Ryan Suter: 13-Year Deal With Minnesota

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Suter has signed a 13-year with Minnesota, according to the Minneapolis Star-Tribune's Michael Russo.

Recommendation: The forgone conclusion had been Suter going to Detroit, but developments out of Minnesota have Suter opting to go to the Wild with Zach Parise likely to follow. Suter is arguably the top defenseman in the free agent pool and will now be relied upon to be the team's stopper and minutes eater. Suter has put up over 35 points like clockwork the last four seasons and the ever-present question will be how Suter can adapt to life without Shea Weber. Don't overpay for Suter on draft day, but he's near the top of the second-tier of defensemen.
