I am going to get flamed unmercifully for that stand, I know. But lets face it folks, for many of you, you know you wanted it. You were just waiting for someone to say it and if I don't miss my guess, most of you figured I was gonna be the guy.
I personally don't think he is ready and Sutter said he won't play in North America until he is ready to play in the top 6... not just be an everyday player... and @ a 1.3 million cap hit I think he is too expensive for 3rd line duties this season
