WOW!!! I guess that he must really have another 3-4 gears that he uses when he wasn't in the this past years WJC's!!! I saw little of Suter in the mold of Chelios. If he has 1/2 the heart that Chris does, then I guess I can see why you are all touting him so highly. I still wonder if he can hold his own against much bigger forwards, I guess time will tell!!!
Suter is 6'1, 210...i think he'll be fine. his style all along has been compared to chelios...nice offense, nice physical game, rock solid defensively...and he was twice captain of the US WJC team, which proves he's go the leadership, too. I'm not saying he'll be as GOOD as chelios was, but he'll be a similar player.
I can agree with that. It's incredible what being paired with Jeff Likens did to Suter's reputation around here. Ever since the WJC, Suter has went from some slam-dunk prospect to a "safe, should be decent" kind of guy, which is ridiculous, considering he managed to make the all-WJC team, lead the tournament in defensive points...and that's not even taking into account how good he was in the AHL this year. But whatever. I wouldn't be surprised to see Suter crack the Preds' lineup after the lockout, depending on what happens...and I'm not worried about him proving his mettle.
Yeah, I can't believe how much Suter's stock dropped in some HF posters eyes after the WJC's While I like Weber a lot( he represents what Nashville sorely lacks on the blue-line), he is not in the same class as Suter.
