Suellentrop is a stay at home d-man, like Bundy, but possibly has a better outlet pass and will probably be a better skater.

You didn't mention why he reminds you of Chris Therien and now I'm curious.
I don't particularly see a Therien comparison myself. I will say, though, that Therien when he was young was a very good skater for such a big guy. He didn't become slow until the latter stages of his career.

Suellentrop has made good progress early this year. I don't know if he projects yet as an NHL starting defenseman but he's moving toward that direction.
