Brandon Sutter. Has size, is a great two way player/ shut down guy. He has been in the league for 4-5 years or something and has been around a 30 pt guy and he has shown he has a little offensive upside. Is an RFA this year and likely looking for a pay increase and possibly a bigger role. Pittsburgh probably isn't in a position to offer both. Try to get him in a cheap deal or offer sheet him at 3.3 would only cost us a 2nd.
