Well, to be fair, if Detroit went after Parise as hard as they went after Suter ($91m over 13 years) they'd both be wearing the winged wheel right about now. As it turns out, however, Suter did exactly as he said he would by settling closer to "home" in the Mid West.
Having said that, I won't LOL at those who thought Hamhuis could convince him to sign here.
Well Detroit better hope they at least get Carle now, or they're not lookin too strong.
And the Canucks didn't even make him an offer, so you can't call my idea wrong. If we were actually interested in him, I still think Hamhuis would have been part of the pitch.
