      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

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.
