It is far too early in my view to assess whether or not management "whiffed on this one", as you also noted that he is still quite young. Guys progress at different rates. He still projects as a potential 3rd or 4th line energy/checking guy in the NHL right now, is a guy that competes hard, and he is a kid of good character. I think he deserves at least a few years at the pro level in the A prior to assigning any designation toward his future worth.

BTW, while everyone has in the past focused near solely on stats whenever Sutter is discussed on this board, I'd like to add that he is also the assistant captain of a team that has won its past 18 consecutive games.
