Agreed, plus I like the fact that the 26 year old Sutter is right handed, in addition to being a great shutdown, gritty, two-way center ala the supremo 3rd line center.Zedlee wrote:Henrick, Sutter and Bo are our top 3 centres...pretty solid IMO.
Can't help but wonder though, what is the "plan"? This is not a trade for the future, but a trade that helps us make the playoffs next year. Hard to see how Sutter fits long term...his next contract will likely be more than his current rate so is he trade deadline fodder? I guess JB doesn't think any of the young centres will be ready anytime soon.
Obviously JB did not see Bonino as a LT solution and Clendenning was redundant with Corrado pushing to make the team.
Time will tell....
To me this means Horvat should/could be bumped up to 2nd line duties next season.
