I think the fact that we got 2 solid prospects out of it is still a win, but Sutter is making me wonder if the team is going to hang on to him because he was moved for Staal or because they think he can turn into a solid player.
I'd move Sutter for a top 6 winger in a heart beat, if a team was desperate enough to want him for that kind of price, a team with a brutally weak bottom 6 perhaps? I think Jeffrey can do as good of a job and learn to be better at the defensive side of the game as well as contribute offensively with increased minutes and a regular spot for once.
I think I would be choked to see Jeffrey get traded over Sutter and I would definitely hope Shero got burned if that happened, by seeing Jeffrey absolutely thrive elsewhere with the role he should have been given with the Pens.
1. Sutter's trade value (given how other teams will value him) may be greater than his value to the Pens (with JJ and Jeffrey).
2. Sutter is a RFA after this season. Anyone think he's worth the 3+ million a year he's going to want?
