Jordan Staal (Carolina Hurricanes) vs. Brandon Sutter (Pittsburgh Penguins)

7 posts in this topic

I wanted to revisit this trade for a bit.

Jordan Staal is currently centering the second line of the Carolina Hurricanes with Jeff Skinner and Zac Dalpe flanking him...

Brandon Sutter is currently centering the third line of the Pittsburgh Penguins with Matt Cooke and Eric Tangradi as his linemates.

You can compare stats and Jordan Staal heavily wins that category (Staal: 5 assists), (Sutter: 1 assist). However the better comparison is the overall production of the line an the +/-. Currently Sutter's +/- is at 0 and Staal's is at -2.

However the production of the line's tells the true story. The second line of the Carolina Hurricanes has accounted for five goals as where the third line of the Pittsburgh Penguins has accounted for a big fat 0 goals. Now after all the Sutter line doesn't have the talent that the Staal line has. However, even the line of Jussi Jokinen, Patrick Dwyer, and Drayson Bowman has even accounted for a goal.

With that said, the Carolina Hurricanes have currently received the better end of the bargain. We will eventually revisit this thread, especially when Dumoulin finally makes the jump.

Jordan is absolutely destroying him in the assist column, but a lot of that is thanks to Skinner.

Boychuk still hasn't recorded a point with Pittsburgh.

J Staal is playing well, and is frickin huge! I expect him to only get better as he acclimates to the team. He and Sutter are both great players, I'd be happy with either. Good to see Staal ramping up. I'm looking for good things from him.

    • Is this dude a real life person or an alt of @GOOGLE JIM BOB COOTER that is a living joke exemplifying the white culture thread? 
    • lol no one takes him seriously. He gets a courage award for bringing his hand-me-down  dad-politics into ttb while still asking to himself, "what does ttb mean again?"
    • I'm extremely pumped by this addition. It has to be the biggest addition since the team came back to Charlotte. I was too young to follow the original talented Hornets (Im sad), so I'm not going back that far. People and fans can say what they want about D12, but the man still have a lot left in his tank. And, Im tired of hearing how he doesnt fit in today's game anymore. There are only a handfull of big men today that I can really say, can shoot the ball: Davis, Towns, Embiid, Cousins and Aldridge.  Howard can still dominate! That's all that matters. The only neg I will give Howard is that I do see a lack of desire/effort to play at times. But, I believe MJ can help motivate him back to being a dominant big man again for next two years here.  Dwight Howard averaged a double-double last season: 13.5 ppg, 12.7 rpg, 1.2 bpg, and 1.4 apg.  D12 had "53", I said FIFTY-THREE double doubles last season. He had six games where he averaged 20 rebounds or more.  Guess who was the last Bobcats/Hornets era to even come close to that number.....Emeka Okafor in 2004 as a rookie with 47 double doubles (35.6 MPG). Then Big Al had 42 in 2013 (35.0 MPG). Howard did that while averaging 29.7 min per game. If you count out his 2014 season where he only played in 41 games, last season was the LEAST amount of minutes played per game in Howard's career.  Only three guys (Towns, Whiteside and Gobert) averaged more double doubles than Howard in 2016. And only four other guys ( Whiteside, Drummond, DJordan and Gobert) averaged more RPG than Howard last season. Other than Towns, none of those guys mentioned above can really shoot the ball any better than Howard. But, teams still want them on their teams for big contracts.    D12 will be a beast this upcoming season!
