    Reports are coming in that Ryan Suter will decide on the Red Wings offer. Something crazy like a 12 year deal...

    A "Not so fast" type denial from Red Wings camp...likely means it's a done deal.

    While I don't think anyone is going to kid themselves that Suter will fill the enormous shoes left by an all time great defenseman like Nik Lindstrom, this could turn out to be a far bigger deal for Detroit than just landing the best d-man on the free agent market. Former teammate and perennial Norris trophy nominee Shay Weber has gone on record saying that he'd love to finish out his career with his good friend Suter. This has naturally lead to rampant speculation that wherever Suter goes, Weber will soon follow either via trade or a year from now when he too hits unrestricted free agency. A two-for-one like that could ensure that Detroit remains a force to be reckoned with for another decade. Just what the rest of the league wants to see hey? It would especially sting for the Predators to lose their two best players to their biggest rival.

    If Suter and Weber both ended up in Detroit the arena in Nashville we lose it's roof when they came back. Fierce bunch.
