TheHockeyNerds Posted July 29, 2015 Share Posted July 29, 2015 As we all know, Vancouver has acquired Brandon Sutter. Personally i really like the deal because i think Sutter is a significant upgrade on Bonino. Jim Benning has been on record saying that Brandon Sutter is a foundational player. I personally agree with him and here is why: Brandon Sutter is only 26 years old, just entering his prime. He is young enough to still have good years ahead of him when the next generation of canuck players come to fruition and contend. Sutter is a foundational player IMO because all Stanley cup champions have that 2/3 shutdown player who can win key face-offs in the playoffs, shut down top players and score at some important moments during your cup run. Basically all Elite teams have great players up and down the line up and Brandon Sutter can be that player once other centres like Horvat, McCann and cassels become good NHL players. What do you guys think? Thanks for reading everyone. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
