Suter, Weber or Klein

Which defenseman is most NHL ready. All signs woudl point to Suter, but not once you really look it all up. I think Weber and possibly Klein coudl make it thsi season if we did not have so much depth on defense.
Are Klein and Weber both signed? I know Suter is.

yes, weber and klein are both signed to rookie deals, and you're wrong ... go check the AHL voting last year as to who was the best and who finished second in Defenseman of the year voting

1st - Kronwall (Detroit)
2nd - Suter (Nashville)

Suter is very ready to play in the NHL right now

Suter will make the team this year...but I expect big things from Klein and Weber in the AHL this year.

Ok, but how am I wrong??
I never said he was the BEST in juniors. Where did that come from?? I guess your wrong then.
But that is still good to know the people feel he is the second best.

So no chance of even Weber making it this year? I know he is more advanced than Klein is.

weber could make it, but I HIGHLY doubt it. right now here are the defensemen ahead of him:

timonen
eaton
hamhuis
markov
zidlicky
suter

if there are some injuries (god forbid) this season he might see some call-ups.

Wow, Suter finished ahead of Hamhuis? That's shocking Hamhuis put up great numbers and played solid defense.

Weber has a higher upside than Klein...but I don't think he's better right NOW. Klein, after sliding a little early..had a great year in Milwaukee. Poile said he's gotten stronger and bigger, and is spending al ot of time bulking up this summer. He was awesome in the playoffs at both ends of the ice. To this point...Weber has only played against kids...so both Suter and Klein have a leg up on him.

I see Weber having as much upside as potentially a Derian Hatcher. I see Klein being a Sydor/Foote. Will Weber be in Milwaukee this season?

A year in the AHL would be best for Shea, he could come back to junior this year but it would be best for Shea to move on and be in Milwaukee this season.

Sounds good, maybe some call-ups will be good for him as well, a little NHL taste

Klein maybe, but Weber? We havn't even seen him in Milw. yet and looking forward to it also. Another strong d-corps and still have the speed up front, hopefully Finley can reduce a few mental miscues and would like to see the new goalie Rinne too.

Suter and Hammer are great defensemen, but I think Suter being from Madison, playing for UW, and playing for the Ads created a large buzz with the Wisky fans, and the AHL in general judging by the vote. Don't get me wrong both are great, I just think Suter won the popularity vote. Hamhuis is kinda consided a Nashville guy anyway.

By the way, down on the farm the Ads have their long awaited new website operational. Check it out, it is a bit of a wait with dial-up. Essentially the same stuff, but in a different format, and they utilize modern internet technology!!!

First game is at Grand Rapids (Detroit) and is a rather big rivalry, not quite like the one with the Wolves, but it is always nice to take it to the Wings farmhands. After all they are/will be Wings.

Yes, I do have the ego to quote myself. Just disregard my analytical rambling with the following quotes.
