Watch brilliant Red Wings fan sales pitch/guilt trip to Zach Parise and Ryan Suter (VIDEO)

Detroit Red Wings fans have had it hard recently. Their last Stanley Cup was all the way back in 2008. They've had to watch some, but not all, of the most talented players in the world on a nightly basis. They had to wait a few years for their second Winter Classic.

With that in mind, The Triple Deke took its melancholy Red Wings case to unrestricted free agents Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, hoping Detroit's plight — and maudlin Sarah McLachlan abused animal music — would guilt them into signing on July 1.

Who could turn down a plea like that, other than someone who wants to score 50 goals playing with Sidney Crosby and another dude who might be offered the deed to Minnesota in order to play on the Wild's blue line?

Thanks to the Deke for the tip.
