Hey come on now, it's not like Shea is smilling after a loss (does he ever smile?) or playing cards on the team flight after a loss. He's Bergevin's kind of winner.
He’s 36. In the old NHL after 34 you retired. Lol
if only we could be that lucky... Weber retiring this summer, freeing up that cap space at a time where some owners want to unload salary and the UFA market for dmen is decent... what a stroke of luck that would be.
Great game so far from the Cap
He looks like he’s finding his mojo again.
Awesome game by the Mountain Man!
Back to back excellent games
disastrous ending for the captain, but at least we still out with a win.
We need to start putting different D combinations to end games.
The Man Mountain brought his stare of death with him yesterday.
Edmonton had no chance

Is this satire or serious?
Tough shift early in the game but was stellar afterwards. Need more of these games.
I hate his style of play. Worst D on the team and worst player on the PP
I remember watching old Habs captains when things went bad. They played hard. They set the f***ing tone. They scored, they fought, they laid down in front of shots that were going to hurt, they hit, they did everything and anything they could do to win. They had PRIDE. I don’t see that fire from Weber. I saw it from Gainey. I saw it from Carbo, I saw it from Saku. I never saw it with Patio-ready, and when we need it the most, I don’t see it from Weber.
Say what you want about PK, and many have and will, but when it mattered, he picked up his game (and his team) and made a difference.
Why is he no longer slap-shotting? There’s many times he has the time to get it off and fires off a mid-speed wrister.
he still is , he's missing 90% of the time the net.
I like the title @MarkovsKnee
He can't move laterally so he's useless.
Why is this guy immune from scrutiny by the media? It is annoying because any other captain or player (unless you're french) gets cut up by the media. If anyone deserves to be cut down it's this loser. Worst captain in Habs history next to patio ready.
Because MB and his team control the media, they probably get to see what gets written before it ever gets to the fans. Weber was his big trade for Subban, Captain Canada and it made him gave him credibility as a GM to have landed such a player so he is off-limits when it comes to scrutiny.
If we were still in the clutch and grab era Weber would still be considered good but because of the NHL's transition to a speed game, he is often overmatched. He is still good positionally but needs a fast skating puck mover as his D partner. He is now a Marc Methot with a prime Eric Karlsson type of player.
Weber's game has always had a ceiling. Just that when your partner is Ryan Suter--who only has faltered this year--and Roman Josi, you can turn being a hybrid of Gorges and Souray in a bigger frame into something supremely overrated. Andrei Markov was 50 times the dman Weber was and is. OMG, some slappers on Olympic ice. That's what we need in an 82 game season and playoffs.
This guy has never..........ever impressed me in a hab uniform.........big hitter . intimidating my ass.......lemme know one......one dominating hit he's laid as a hab.......... he's a fricken........phony!!
Markov has to be one of most underrated players of the last 3 decades, the total opposite of Subban and Weber.
I think Subban's rating was "at par". He was Mr. Playoffs, whereas Markov wasn't. Plus, having to play with Frankie B....requires a lot of skill to compensate.
