Finally, the Isles have signed a D man. Three years, 9 million. Not a bad signing. At three million per year, Garth may be able to afford one more decent player under the cap. Markov maybe? Eklund seems to think so.
Sutton brings tenacity and toughness to the Isles' back line. He doesn't score much, but will keep the opponent honest and protect Ricky. He uses his body and blocks lots of shots.
