The Detroit Red Wings have something that very few other teams can offer: a winning tradition. The Red Wings were arguably the best team in the NHL over the past 20 years, making six final appearances and winning four Stanley Cups.
Under GM Ken Holland, the Red Wings have been able to maintain success, despite the departure of players like Steve Yzerman, Brendan Shanahan, Sergei Fedorov, Larry Murphy, Igor Larionov and many others.
Holland was able to add some depth this offseason, signing Jonas Gustavsson, Jordin Tootoo and Mikael Samuelsson to contracts that fit the team's budget.
The Red Wings' roster is littered with talented players, many of whom are just entering their prime. If Suter wants a chance to win a Stanley Cup, his best bet is to sign with the Red Wings or the Penguins.
