Looking at this weekends comments a little differently now..


I was almost certain Suter wanted to leave and was all for trading him. After thinking about the comments that Ryan Suter made for a couple of days and reading many, many articles, I've came to the conclusion that those comments may very well end up helping us in the long run. I read an article by Paul McCann a few moments ago and he made an interesting point that kind of slipped my mind. It almost seems as if all of the media attention in a big market, Ottawa, made Suter seem very uncomfortable. I've always figured Suter to be the kind of player that likes being somewhat private in the media, after this weekend and the way his comments grew legs and apparently booked a ticket out of Nashville I think he learned a valuable lesson. That it may be nice to have the exposure & media popularity in a big market but they will twist and turn your words and make your life unnecessarily complicated. Think that Suter got a small taste of what he is supposedly after (Bright Lights, Big Cities, & "Greener Grass"), I dont believe that he enjoyed it too much either. My two cents is that the National Media that we are not accustomed to down here in Nashville may have rubbed ol Sutes the wrong way & possibly done us a favor by making him appreciate what he has down here and make him realize the grass may not be greener before he supposedly jumps ship. Certainly would be funny if after making those comments he did indeed sign before Feb. 27th, we'd have the Canadian & National media to thank for that IMO. Thoughts? Make any sense to anyone?
