I personally think he'll need someone to dish him up pucks, which is why seeing Bennett with him currently is interesting.
I doubt at 24 & over 300+ games played, & after showing very little signs of being an offensive player he is going develop that aspect of his game. I don't know where your seeing his shot as underrated. Guy has no finish. The puck comes off his stick flat & he lacks any offensive creativity. I agree he can get to open areas & has a sense where the pucks going but what happens when he gets open isn't going to produce a lot of points.
I know some people have been trying to believe we might have got a steal but Sutter will never be that player. He's a good defensive third line center who is going to put u around 35-40 points in a full season. Not much more.
That of course is only my opinion on him.
