Unless you disagree that Sutter should be kept at the center position, then Cole and LaRose's absence is wholly inconsequential to Sutter (except that he won't have to skate with the offense-killing LaRose anymore).
My opinion is that Sutter is appropriately placed at third line center and he should not be moved to the wing just so he can get on one of the top two lines.
