I can't believe people are already calling for Suter's head.

I mean, he hasn't been the greatest defender ever or anything, but look at who he's gone from and where he is now.

He played under a very, very structured system for seven seasons. Seven full length seasons. With a constant Norris candidate in Shea Weber. And a Vezina-caliber goalie year after year in Pekka Rinne.

Now he's playing with either Spurgeon or Gilbert. Neither of which are even in the same solar system as Weber. Backstrom and Harding are nowhere close to Rinne, either. And the guy is still adjusting to a brand new system with absolutely nobody that he's played with before, aside from Parise, who he's had a grand total of, what, 20 games with before this season?

Give the dude some leeway. He's working his ass off. Just watch the game and you can tell.

Of course he could be playing better, but damn. Slow down on the witch hunts.
