Sutter's greatest asset is his work ethic. in nearly 300 games in a Hurricanes sweater, I never once saw him slack off on a shift. Other than that, he's crazy fast (speed and acceleration), and has a pretty decent wrister that he's able to get off quickly. Only downside is he isn't very creative. It seemed like all his offense came off the rush, and he isn't the worlds greatest passer, but he isn't a slouch either. I think he's capable of putting up a lot more points if given the opportunity. He spent all of last season with Dwyer and Nodl for Christ sake. His sophomore season he actually spent time on the PP, and played with Ray Whitney for a chunk of time, and his stats speak for themselves, he was on pace for a 45 point season as a 20 year old defensive minded forward. There's untapped potential there, and I think he'd look pretty good on Malkin's wing.

On defense, he isn't overly physical, but makes up for that by always being in position to **** up the opposing teams plays. He has a knack for breaking up passes, being as tall as he is helps too, great wingspan, and really blocking shots. He was right at the top of the league for blocked shots and takeaways by forwards. He also VERY rarely takes penalites, which is amazing considering he was always matched up against the best forwards the other team had to offer.
