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.
from what I have been told: if it’s strictly $$, Flyers get both Parise/Suter based on offers.

A Parise pairing with Claude Giroux did give many Flyers fans a wet dream last night, but are 12 year contracts ever a good idea? Your initial impression of these rumors?
