Day one of NHL free agency is starting to wind down and the top two UFAs are still unsigned. Both Ryan Suter and Zach Parise fielded calls from what seems like most of the league on Sunday, and they are planning to wait to make a decision until Monday.
While no firm decisions have been made one way or the other, Suter and Parise have at least started to narrow down the list of teams they are interested in. Luckily for the Detroit Red Wings, both Suter and Parise still have them in the mix heading into Monday.

Red Wings general manager Ken Holland also said that the team made "presentations or pitches to the Parise and Suter camps" on Sunday. In other words, their work is done. Now it's up to the free agents to make their decisions.
By this time on Monday, the Red Wings should have a much better idea of what their roster will look like going forward, allowing additional moves to fall into place.
