If they had approached him about extending his contract and he didn't want to and the Flames wanted something more for him in the summer than the compensation pick we'd get when he left as UFA (3rd rounder or lower in all likelihood) then that would be reason to trade him IMO.

I can see it going either way really. I have no doubt Sutter will listen to offers and I also have no doubt that a few teams out there would want him for the playoffs. It will probably depend on what type of offers Sutter will get. If an offer isn't substantially better than the pick we would end up with if he left then there's no reason to move him. And if they feel he will re-sign then there's no reason to move him either.
