I don't know how good you think Suter is (yes we know he's good), or anything at all about Luke Schenn, but from your comments, I very much doubt the latter.

When Luke Schenn was drafted, Bob Mackenzie said he was the best Defensive Defenceman prospect he'd seen in ten years. There's a reason Schenn was taken 5th overall, two spots higher than Suter. Does that mean Luke is going to be the same type of player as Suter? No. (the Adam Foote comparison's probably the best). Does that mean he'll be as good as Suter? No again.

Now at only 21 yearsold, does he have the potential, given his pedigree to be as good or better than Suter? Absolutely. So does any prospect.
