I've tried to keep an eye on Ryan Suter for a few seasons. Had the oportunity to watch him for a season at Madison (UW) and the following year with the MilAds. While his passing seemed to improve during those two seasons his offensive role diminished a bit in the pros. I don't know where I'd put him, I did not see him play too many times this season (I don't have Center Ice and the Preds don't get much play in WI), he's pretty good, as far as d-men are concerned, at carrying the puck, but has a tendency to make bad decisions with it, particularily in the defensive zone. While those turnovers weren't as much a concern in college as it was in Milwaukee, he did improve in that. He can also play somewhat of a physical game and is an above average skater, but as I said, I haven't seen much of him this past year to compare him to those two developmental seasons prior.
