Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants,
I got a few tweets last night asking if the Wild may trade for Ryan Suter’s rights now that it’s out there that he’s supplied a list of teams to the Nashville Predators that he’s willing to have his rights traded to.
I never saw those reports, so I gave Suter’s agent, Neil Sheehy, a call and he denied them, saying it’s “100 percent untrue” that Suter 1) has a list of teams he would and would not go to and 2) that he’s given any list to Preds GM David Poile.
That doesn’t mean a deal with Nashville will get done prior to July 1, but Sheehy at least denies there’s any list(s).
I’ve gotten a ton of questions as to what I think will happen with Suter.
My opinion is essentially the same as what I wrote I believed will happen with Zach Parise: I think both will become free agents.
That’s not to say that after July 1 Parise wouldn’t go back to New Jersey and Suter wouldn’t go back to Nashville, but players like Parise and Suter have this opportunity to become free agents in their prime only once in their careers.
