I'm thinking Parise would also help carry the team if either sid or geno go down again. Sorry for the negative thinking but its gonna always be a concern.

I think there is a very good chance we get either Suter or Parise. It would be very tough to grab both. We would probably have to dump more salary. What is more likely is the Pens signing Suter and trading a couple of our defensive prospects to bring in a winger for Sid.

I hope they move for the rights of one of these guys. Even with the $15M they have right now, 21 teams still have more money than the Pens. I hope there's been some indication that one of these guys likes a competitive offer from the Pens.

Sid and Parise apparently got engaged recently, so there seems to be some indication.

Yeah, but Heatley is Parise's mistress, so he may want to sign with the Wild.

That must have been awkward at the Staal wedding.

Suter is a true number 1 defenseman. If you don't believe that, you have to acknowledge that he's as close to one as you'll get in free agency at 27.

Despite all the defensemen in the system, they're now missing something for next season. Suter would be a perfect fit in just about every way (though you can say that about him and every team.

If Suter's rights were available, that would be awesome. Pretty sure RS has reached-out to Nashville and stated interest if they decide to trade his rights somewhere, but GM Poile has said that isn't an option yet. Maybe something changes and they really feel Suter won't re-up after July 1st, but for now, looks like Nash/Poile thinks they can still retain him.

The guy is a stud and would be a #1 dman on about any roster. He log a ton of minutes, has some offensive abilites, smart and is pretty solid in his own end. Love to see him in a Pens' uni but I don't think it will happen.

Him and Letang would be on the ice for 25+
Niskanen and Orpik would be 20+
Engo and Despres would 15+

Not bad IMO. But until he is a Penguin it doesn't matter. We all know the value of Suter, and as such I refuse to expect him in a Pens jersey.

I don't understand why people cite "ability to log a ton of minutes" as if it's a skill in and of itself. They're supposed to be well conditioned athletes, they should all be able to do that if asked.

If you want to say "good enough that you feel comfortable throwing them out there for huge minutes" that's fine. But then it becomes something that kind of goes without saying.

Phrase is not directly stamina related, per se. Is a valued skill among people around the game. "Minute munchers" are rarer than you think.

But what does it even mean though? What are you actually describing if not stamina?

More or less that the player is a top 2 defenseman.
