That’s what the Gore is telling us. It looks like Bubba’s in the right mind for a good, old fashioned swap meet.
The Detroit Red Wings are crossing their fingers that Ryan Suter reaches free agency on July 1. But to get a crack at the Nashville defenseman, the Wings might have to get aggressive before that date, based on a report by Dennis Bernstein of The Fourth Period: “League exec told us last night he expects Preds to deal Suter rights around draft, ‘just like they did with Hamhuis, Hartnell and Timonen”.
That’s pretty much in the rumor stages right now. But, it’s a nice ditty to discuss.
So, we know little Bubba ain’t dealing with Detroit. So he moves Suter’s rights and it’s to another team other than the Wings? Ok. Doesn’t mean the Wings aren’t still in the running. Just that someone else has exclusive negotiating rights up until 1 July. And if Suter wants Detroit, he’ll get Detroit.
