i, like most people, was definitely impressed with phaneuf and suter...and less impressed with coburn, but that's how i've felt since the draft. i'm going to disagree with everyone a bit, though...

now:
1.phaneuf
2. suter
3. coburn

FUTURE:
1. suter
2. phaneuf
3. coburn

i think the scott stevens comparison for phaneuf is perfect, but i'm not sure the gary suter comparison is as good for ryan suter. i'm not sure exactly WHO i'd compare ryan to, but i think stylistically lidstrom is closer than gary suter. it's just good to know that a lot of teams that haven't been all that great in years past have such bright futures. i think calgary and nashville are, in about 3-4 years time, going to have the most feared bluelines in the league.
