Zach Parise, Ryan Suter Sign with Wild; NHL Moves On

It's tough on the legs carrying all that money.

It appears the two biggest targets in NHL free agency 2012 have landed, and they're both headed to the same place: The Minnesota Wild have agreed to terms with Ryan Suter and Zach Parise, according to multiple reports (led by Michael Russo of the Star-Trib). A reported 13 years and $98 million for each of them.

Speculation Tuesday night had both heading to Minnesota in an ostensibly package deal, and for once the speculation was dead on. The Wild get instant, massive (and expensive) upgrades at two key positions and vault themselves into a competitive position in the Northwest. Now the NHL insiders shall get on with the business of other signings and trades -- or maybe for a day, just celebrating a mid-week holiday in the U.S.

But here's some other reading for the Islanders fan in you:
