Luke is a good defensive d-man and I wouldn't call him underrated because this has been known for a number of years. In Toronto Wilson's system really threw him outta the frying pan and into the fire as a young player. People were calling him Adam Foote right out of the draft. Playing in Toronto he faced alot of pressure and he played well considering it.

He needs some help though I find because he does not have great footspeed, and he sometimes gets carried away and gets himself out of position in the D-Zone when I watched him through the years. Timmonen's skating and awareness really help him and Timmo is by far the best defenseman Schenn has ever been paired with in his career, so don't forget to give his partner some love.
