Obviously Weber has struggled without Suter in the past, but I think he would be fine now that Blum can be put into that role. You have to remember than when Suter went down this past season his replacements were Bouillon and SOB. Two guys who are NOT top pairing defensemen, and Weber struggled to make up for their shortcomings while still covering his own assignments.

I think the guys are even, but with Blum showing his stuff last season and Josi getting ready to make his NHL debut I think Suter is the more expendable of the two. Trying to decide which of your two elite defensemen is the better player is a good problem to have though.
