Sutherby Signed

by Kristine

The Stars announced today that they have signed Brian Sutherby to a two-year contract extention worth a total of $1.625 million.

The news is bitter sweet as everyone agrees that this likely means Joel Lundqvist will be out of a job when he hits unrestricted  free agency this summer. My question is, does Sutherby bring more to the lineup than Lundqvist? As much as I like Lundy – and I do – I feel like the answer to that is “yes.” Somebody made the point that while Lundqvist looks good only with Eriksson and Richards this season, Sutherby is like “spackle” and fits in with almost anyone. To me, that’s what it comes down to. The more guys you have who can find chemistry easily, the more line combinations you have and the more depth you have.

The official release is here.
