That's probably the basis for all the Thelen>>>Suter talk. No reason to shoot the messenger, people!
My apologies if my previous post came off that way, that wasn't my intent. However, I very much disagree with the assetment that Suter is a "purely offensive defenseman" because he is so much more than that. If you want an example of the type of player that you (or rather whoever is providing you the info) just described that recently came out of the NCAA and who is in an NHL system now, look at Thomas Pock. Pock is a great example of a purely offensive defenseman.
