Anyone think this has do with the East being an absolute terror to play in if you're a defenseman? You certainly don't have to face Crosby, Malkin, Ovechkin, Giroux, or Stamkos in the West.
Some people just don't like the attention. Suter seems like a laid back person, concerned about his family and keeping them out of the spotlight.
Props to Nemesis for the signature and avatar.
