NYI Fan Central Comments:
Isles have been fortunate to have Sutton stay this healthy for close to sixty games given his injury history but it's a huge loss because he was playing the best hockey of his career and in his most recent games was making sure to stay on the ice and not send a message with retaliation or over agressive penalties/ fights and was only getting better at blocking shots which has always been something he does very well.
Isles are going to have to make due with what they have or make a move to bring in a defender. Folks remember Drew Fata from last year.
Defense will have to be about chemistry the group shows, not names of the players at the positions.
