I think that is good for those of us who don't want him in Detroit.

If he really wanted to play there I think 90 mil over 13 years would be sufficient.

Just my 2 cents.

It'll be nice when Suter and Parise finally decide. Then the rest of the FA period can finally resume! This happens every year it seems, one or two big name player take their sweet time in deciding which 9 figure deal they want to sign, not realizing they are actually holding up the rest of things til they've made the choice. Fine, understandable, they want to make sure it's the right one for their lives. Gotta be smart on that. But the rest of the hockey world has to wait for them. Everyone knows GMs wait to see whats left player wise and money wise regardless if the players making their mutli million dollar decisions aren't coming that way or are. Kills it for us fans and supporters.

They're making a decision that's going to change their lives for the next 10-15 years. They deserve all the time they want and need.

Ryan Suter contract offer: 13 years, $90 million from Detroit?

The Nashville Predators have made a "substantial offer" to Suter. Other teams like the Philadelphia Flyers and the Pittsburgh Penguins remain in the hunt, with the Flyers allegedly offering 12 years and between $80 and $110 million to both Suter and Parise. The Wild have made their offer to Suter public, though not the terms.

Ansar Khan of MLive.com reported on Monday that the Red Wings' offer to Suter was a 12-year contract worth $90 million. On Tuesday, Helene St. James of the Free Press wrote that "the Wings made an offer of $80 million over 13 years to Suter on Sunday, and have since increased the money to $90 million."

From the Freep:

The issue isn't so much money as a whole but rather the salary cap hit, as the Wings are concerned about retaining flexibility under a new collective bargaining agreement. Their top offer of $90 million averages to a cap hit of $6.9 million, which would put Suter among the leaders for defensemen.

At 13 years and $90 million, Suter's contract would eclipse that of Duncan Keith of the Chicago Blackhawks, who has a 13-year deal worth $72 million. Only Keith and Christian Ehrhoff (10 years) of the Buffalo Sabres have contract that run 10 years or more for defensemen.

But Suter's cap hit would rank him fourth among defensemen, behind Brian Campbell of the Florida Panthers ($7,142,875), Drew Doughty of the Los Angeles Kings ($7 million) and Zdeno Chara of the Boston Bruins ($6,916,667). The first two players have eight-year contracts, while Chara's is seven years.

Is Suter worth the money? Chara is. Doughty, it could be argued, is. So it's not outlandish to believe that we'll look back on Suter's contract as he collects a Norris Trophy or Stanley Cup and say the investment was worth it.

Or, perhaps, he's the Pippen to Shea Weber's Jordan but gets paid like he's MJ.

for 7.0M/yr, not too shabby. He's no Weber, but he's solid.

Understandable that they are taking their time, its a huge decision regardless of which team they choose. There are a LOT of factors which coming into play. However, as a fan it is so frustrating. It just makes it all drag on. Granted Vancouver has had a longer off season then anyone was expecting so it feels like its dragging longer then it has been.

This is hilarious, the guy is apparently a "family man", wants best for his kids. Yet he is meeting with DETROIT, one of the worst cities in America.
