Well, offensive IQ is a trick question. Suter, clearly to me, has it in getting the puck out of the zone, through neutral ice and into the attack zone. He is hugely better-- watch Weber give him the puck every single freakin' time. And that is "offensive IQ" in my mind. He then can set guys up better than Weber. Weber however is far better at knowing when and where and how to jump into the play, how to get open and how to place shots. That, too, is "offensive IQ". Maybe it deserves two categories to be fair.

I've never seen a better "pairing" than these two ever. On any team. In the last 15 years at least.

Unless Suter goes to hang with Chara or Weber goes to hang with Lidstrom, we won't see a better pair if one of them leaves. Ryan Ellis may someday prove to be an excellent compliment to Weber here... nobody here can pair with Suter to match Weber if Weber leaves.
