That will cost you an arm and a friggin leg though. I assume Minny wants to acquire him from Nashville now and not run the risk of him hitting free agency or being traded to another team who aggressively tries to sign him.

You want to talk about accelerating a re-tool, that's how you do that.

It pretty much comes down to luck though. They're lucky that Parise is from Minnesota and Suter close-by, and that they wanted to sign together.

Parise's deal is $98M/13 yrs - $7.53M per.

Yeah, I was thinking the same.

I don't think there's any way that Weber winds up in Minnesota too. They are up against the cap.

Why did they have to pay over 7.5 million on a THIRTEEN year term? When was the last time that happened? Only one player: Crosby. 13 years...deserves a tiny discount to 6.5, come on. At least under 7.

Suter got the same deal as Parise. So Minny just added $15M to their annual cap hit.

Thank goodness that's not us. The only guy I want to pay that much to is Karlsson. Those are 2 terrible contracts.

Those are 2 contracts at the going rate for star players in the NHL in 2012.

Indeed. But what about the NHL in 2025 when they're both 40 and getting paid 7.5?

Neither guy is worth that long-term a deal, but that's what it took to land them I guess. I wouldn't want either guy on a 13 year contract. Silly.

Don't think so...his contract will run out before the Wild are truly ready to contend IMO.

Maybe he actually gives a Dung about surrounding himself with other players?

Heatley acted as an advisor to the newly-minted overpaid players.
