Red Wings Rumors: Has Ryan Suter Picked Detroit?

It appears the Ryan Suter sweepstakes may be over and the Detroit Red Wings may have won it. Nick Kypreos is reporting that there is some chatter that Suter has selected the Red Wings as his new team.

In a follow-up tweet, Kypreos said that he is "still looking for confirmation" of Suter selecting the Red Wings, but "the sense is the decision is coming soon."

If this turns out to be true, the Red Wings will have landed their top free agent target. Signing Suter is absolutely crucial after Nicklas Lidstrom retired and Brad Stuart departed for the San Jose Sharks earlier this offseason. There was a big void left in the defense, and the hope all along was for Suter to help fill it.

SB Nation Detroit will have more on this news as it develops.

UPDATE: According to his agent, Suter has not yet made a decision.
