08:25 AM ET 06.25 | Forgive Wild fans for their wide eyes as July 1 approaches. [On Sunday,] a crowded field of suitors can officially begin chasing New Jersey Devils forward Zach Parise and Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter -- the two biggest prizes on the free-agent market and two players who could do nothing less than change the Wild's future should they wind up in St. Paul. ... If the NHL salary cap stays the same as it was last year, the Wild will have almost $20 million to spend -- and people close to the situation have said since the end of the season that the team plans to do everything it can to land Parise (who grew up in the Twin Cities) and Suter (a Madison, Wis. native whose wife is from Bloomington).

"who could do nothing less than change the Wild's future should they wind up in St. Paul."

That is some very enlightening reporting right there.

The Wild are not the only cash cow team out there. I would be shocked if they landed one, yet both of these guys.

Suter to Pittsburgh. Parise stays in Jersey.

Since Shero got rid of Staal and Michalek the Pens can bid on one of those guys now. I've heard that Sid and Parise are friends too. So you never know.

Look, I have enough money to take Bar Refaeli out to dinner, but that doesn't mean it's going to happen.

June 25, 2012  09:53 AM ET

I don't know why Suter would leave Nashville to go to Minnesota.

I think Parise would be a great fit with the Pens.
