      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.

[Report] Suter offered 13 year deal by detroit

Recommended Posts

Unrestricted free agent defenceman Ryan Suter has reportedly been offered a 13-year, $90 million contract by the Detroit Red Wings.

A report in the Detroit Free Press says that Suter was offered $80 million by the Red Wings on Sunday, and the team has since increased its offer to the 27-year-old blueliner.

The newspaper says that Red Wings general manager Ken Holland met with Suter at the defenceman's home in Madison, Wisconsin on Tuesday.

Suter is reportedly also being pursued by the Philadelphia Flyers and Minnesota Wild, in addition to his former team, the Nashville Predators.

His agent, Neil Sheehy, said this week that Suter is taking some time to consider his options.

Philadelphia offered over $200M for both Parise and Suter. If you must have a source google it. I read a lot of stuff.

Strangely enough, a thread was made about this earlier. The only source at the time was HockeyyInsiderr. As a result, it was locked.

Then again, he has been wrong about multiple things:

All I can say is that, as bad as this is for Detroit in the long term, I don't want the Wings to become any stronger. Hopefully Suter decides to sign somewhere else.

I'm still conflicted on whether or not to believe him. Some of his tweets are accurate, while others are not.

No biggy, only $10 million more... we might just well throw in another $20 million as a signing bonus.... and then anothe $10 million as a bonus for the signing bonus. :picard:

This is absolutely rediculous.... i used to really respect the NHL for keeping slaries low (compared to the MLB, NBA, NFL) but it looks like the NHL is climbing up close to these other league.

So if Suter gets 7 mil a year for 13 years, what would we have to pay for Weber?

9 mil a year for 16 years?

These contract are ridiculous. Needs to be a cap on contract length.

He also said we were out of the Garrison sweepstakes mere hours before we signed him, at $2million less than he said we offered him.

I wouldnt say he is credible.

i don't buy the Suter hype.

I know they are just numbers but 37, 39 and 46 points - 55, 64 and 46 hits - +4, +20, +15 - 4 goals, 4 goals, 7 goals...

Those are some unspectacular numbers, particularly beside Weber.

I realize there are significant parts of his game that are not accounted for in these statistics, but without the name Suter attached, those are not 90 to 100 millon dollar numbers.

If they came with the guarantee that Weber was to follow, that would be another question, but if the Canucks signed this guy to that contract, I'd be pretty damn disappointed.
