Ryan Suter Meets With Red Wings; No Decision Coming On Tuesday

Oh, technology. On Tuesday afternoon, thanks to FlightAware.com, it was discovered that a plane owned by Mike Ilitch flew to Madison, Wisconsin. The speculation was that the purpose of the flight was for the Detroit Red Wings to meet with Ryan Suter, who lives in Madison, but that was just speculation.

Now, we have some actual confirmation that the Red Wings did meet with Suter. From the Free Press' Helene St. James:

Neil Sheehy, Suter's agent, told the USA Today's Kevin Allen that there will be no decision on Tuesday. Couple that with St. James' report and it looks like "Suter Watch" will continue into July 4 and possibly July 5. While it'd be fitting for Suter to make a decision on the Fourth of July given all of the fireworks that will be going off anyway, it seems he is planning to wait until later in the week.

UPDATE: According to Michael Russo, the Minnesota Wild also met with Suter on Tuesday.
