Simple question for those old enough to remember Lowe during his playing days.
A true #1 defenseman who is top-15 in the league but if you are obsessed with point totals you might not realize it.
He was a larger Trevor Daly although the above 2 guys are decent comps.
Stall IMO has a chance to be a better player than Lowe but lets see him get healthy 1st.
I would say Lowe was tougher and better defensively so a shutdown guy, while Daley is a much better skater and not at all a shutdown guy. Not sure they compare.
chris pronger minus the offense.
Luke Schenn, great defensively not so much offensively.
Luke Schenn was the very first name that I thought of when I read the thread title. Can be a rock defensively and is tough as nails but will not be setting any scoring records.
Ladislav Smid's play this season is very much like Lowe's play during his prime.
The general opinion of players were that you didn't want to piss off Kevin Lowe. He could be very mean and nasty just ask Carey Wilson.
Marc Staal was the first name to come to mind as well. Staal's a bit bigger though.
Offensively they are a wash. Lowe was playing in the 1980s with Gretzky and Messier on his team and still never hit higher than 46 points. I see Staal that way
Separate names with a comma.
