The question of which team All-Star defenseman Ryan Suter will sign with won't be answered for at least another day.
According to a report from USA Today's Kevin Allen, Suter's agent, Neil Sheehy, said via email that the defenseman will not make a decision on Tuesday. There was no word as to when Suter might make up his mind whether to stay with the Nashville Predators or go to another club -- Detroit, Minnesota and Philadelphia are said to be the teams most interested in signing him.
Suter and Zach Parise are the two big names in this year's free-agent pool. Parise has also said he's going to take more time before making a decision about whether to stay with the New Jersey Devils or sign elsewhere.
We're buyers. We're committed to winning. That's what [owner Vinnie Viola] has said all along and what we've said all along. We want to win. We want to win a championship. We're putting the pieces together, step by step, and we're hopeful that Jaromir can lead these young guys to the promised land. It's a win-win for us.
