It’s a gridlock … Suter’s offer from the Wings … Wings tried for Salo … Nash and Luongo’s could expand … Jagr talking with Stars

  • Darren Dreger of TSN: Free agency is a gridlock waiting for Zach Parise and Ryan Suter to sign. The trade market is also at stand still. The Rangers, Wings and Flyers are the top 3 Nash trade targets. The Hurricanes are also interested and may intrigue Nash if he decides to expand his list. The Sharks won’t make a deal if Logan Couture has to be included. GM Scott Howson is counting on a bidding war once Parise signs.
  • Detroit Free Press via twitter: The Red Wings initial offer to Suter was 13 years and $80 million, but is now up to $90 million. They Red Wings made a 2 year offer to Sami Salo on Sunday but lost out to Tampa Bay.
  • Joe Haggerty via twitter: Source saying Jaromir Jagr isn’t interested in the Canadiens or Bruins. Talking with the Stars.

    The Red Wings have already locked up Zetterberg, Franzen and Kronwall until they’re 40-41 years old, do they really think these contracts won’t hurt them?

    I bet if every team interested in Parise and Suter started saying for everyday you make us wait we take a million off our offer they’d sign pretty quick

    90 million is just crazy for this guy…

    to keep things in perspective… here is a comparison between phaneuf and suter… same draft year…

    GP G A P +/- PPG
    SUTER 542 38 200 238 43 11
    PHANEUF 552 97 215 312 5 58

    the per season dollars is reasonable.. but the term… 13 years… yikes…
