Sutton underperformed and struggled with injuries until this season, which has been a totally different story.
Fans who don't watch the Isles think that the Sens are overpaying, but purely based on performance this season Sutton's probably the best defenseman moved so far (aside from Phaneuf obviously, and maybe Leopold.)
As for the Isles, I hoped that they could get an actual warm body back for him, but whatever. They had to move him for something.
