We just lose the luxury of having infinity dmen in the system - which, again, is a luxury. Don't get me wrong, from an asset management POV, that trade was a stunning success, but it didn't really address any specific need - aside from getting a good not great 3rd line center.

Looking at their depth chart, he's not particularly replaceable with an internal option. Also, you're not going to get a player with his positive attributes, on the open market and at a cheaper price.

shmenguin wrote:Stoll makes 3.25. Chris Kelly makes 3. Both of those were UFA re-ups, right? As an RFA, Sutter should get 2.75 or so. If he gets any more than 3, I'd call it a bad deal (relatively speaking of course).

Really it doesnt matter where they were playing. My point stands.
