Ryan Suter has agreed to a 13-year, $98 million contract with the Minnesota Wild.
The Wild opened their checkbook in a big way on Wednesday, signing Suter and Zach Parise, who were the best two players available in the free agent market, to identical big-money deals. Suter posted seven goals, 46 points, a plus-15 rating and 116 blocked shots in 79 games with Nashville last season. He logs big minutes and will be the top guy in Minnesota.
Zach Parise has inked a 13-year deal with the Minnesota Wild worth $98 million.
Parise is a star player who recorded 31 goals and 69 points with New Jersey last season. It was his first year back after a knee injury cut his 2010-11 season drastically short. He also had eight goals and seven assists in 24 playoff contests, while captaining the Devils to the Stanley Cup Finals. He should be counted on in all key situations with the Wild and will likely play alongside Mikko Koivu on the team's top line.
Darius Slay will be a star.
****ty day for the Wings. But family had a ton to do with this. Not a good day for the Wings but we aren't falling down either to the bottom dwellers level
