Like Beaker mentioned, the only thing I don't like about Sutton is his salary for the next 2 years (we have too many to sign to be tied up with Sutton's salary).
But keep up the good ideas...
I'm getting a little tired with the Bouwmeester idea because we're gonna have to overpay like crazy to get him. Also, Bouwmeester has ZERO playoffs experience, plus is seen by some as "too soft", especially for his size. I think people are doing more salivating because they see him on paper
and automatically think the HABS will be STRONGER contenders... I'm not so sure about that
That #4 dman we may need in the near future (___?___) might not need a known, star name (like Bouwmeester), but may be the dman we need.
I get what you're saying but... not sure we would be stronger with Bowmeester replacing Brisebois/O'Byrne ?
