The grade was based on the past season and then the offseason moves to the airing of the broadcase. Sutter played his first season with the Pens so the time to evaluate the quality of the move was correct.
These guys do their homework. They talked of Ray's patience with Martin and the incredible season he gave in return but mentioned that unless the cap goes up a lot, Ray seriously gambled away the future of the franchise on 3 players. It was a solid objective review IMO.
You still can't judge that trade yet. It's all about pouliot. Sutter didn't do a good enough job this year to justify the trade all on his own.
Well you can judge it, I guess. he got a better return than one could hope for, but not because of anything Sutter did.
