It's fun to think about and JR said he did not want to give up Sutter, but Shero said the trade doesn't happen without him. I'd have liked to have gotten a pick or somthing back since I think we SLIGHTLY over paid, doubt the 22 was feasible but we prolly could have poached their 2nd.

But at the end of the day, I'm just happy we didn't get saddled with Paul Martin's 5m dollar headache. That's what I call addition by subtraction
