Like I said, it's easy for us to sit around and call Suter the more solid defenseman. He likely is, but solid is a hard property to put a number on. There's a reason that everyone is salivating\offering Kings' ransoms for Weber over on the trade board, while people are writing Suter off as being a "a top 20 defenseman, but nowhere near top 10." WE know it's not true, but again, what stats does he have to back it up There's a reason that people are doing features on Weber at the Olympics, why he's getting named to all-star games. Big hits, lots of goals, A on the jersey = $$$. Quietly making good breakout passes and playing a shutdown role = not as easy to make that case. There's a million dollars a year difference now, and I think there will continue to be about that much.
