Pius Suter

Pius Suter’s role with this team is pretty much the reason why I feel he needs to be traded. He’s supposed to be the Red Wings second line center, but everytime he is given that spot in the lineup, it makes me want to hurl. It’s not a pleasant sight for me to see.

Now, I know that is harsh for me to say- and I get it. However, Suter is not a second-line center. He just isn’t. No matter how much we wish he was, he’s not. If he was, we as Red Wings fans, wouldn’t be hoping for a top center in free agency or through the draft.

In a previous article I wrote how I’d like to say Joe Veleno should be the second line center. However, he hasn’t produced as a second line player and until he does so, that position will need to be filled.

Looking at what the Red Wings should do with Suter is what makes this hard. Suter still has a year left on his contract and is set to make $3,250,000 which, given the lack of production, will make him hard to deal. But, Yzerman found a suiter for Stecher therefore, finding a potential spot for Suter shouldn’t be too difficult.
