Having seen every NHL game played by both players, I can say that Suter, while better at some aspects of the game, is not the better of the two. Weber isn't necessarily light-years ahead of Suter or anything, but the idea that Suter is better than Weber stemmed from fans watching each play without the other.
When Weber went down to injury for a prolonged period of time (2007-2008/2009-2010) Suter got to play with Hamhuis.
When Suter went down to injury for a prolonged period of time (2010-2011) Weber got to play with Francis Bouillon.
It isn't hard to figure out which pairing looked better on the ice.
