Avs to make a push for a Suter or a Parise

Can't believe this hasn't been chatted about yet. He said it very early this morning on twitter as a reply to a tweet following an ESPN story where he mentions the Avs cap room and free agency. Heres what he said to someone who asked if the Avs will make a big move:

This is big news, if you ask me.

I can't explain how happy I'll be if we actually get Suter.

Maybe Dater just confused them and meant he was looking for a suitor?

I think this just means Suter, we wouldn't have re-signed Jones if we were going after Parise.. or we will have to trade Mueller. For pipe-dreams sake:

Parise-Stastny-Jones
Landeskog-O'Reilly-Downie
McGinn-Duchene-Hejduk
Mcleod-Olver/UFA/McClement-Kobasew

Suter-EJ
Hejda-O'Byrne
(Mueller Trade) - Hunwick, Barrie, Elliott, Gaunce, Wilson

Varlamov
Giguere

Duke is probably playing his last season, there's no need to trade Mueller even if we end up with Parise.

Come on Sherman!

Of the two I think we have a better chance landing Suter.

I think Parise is going to re-sign with NJ.

I hope they try. Adding that kind of talent for nothing more than money would be a big boost to the team.

If we do sign Suter and Parise is still on the market, I think that would make the Avs one of the frontrunners. Imo Suter will sign before Parise.

I'm not going to get myself excited though, Avs are still the darkhorse to sign Suter.

False sense of hope.

I would love to be wrong here, but I will not get my hopes up and be let down.

I still have huge doubts that Sherman will be able to sign either. Although I would be really excited for next season if he did.

My guess is that at least one of them resigns with their current team.

like you guys said , both players would be amazing , but let say we can land only one of them who would you prefer ? who would fill our need the most ? Gaming and Bubba seems to think that It's Suter. I mean Suter and EJ would be a legit top Dpair for sure. But i do beleive that we need more offence up front too , so what do you guys would pick if we had to get just one ?

I'd be excited about this news...if it was anyone else other than Dater reporting it. He never gets this stuff right.
