Both Parise and Suter were seen as the top free agents in a very thin free agent market. Parise is a former New Jersey Devils playmaker. Suter comes to Minnesota as half of the duo with Shea Weber on the Nashville blue line.
Parise, who is 27, scored 31 goals and 69 points last season in his first year as the Devils' captain. Parise attributed a lot to the team making the Stanley Cup finals.
Suter, also 27, was the top defenseman available to teams this summer. Suter spent all seven of his NHL seasons with the Predators where he featured career high in points in 2011-12, with seven goals and 39 assists.
