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.
You don't draft that type of player in the early to mid 2nd round when there are more skilled guys on the board. I like a tough and hard to play against team, but there is a time and a place to draft those types of players.
