Weber + Suter vs Chara + Karlsson?

The NA vs. World-thread got me thinking. Which pair of defensemen would you rather have

Shea Weber and Ryan Suter

or

Zdeno Chara and Erik Karlsson?

Weber + Suter is a much better fit IMO

Looks like a pretty unanimous opinion so far.

Suter and Weber was a great pairing, but easy choice to go with Chara and Karlsson.

That would just be an absolutely terrifying pairing to play against.

Weber-Suter is better defensively, but Karlsson's monster offense paired with Chara monster defense (which is better than either of Weber or Suter's) is just nuckin' futs. Plus, even though he's not of Suter, Chara, or Weber's caliber, Karlsson is underrated defensively. Chara is also not a slouch in any way offensively. Karlsson would improve his offensive numbers and Chara would help Karlsson defensively and correct his mishaps.

Easily Chara-Karlsson.

What Ottawa could have had over what Nashville did have... The only possible reason not to go that route is a potential conflict in chemistry b/w Chara and Karlsson, vs the know chemistry of Suter/Weber.

Chara-Weber vs. Karlsson-Suter would've been more interesting

Hard to say this. Would we be in a position to draft Karlsson with Chara on the 07-08 team?

I'm assuming you are saying Suter is the one that does not have an offensive game, which would be dead wrong. The last 3 seasons Suter has scored at a .53 PPG clip, while Chara is at a .58 PPG clip, and Weber at a .59 respectively. I wont argue against Karlsson. What Suter lacks is an elite shot from the point. He will never put up the goal totals that the other three will, but he is no slouch offensively.

It all depends on the situation. In the original thread it was a seven game series and since Suter and Weber know each other i'd take them.

For a full season or building a real team i'd take Chara and EK
