Suter, Suter, Suter...Nice addition perhaps. What about pursuing a trade for Jason Garrison or Jack Johnson or Alex Pietragelo. Let's face it the Wings need to get a little bigger.

Suters level of play 46 points withstanding is not worth anything near 8 million. He might be worth 4 and that might be high. The point is Suters level of play does not come close to that of Lidstrom which translates to you can not pay him more than you paid Lidstrom because it is a business you don't want to overpay which is why I suggest a trade not free agency.

46 points for Suter. How much are you willing to pay for those 46 points? The Wings would be foolish to pay him what they paid Lidstrom (a fixture for 20 years) it would be a slap in the face. Suter is no where near the level of play that Lidstrom showed the league for 20 years
Which is why I would immediately trade Nash before he could ever wear the sweater. Don't have any idea what NHL12 is.
Here's one for you...trade Fanzen and perhaps a prospect for Rick Nash and then trade Nash for a ligit #1 D'man. You folks need to think outside the box if you are looking for the Wings to make positive changes over the summer.
The point is this...why is everyone so focused on Suter and his free agent status. My opinion is he is not a #1 or #2 defenseman. Why do you feel Suter is the answer? Why would you spend huge dollars for a #3? The Wings have plenty of pieces that could be traded for a ligit #1 D'man
TORONTO, MAYBE COLORADO OR EVEN PHILADELPHIA. THEY PUT UP WITH ERIC LINDROS WHO OLY PLAYED WHEN HE WANTED TO.
Franzen can be traded for a REAL #1 defenseman. FRANZEN only plays when he feels like it.
Suter is not worth Lidstrom or Kronwall dollars, he might not even be worth Ian White dollars. Dennis Wideman can replace Brad Stuart. Wideman is worth Brad Stuart money.
