paying out at least $85 million in salary next year. Unless Mikail Prokorov is our 'mystery investor' that ain't happening.

This.

I'm almost convinced Holmgren doesn't want to part ways with Couturier or Schenn for Ryan. You need those up and coming stars on your roster cause they bring talent along with cheap contracts and in a cap era, that's pure gold right there. The same can be said about our young stud, Adam Henrique.

I'd dangle Josefson, any of our blueliners or Clarkson/Zubrus, any of our prospects (yes, that includes Merrill) and picks.

Bobby Ryan is a stud forward with size, he's only 25 years old, is a consistant 30 goal scorer and can play all 3 positions up front.

Odds are it won't happen but if Lou were to offer that type of package, I wouldn't be pissed one bit.

I can already see it next year, Zajac recruiting someone else who's a buddy to go to Winnipeg and turn around that franchise, while we overpay Clarkson and sign Elias and Zubrus to monster-long extensions.

Who's going to miss each other more ?

Will Suter be worse without Weber and be deemed *gasp* HUMAN?!

Seriously who is he going to play with in Minny ?

If that were the case Semin and all other UFA russians would be Devils also!

Tom Gilbert. They'll have to play 40 minutes a night with the rest of that defense.

Why do people want to pay through the nose for Bobby Ryan and hurt our forward depth even more ?

Do you really want to give up henrique/zajac a top d prospect and a 1st ?

I don't...not for a 60 pt guy. Who HATES Northern Jersey BTW

I say Edmonton is a great trading partner. We have a lot of D......need to unload some of it. Who do they have on offense?

I keep coming back to this thought. I don't think it's necessarily a foregone conclusion that he signs with the Wild just because Suter might. Suter is chasing the money, no doubt about it. I don't think Nashville fans had any illusions about him returning. But Parise still might not want to ditch the only team he has known for a perennial losing team.

I'm sure it will, as soon as he can't live up to the pressure of his crazy contract. Kovalchuk struggles at time under the weight of his $100 M deal, and he's a lot more gifted offensively than Parise is. Playing in his hometown with a huge contract and being unable to deliver the results, that will be very difficult for him.

Hemsky. He's got potential to become a big time player.

That's why him bringing along Suter is huge for him, they can share that burden.

Hemsky's a skilled player, but he gets hurt way too often.

Gagner's an RFA. Not all that interested in Hemsky.

Well my personal saving grace is the run we went on when he got hurt. At least it makes me believe we will still be a solid team going forward.

Call me a debbie downer but all the Minny talk and the rumors of him signing today just seems to me like it might be the truth.

Spurgeon and Scandella are decent, but ya, they have no defensive depth at all. Yeo runs a defensive system that makes them look better than they are, and Backstrom is a good goalie.

The guys we'd want, they wouldn't trade. None of the young guys are on the block. And I'm not sure why everyone wants Hemsky here.

Zach, I swear to you if you sign with any other team besides us, you're dead to me.
