July 1, 2012, 9:38 PM

Defenceman Ryan Suter is leaning toward the Detroit Red Wings as his next destination, according to Sportsnet’s Nick Kypreos.

An unrestricted free agent, Suter is coming off a four-year, $14 million extension with the Nashville Predators.

In 79 games last season, the 27-year-old tallied seven goals and 39 assists. Suter is considered the top blueliner on the market and could be a suitable replacement for Nicklas Lidstrom, who recently retired.
