Two reasons:

1. My feeling is that Disco Dan Bylsma may need some time before he trusts Sutter as much as he trusted Staal.

I'm not knocking Sutter's ability to play defense but I'd be shocked if he gets 20 mins a game like Staal did.

2. Sid and Geno both are going to have to play more minutes, and the majority of the Staal minutes started in the defensive zone. Verifiable if needed.
