Sutter is a good, possibly great third-line center who seems to have the skill and size to play wing occasionally on the second line. I like that he's good in his own zone and good on faceoffs. I like that he's right-handed for faceoffs as well. He is clearly very mobile and has pretty good size, but I think it's pretty clear already why that trade had so many other pieces coming our way.
I liked what Sutter brought to the Canes before he was a Penguin, he was one of the few of that Sutter clan that impressed me. But I always thought with the way the Canes develop and their system, he would fall through the cracks and never grow as a player.

Now that he is in the Pens system and behind 2 of the best C's in the game, he has the time to really grow and get better and they will build on his strengths and hopefully the rest follows.
