Suter Out Thurs - Could Miss All-star Game

Standard Spin: Preds' defenseman Ryan Suter missed Tuesday's game with an upper-body injury and is now confirmed out for Thursday's tilt against the Blue Jackets.  He said he would see how he felt Saturday and try to return, but his comments to The Tennessean hinted that Suter may be out longer, "If I can't play here, I don't see how I could go do that (play in the All-star game).  It doesn't look good to your teammates."  

After tonight, the Predators play 3 more times between now and the All-star break, and Suter should be considered questionable for all of those dates.  If he doesn't play Saturday, the smart move would be to yank him from your lineup for next week.  (Jan.19)
