I like Sutter, but lets be honest, he's not Jordan Staal. The other pieces were a pick and a prospect. Now, the Pens were listed as the favorite to win the cup at the time of the trade, and they traded away a fan favorite who was their best penalty killer, best defensive forward, and also capable of scoring 25+ goals a year. I think if you now asked Poile or Lam if they would do things differently knowing what they know now, I'm sure they make a different decision.
difference being, they didn't trade Staal while they were half way thru the season, and 2nd best team in the league

The Devils got to the SCF, i'm sure Lou is not having any deep regrets
