It's a bit disingenuous to hold up that season as the statistical proof he's "way" better. That was by far the best season he had in his 20s. Only twice in a Devils uniform did he exceed 50 points and only twice more did he exceed 40. It wasn't until the incredibly high scoring seasons right after the lockout that he was ever 'way' better.

And your point about Weber is a non-sequitur. Very little of Weber's game suggests he'd boost Suter's goal totals, especially at even strength.
