These signings demonstrates the value of the defensive center and why having good bottom 6 centers are important. Teams can try for budget options like this, but they rarely work out. This is why we paid more of a premium to get one of the best in Beagle and having another in Sutter is only more valuable (when healthy of course). Ideally you develop your own, but when you don't and you need to dip into free agency, you have to pay for quality.


Hopefully Sutter has a good season and he can become a commodity that will be valuable enough to get a decent return.


Sheahan has stuck around for the last little bit simply because teams against the cap are looking for this solution. Hopefully for him it works in Edmonton, but hopefully for us he doesn't so Sutter has that much more value.

If Larsson yielded Taylor Hall, wonder what Sutter could get... Deadmonton's 1st?  :ph34r:
