They are actually pretty similar players & if anything Kennedys shown more offensive flare. They are all 3rd liners. That's just reality. Sutter is never going to have the offensive skills to be a 2nd line player in anything other than a pinch.

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.

he did put up 21 goals in a year where he moved up to the 2nd line. I'm not saying he's a legit 2nd liner. But for what we need, he's the best we have. Well, him or Cooke. Both are better than TK on that 2nd line LW.
