Greg Campbell? Kamil Kreps? Kristian Huselius? Niklas Hagman?
I think if you look over the Panthers' draft history since Sutter's been director of player development he's not had a lot to work with that isn't already in the NHL, and since the team's not had much of a development program, he had neither the raw material to work with nor the tools.
But, in defense of your position, Sutter wasn't a great coach for us, either.
