The start to NHL free agency has lacked a flutter of activity. Most believe that is because the entire NHL world is waiting to see where Zach Parise and Ryan Suter decide to play next. Their likely large contract offers on the table prevent many teams from making other moves.

The start to NHL free agency has lacked a flutter of activity. Most believe that is because the  entire NHL world is waiting to see where Zach Parise and Ryan Suter decide to play next. Their likely large contract currently sitting out there prevent many teams from making other moves.

Yesterday, CSN Flyers Insider Tim Panaccio tweeted that the Flyers made offers to both Parise and Suter and that they were in excess of 12 years and $80 milliion. Today, he adds that if it’s all about the money, the Flyers would win out.
