But that's always a difficult thing to assess. I mean, Jeff Beukeboom helped make Brian Leetch into a HOF defenseman. They were the perfect tandem. Brian Rafalski was fantastic next to Nicklas Lidstrom, but when Brad Stuart was paired with Lidstrom the following year, Lidstrom had an even better offensive season. Then, with Ian White, he went back to his normal two-way self.
I agree that Ryan Suter has helped Shea Weber become the most dominant defenseman in the NHL today. But the game-changer of the two is Weber.
And yes, I do have a few concerns that Ryan Suter is a better, more expensive Paul Martin. After watching our defense completely unravel, how can we not be concerned?
