Suter scare: Penguins try to snare his rights, fail, pursue Keith Yandle from Phoenix, fail

Updated 2x at 11:15 PM: The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review’s Rob Rossi scared the s*** out of Wings fans. Pittsburgh Penguins GM Ray Shero apparently attempted to acquire the signing rights to Ryan Suter, but Predators GM David Poile informed Shero that the Preds want to hold onto Suter, let him test the UFA waters and circle back to Nashville:

Told #pens are looking into rights to Ryan Suter. They tried similar with Hamhuis 2 years ago #nhldraft
No on Suter for #pens ... He would not sign before July 1. Shero wants a top 2 pairing, been talking with #coyotes GM #nhldraft
#pens have deal close with #coyotes #nhldraft
#pens and #coyotes have a deal
#pens were talkin Michalek and player for Yandle #coyotes #nhldraft

This story is in progress and I will update it as necessary.

Update 11 PM: Bob McKenzie, on TSN’s live feed: “It’s totally false, I talked to Ray [Shero].”

Update #2: And here’s what really happened, per ESPN’s Pierre LeBrun:

Pitt has dealt Z. Michalek to Phx in exchange for prospect Harrison Ruopp plus a 3rd-round pick this year (81st) and goalie Marc Cheverie.”

This does mean that the Pens, who traded


Jordan Staal away, will now be players for Suter and Zach Parise come July 1, but until then…
