Weber is not the best puck mover. While very good defensively, he's not a dominate shut down defenseman like Progner. While Suter is a good puck mover, he doesn't have near the offensive abilities of say, Nick Lidstrom, or Scott Neidermayer for that matter. Still, they are one of the best pairs in the league, but Weber isn't Progner, and Suter isn't Lidstrom. They are a level below the truly elite. Thankfully, when you have 2 "level below" elite dmen together, it turns out pretty well.
Agree with this 100 percent. Both are Top end guys but I doubt either will be as dominate as guys like Pronger and Lidstrom were during their prime.
