NHL Free Agency 2012: Penguins Lose Out On Ryan Suter

The Pittsburgh Penguins have lost out on two key free agents on Wednesday as they were unable to sign free agent defenseman Zach Parise, who signed with the Minnesota Wild, and the latest player that the Penguins lost out on is Ryan Suter who also singed with the Wild. The deal for Suter is reportedly worth $98 million over 13 years.

This is not a total surprise that Suter and Parise landed on the Wild since the two have been talking about playing on the same team, and Suter said that it would be "really cool" if they landed on the same team.

Suter and Parise were the only two free agents that the Penguins were really interested in this off season, so if the they are going to make any moves it will likely be via trades.
