Plus, the 1st pick and Brian Dumoulin are just icing on top of the cake.
I agree. I'm not saying Sutter is better than Staal but I think he fits in better than Staal did. Jordan has the talent to be a top two center in this league even though his numbers are not great this year. Sutter is a perfect fit for the pens 3rd line. Great defensively and can score when needed to.
Don't get me wrong I loved J. Staal as a pen but IMO the only difference between him and Sutter is physical play. Staal is a big guy and used his body but when it comes down to being a shutdown center and being responsible on defense imo Sutter is the right guy
