For the first time Tuesday, the Wild met face-to-face with Nashville Predators defenseman Ryan Suter.
It appears as if Tuesday morning, Wild owner Craig Leipold, GM Chuck Fletcher and coach Mike Yeo boarded a private plane at St. Paul Airport and flew to International Falls to pick up Suter's agent, Neil Sheehy.
They then gave him a lift to Madison for the meeting with Suter. Also Tuesday, the Red Wings also reportedly met with Suter in Madison.
Late Tuesday afternoon, the Wild brass returned to St. Paul with Sheehy, who then flew back to International Falls.
Leipold, Fletcher and Yeo, though cordial at the airport, wouldn't comment. Fletcher said he couldn't speculate as to what Parise and Suter would decide.
