Lessio was another guy that Spott seemed to like and so he played a higher role (energy guy on the top six).

I would say, based on the Canada-Russia Challenge, Sutter's competing with guys like Brendan Leipsic and Tom Wilson for a spot.
Thanks Kevin. I was thinking that as well. It might come down to which players the team has that didn't make the NHL, and if the team wants to run 3 scoring lines. I was thinking from that starting point (3 scorign lines) that Sutter might be working against the other energy / grinder types.

But if the team loses some of the top line talent, I defiantly could see the scenario that you describe with Jenner higher in the lineup and a guy like Sutter on the 4th line.
