I know it's tough, but we have to accept the fact that Jordan or anybody else wasn't coming here for a package entirely of futures. We kept Faulk and Murphy, which is the backbone of our defensive rebuild. We have a glut of defenders that should pan out.

Bottom line, Brandon Sutter is a 40 point defensive dynamo. He's a gamer. He's a great player. However, he's not Jordan Staal. We can't have it both ways. If he can play here as a second line center or even a first line center, we have made a positive move. The fact that he's still young means a lot of upside still there too.
