"How much? Whoa."

From the Minnesota Wild’s beat writer Michael Russo of the Star Tribune comes some news. The Minnesota Wild have landed the off-season’s biggest prize.

From Russo:

The Wild has landed its blue-chip defenseman and is working toward landing the big fish, blue-chip forward as well.

After an impressive maneuver Tuesday to get itself in front of free-agent Ryan Suter, the Wild has agreed to terms on a 13-year contract with defenseman Ryan Suter, sources say.

But the Wild’s not done in its attempt to shake a hockey-mad market into a frenzy.

According to sources, the Wild was working on agreeing to terms with Minneapolis-born Zach Parise on a 13-year deal.

If successful, and it appears as if it will be, Parise and Suter are forming a star-studded tandem that can come to Minnesota and perhaps help alter the fortunes of a franchise that has missed the playoffs four consecutive seasons.

More on this as it develops, AKA Parise does the same.

  1. So Ryan Suter is worth only $6-million less than Sidney Crosby? Is He even a top-5 D-man in the NHL? Really…. Give me a break. Oh well, its classic Free Agency BS in July. It’s no wonder the Canucks never look at any of the top free agents every year, they made their huge contract mistake already with Luongo and it seems they learned a lesson. Wasn’t the lockout and the implementation of the salary cap supposed to stop players like Ryan Suter from making 12-million next year? I wonder how Shea Weber feels about Suter’s new deal. I think since Suter is making the same as Parise, If he doesn’t get as many points as Parise, Ryan Suter should have to give me $1-million for the pain and suffering I have been caused by this huge load of BS.
