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.
Not only is it a great idea, but if you don't [start using analytics] you're going to fall behind. You have to be on the cutting edge. It was [Arizona Coyotes assistant general manager] Darcy Regier who said, 'If you didn't invent it, you have to be the second- or third-best copier, because if you're fourth or fifth you've got no chance.'
