Canucks: Where does Brandon Sutter fit next season?

The Vancouver Canucks general manager Jim Benning is facing his most challenging offseason to date (COVID-19 has taken an unknown toll on the future of NHL hockey) and he’ll likely have some difficult decisions to make in regards to how he wants the team’s head coach, Travis Green to deploy the roster next season. Brandon Sutter may be one of those hard choices.

The shutdown center, who at times has been referred to as “elite” by his coach, has spent the last five seasons in Vancouver, but over that course of time in a Canucks jersey, he never reached the full on-ice potential of what his annual earnings would suggest.
