Actually, Suter is two years younger than Kronwall.
Suter will definitely be the better defenceman. He's just like his uncle. Anyone who has any doubts about this question should merely pop in a tape of any Suter game from the 2003-04 WJC.
yea i ment the other way around, i ment suter is 2 years younger them him.
So just because Ryan is just like Gary, and Nik doesnt compare to anyone like that hes not gonna be as good if not better?
a lot of you really havent seen him play, much like i havent seen Suter play, but i mean i said before id say its a tie because i havent seen suter play and im high on kronwall. Yea ofcourse suter might be putting up some good stats and could be nashvilles 1-3 dman, but i mean would he be the number 1-3 on detroit, no. Kronwall in a few years could be a number 1-3 like suter will be. I think its pretty damn even.
Kronwall from TSN:
Assets Skates well and is usually in sound defensive position. Has a wealth of offensive potential. Hits anybody that moves.
Flaws Must prove capable of handling big power forwards in front of the net. His lack of size could lead to injury woes down the road.
Career potential Top four defenseman.
Suter from TSN
Assets Possesses an excellent all-around game. Can rack up points on the power play, mainly due to a heavy point shot. Loves to hit people.
Flaws Still needs to refine his work in the defensive zone. Must add more bulk to be better prepared to handle NHL power forwards.
Career potential No. 2 defenseman.
Kronwall will definitly be better then a top4, and suter is definitly looking good at 2, but all i all this isnt suter by a long shot like someone said
