wonder how it would have turned out.

....... before this goes further the creator of the manga has stated she was meant to be throughout the series from the beginning. And despite filler the anime follows the manga. So this fact is more than a little b.s. Sorry to be that guy. So as penance here is a real fact for you: in the original one shot of the manga before it was serialised in Shonen Jump Naruto did not have a demon fox sealed in him, he WAS a demon fox with the ability to turn himself into a human form.
I mean I don't see why they didn't do it, they probably clearly had the thought in mind that she was completely useless to Team 7. The only capable thing she could've done would be healing, but someone else such as Hinata or Ino could've easily token over.
@shanie0125 story wise it made sense to keep her alive, Naruto has a very strong theme of the past repeating itself. In fact the entire series is about trying to break that cycle. Constantly throughout the series there are situations and characters that mirror what had happened in the story's past. Sakura was a part of that reoccurring theme as she is the successor (in spirit) to Konan, Rin and Tsunade and is a key part of the allusion to the old Japanese saying when talking of the relationships and balances of power using the snake, frog, and slug as a metaphor.
@literateprimate if you talk about a cycle repeating having one less link in the chain wouldn't make it work...
@literateprimate that's really bad ass actually.
