Ryan Suter Rumors: Are Red Wings His Top Choice?

There is a common theme emerging when it comes to reports about Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter's future. For starters, Suter is not expected to re-sign with the Predators before July 1, meaning he will likely become a free agent. Secondly, the Detroit Red Wings are considered Suter's most likely landing spot.

The latest evidence that the Red Wings are Suter's preferred team comes from a report by CSNPhilly.com's Tim Panaccio. The focus of the report is on how Suter won't end up signing with the Philadelphia Flyers, but there is a Red Wings-related tidbit in it.

In fact, the source said, all of Suter’s preferred destinations, should he leave the Predators, are in the Western Conference – not the East.

Detroit is generally conceded to be his top choice.

The obvious caveat with any report like this is that nothing really matters until July 1. Even so, there's no denying that there's an awful lot of smoke surrounding the possibility of Suter ultimately signing with the Red Wings.
