08:35 AM ET 08.15 | Minnesota attorney Neil Sheehy is slightly closer to the offseason momentum in Minnesota than your average fan in the "State of Hockey," and he's putting his wallet behind it. [Sheehy], who represents new Wild defenseman Ryan Suter, has owned two Wild season tickets. But with the addition this summer of Suter and fellow free agent Zach Parise, Sheehy bought eight more season tickets. "The Wild have made a commitment to having a great product, and I just showed my enthusiasm by buying 10 season tickets," Sheehy said. ... The Wild aren't expected to give Zach Parise and Ryan Suter their $10 million signing bonuses until the day they're due, which is Saturday. Each day the Wild can hold on to the money saves the team about $1,300 in interest.

Not that I wouldn't do the same since you would just be throwing money away but The Tennessean must be right they are in a pinch otherwise why would T&R have two threads about it in one day.

If the Wild keep this up, Sutter, Heatley and Parise might go on strike during the lockout.

Why would you pay anything before its due?

Why is this the cause celebre this week on T&R?

because writing about something relevant, like say .....CBA NEGOTIATIONS would require a bit of work and research. And with back-to-school season here, the interns are busy, new clothes, crayons, paste and such won't be on sale forever

I knew they were giving monkeys typewriters these days but crayons and paste seems a little excessive

Speaking of which, I was stunned by how reasonable the counter offer of the NHLPA was. I haven't seen a side by side comparison of the owners and players proposals, but it seems like the differences weren't that great.

And ..... they'll have to come up with a Donald Fehr picture! Do you know how much work that is?

I have to agree it does seem quite reasonable

This is Fehr winning the PR battle. You can bet there is more to come from the NHLPA's side.

Because if the league locks out, it won't be because of the players. They wanted to make that much clear.Plus, god only knows what kinda hidden gems Fehr has poked in between those lines.

I agree with this. If nothing else, Fehr knows how to manipulate the press and therefore, the public.
