Suter Just May Stay In Nashville

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

Suter is represented by Neil Sheehy, who played professionally with his uncle Gary in Calgary; and generally does a good job of gauging his clients wishes. Not every agent gets that.

Some will sell their clients to the highest bidder and then convince the client that it is the right step in their careers. You wonder if Ilya Bryzgalov might have second thoughts after pursuing top dollar in Philadelphia rather than trying to make it work in Phoenix. Ville Leino didn’t find the grass any greener in Buffalo, nor did Christian Ehrhoff.

Sometimes, the best landing place for a player is the place where you were all along, especially if it’s been a good fit for the player and the team. As much as people want to drum up some intrigue because it is more fun to speculate about where he might go rather than where he might stay, logic and history tells you that all this Suter talk is just that - talk - and that when the dust settles and the Preds make him an offer, it’ll be enough to get a deal done.

more plus some Kings and Coyotes talk…

How much did Poile pay him to post that

...they didn’t blink when Shea Weber received a $7.5-million arbitration award last summer, making him the highest-paid defenceman in the game.

Didn’t blink? They tried to offer him something like $4.5MM and bashed his talent in hopes of getting a better deal. This article is a total shine job for Nashville.

Wouldn’t be more like they stared down Weber and flinched thereby giving him the 7.5 million?
