    I mean that's just ridiculous. There's not many teams with top pairing quality dmen out there if Weber is an average #2.

    He isn't at top 20 dman in the league though. You have to factor in contracts. He's around 20-30

    He is still a great player. The issue is that he and Petry are our only top 4 dmen.

    He was going to have a typical Weber season of between 40-50 points and playing rock solid defense. Problem is he was never healthy and the team was never good enough to make his impact meaningful

    He was great.
    One of the few players on the team who played good at the start of the season

    When Weber played he was fine. His problem was he was injured his whole season.

    Our PP improved without him because it became less predictable. When he's manning the point we get tunnel vision and the goal is to pass it to Shea and have him blast it. It becomes easy to read. Cut off the passing lane or play Weber tight so he doesn't have time to shoot.

    What does his contract have to do with anything. He comes as advertised, and is still a top 10-15 dman in the league

    Weber and Price are two players we really don't need to agonize over. They are still elite and will revert to the mean and be just fine so long as they can stay healthy. This team has so many bigger fish to fry it's a joke that some posters keep coming back to these guys. They are practically the only people on the Habs roster who every other team in the league would be glad to have on their first pair and as their #1 goalie. The other 21 guys would attract either limited or in some cases zero interest from other clubs and the ones who did get attention would not be perceived as impact players but merely added depth.

    He played exactly like you'd expect Shea Weber to play

    Older, slower and injured. Non factor and in 2 years this contract will look awfully bad. Only a moron would have taken on this contract. Oh wait...

    If he can play well at 36, the contract won't be a problem. After that, the buyout is only something like 500k on the cap. So we'll just have to see what he plays like when he heals.

    Good, but not as good as Subban.

    Maybe he will heal like Souray once did but instead of getting a harder slapshot he will skate faster. ;)

    That was crazy. Breaks his wrist and comes back with a harder slap shot.

    I'd say the same as most posters, he's been good as advertised but within seconds the trade was announcend, we knew (well, most of us) that we lost the deal.

    Still can't believe MB was stupid enough to do it.

    Him and Price enjoying their millions and what they like doing the best, spending time in the outdoors already, while the real ATTITUDE is still playing hockey. Bergevin should have never traded for this guy.

    He'll continue to be a top pairing D man for the next few years.

    Not as well surrounded for sure.

    Put Subban in the Habs line up this year, and the results would had been marginally better, but no Playoffs.
