More innovative maybe, but technically, in terms of skill, I doubt there's anything in Sabbath's back catalogue that Page couldn't play, but I'm not sure the same could be said the other way around. If only cos of Iommi's finger accident.
I think also Page´s guitar skills are overrated. If you listen his solos for example Song Remains the same double, they´re just mess (yes, he was using heroine or cocaine quite much that time). He´s done great work in the first album for example in Dazed & Confused, he´s innovation to use a bow with guitar and also most of his acoustic work is great, but anyway all the way I like more Iommi´s guitar work although he may not been as skillfull.
