It's not nothing. But yes, Weber's shooting ability is the main reason those goals happened. People are giving Suter just as much credit ("you don't get goals without assits") but it's not an evenly weighted thing in this case.

Weber will keep scoring goals as long as he's paired with a decent puck moving defenseman. I have little doubt. If we're lucky enough and he's paired with someone who has a good shot, I expect his goals to go up even more, because teams can't solely hone in Weber knowing that Suter doesn't have a good shot. And if we have more threats on offense (like Radulov), even more space for Weber...
