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

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.

and while we're talking about the new additions, Semin is just flat out amazing.
