Detroit's going to roll out the red carpet for him, no reason for him to pass on a cup winning franchise.
Couple of ways to look at that.
Detroit won the Cup four years ago. Since then they've had two 2nd round exits and one 1st round exit. That's even worse than Vancouver's (perceived by some fans) brutal playoff record lately.
By that logic, there's no reason for him to turn down offers from Anaheim or Carolina...
More accurately, there's no reason for Suter not to go to a competitive team with a decent shot at a Cup, that can also afford to pay him the league max.
Orland Kurtenbach and Dennis Kearns had just been torched 8-1 by the Habs, but they still took time to come out to meet us, some fellow BC boys who were playing hockey in Montreal. THAT"S what being a Canuck is!
