The Latest Talk On Suter And Yandle

from Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly,

A source told CSNPhilly.com early Saturday morning that Penguins general manager Ray Shero is working hard to get Suter’s rights from Nashville.

Even though Suter has expressed specific interest in staying in the Western Conference – and going to either Detroit or Minnesota in free agency – Shero feels he has strong ties to Suter as having served as an assistant GM between 1998-2006 when the Predators first came into the NHL.

“Ray feels he can talk Suter into coming to Pittsburgh,” the source said.

Shero is the guy who drafted Suter in 2003….

As for the Flyers, a Western Conference source confirmed that the Flyers and Red Wings both have significant interest in Keith Yandle.

“Phoenix isn’t actively shopping him but they said they would listen to offers and they need an impact center in return,” the source said.

That was shot down late last night….  If Poile deals Suter’s rights, it’s saying that they dont have a way to keep talent, and the season tickets start to drop immediately.  Rob Rossi started all of that last night…

Panaccio is always behind the eight ball on stories.

Poile said no one tried to trade for Suter’s rights. “I’m looking you in the eye and telling you.”

That was tweeted 5 min. ago.

This was shot down last night, Panaccio has stuck with it anyways, and now it’s been shot down again anyways.
