from Michael Russo of the Star Tribune,
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.
