That's a BOLD prediction, but what I like about him is the fact he will actually look to play defense first. He fits this team a lot better. He wants to shut people down and his speed is instant transition hockey.
I'll say Staal has more points but Sutter's role is very key for our team's success.
It was my off the wall part of my predictions. That said I did explain some basis. Pens were number one offensively by ten goals over the next team. Carolina was in the bottom half of the nhl in scoring. Staal will have more offensive opportunities. Sutter will be on a team built to score. A lot. A lot more than Carolina. It us unlikely. Off the wall. Yet could happen.
I wasn't ready for Sutter's speed there. He darted through the neutral almost like Sid does. That first step was so damn quick.
Oh yeah, me too, it was a great play. But then he went right around him again later in the period. But again, he's a good player, so not a big indictment against Despres. Letang was the one who botched it ultimately on that first goal anyway.
