I've always thought Nashville plays it fairly aggressive on D. Not a lot of scoring forwards there and rely on the D to chip in offensively a bit more than other clubs. I don't think Suter's being protected in some ultra conservative trapping/defensive style like Martin was in Jersey and maybe Michalek under Tippet.

I also think Weber benefits just as much from Suter. Weber is the guy that will take a few runs at guys, Suter just seems to always be where he's supposed to be. Let's not sell Suter short. He didn't just become good playing with Weber. He was a top 10 pick in one of the great drafts ever in 2003 and was fantastic without Weber in the Olympics.
