Brown, it is not nearly as clear as you seem to indicate. There are aspects of each player's game that are superior to the other. They are really not cut from the same cloth, so it is hard to make a head-to-head comparison of them.

Suter is much better carrying the puck, better skater, has a better wrist shot (or is smarter about using, perhaps). Really knows how to neutralize a guy on the rush with superior positioning and strength.

Weber delivers more punishing hits, has a better slap shot, maybe a little flashier. Both are very effective in their own way, but I don't think one is light years better than the other.

And to say that Suter will never get an award in his career, well, you must be pretty clairvoyant to be able to make that call.
