The Minnesota Wild made major headlines earlier in the week when they bought out the contracts of Zach Parise and Ryan Suter. They have been great players for a long time but the Wild felt that it was time to move on. When they both signed with the Wild on July 4th, 2012, they instantly became Stanley Cup contenders. They were never able to get over the hump, however, and the Chicago Blackhawks were a big reason why.
The Chicago Blackhawks might consider adding a free agent this summer.
Now, could Parise or Suter consider the team that beat them so much in the playoffs? One of them is a better fit than the other on the current Blackhawks. Parise is still a decent player that could contribute some offense in a middle-six left-wing role but Suter would really be a fit on the team right now. He is still a good defenseman than could really help.
