Secondly, where is he wrong?

You keep saying that Tyler Kennedy can be a top-6 forward, when the truth is that he's an above average 3rd liner. His career high is 45 points. That only happened once, when he was getting tons of prime ice-time due to injuries. He's not a 3rd liner. I don't care if he scored 20 goals once. So did Michal Handzus. You're not going to convince anyone that Kennedy is a suitable second liner.

You also insist that Dustin Jeffery would be a great #3C for the Sharks, when he hasn't done much of anything to show that. He's had a couple of nice seasons in the NHL, but if he's such a great #3C on a playoff team, we'll add to Clowe to get Sutter and you can use Jeffery. It isn't worth trading Ryane Clowe for Dustin Jeffery when we have James Sheppard (go on laugh it up, but he's been great) who could fill the same kind of role we'd ask of Jeffery without us downgrading Clowe to Kennedy.

You insist that he hasn't "done his homework" because he insists on Sutter. He has every right to do that. Clowe for Sutter is a much better deal valuewise than Kennedy and Jeffery for Clowe.

If you think there isn't much of a gap between Clowe and Kennedy, then why don't you use Kennedy in your top-6?
He's been injured and hurt for pretty much a season and a half and is finally healthy.

Because the pens are looking to get tougher to play against, as ou should know they play two totally different type of games.

Also if kennedy isn't moved there is a good chance he WILL be in the top 6.
