Based on what he has already done, the increased PP time he will get in Pgh (2nd unit) and that he has not hit his peak as of yet, Sutter is capable of scoring 40-50 points in the 3rd line role. Given that Staal never scored 50 points as a majority 3rd line player, I'm not convinced that we are losing a whole lot with Staal gone. If Sutter can put together a 20-goal and 45-point season while performing a shutdown role, there will be very little to complain about in terms of the trade. Perhaps the complaints will begin to accumulate from the Canes' end?
