The speculation is now over for the landing spots of free agents Ryan Suter and Zach Parise as they both landed 13 year $98 million contracts with the Minnesota Wild.
Bruins fans’ dream of Parise wearing black and gold in 2013 can finally come to an end as Parise had himself plenty of his own fireworks on the fourth of July signing with the Wild. Parise was born and raised in Minnesota which could be in part on why he decided to sign with the Wild.
Reports surfaced this morning that Bruins indeed sent a “significant offer” Parise’s way, but the terms of that offer was not disclosed.
It was rumored by Michael Russo of the Star Tribune that Ryan Suter and Zach Parise wanted to play alongside one another for a long time. They finally received their wish as the Minnesota Wild become relevant again in an always tough Western Conference.
Parise has 410 points (194G 216A) in 502 career games and is one of those 30 goal scorers the Bruins could have used, but that fantasy is no longer.
Suter has played in 542 games notching 38 goals while dishing out 200 assists (238 points) in seven years.
The Bruins will have to put their best foot forward with the roster they have. The Bruins have high hopes as their puck-moving defenseman Dougie Hamilton looks to earn a roster spot as well as forward Ryan Spooner.
