Sportsnet’s Bourne offers ‘two sentences’ on the Wings’ Gagner and Suter signings

Sportsnet’s Justin Bourne wrote two sentences regarding every free agent signing made yesterday, including a couple made by the Wings:

Sam Gagner, RW, Detroit
Contract: One year, $850,000 AAV

Smart player here, and you need guys with NHL experience around as you try to turn the metaphorical container ship around in the canal. No harm done on a one-year agreement.

Pius Suter, C, Detroit
Contract: Two years, $3.25 million AAV

This is a good bet on potential upside for a rebuilding team on the cheap. You need a few things to break your way to get back to great, and it’s not impossible Suter becomes a real contributor.
