Suter is better than Weber in the defensive end as far as positioning during the transition. Suter is not nearly as strong as Weber against the cycle, down low or in the corners Weber is better.

Offensively Suter is far better breaking the puck out of the zone and carrying the puck, Weber on the other hand, has a tremendous shot and can hold the puck in the zone much better. Both are tremedous skaters, especially for Weber's size.

So that's my comparison between Suter or Weber. Which one will do better without the other? Don't know but the Predators have someone with Josi that fits the mold of Suter to step in to Suter's place. I don't know as much about the Wilds' defensemen to say whether or not they have a big physical defenseman that can skate and shoot, in the mold of Weber.

As far as the poll, the way Suter lied makes me like him as much as I like Liarpold, so if for no other reason than that, I'm going against Suter.

Then Suter. Easily.

Lol. Those items aren't factored in the NORRIS voting...and Alex finished higher there with Colaiacovo as his partner.

Right now? Suter.

I like Pietrangelo going forward, though.

I don't know about cards, but, uh, I think these four-fives beat a full house. Hey banker, cash me out, yo.
