    Webs being called Dad by his Teammates. Sure, this comical Nickname justifies the Commitment of the 1909players around him and his comeback effects.

    Player Discussion - Shea Weber Part II

    MOD Warning: This has been discussed before. Subban talk is allowed in the Out Of Town Thread ONLY. This thread is for discussion of Weber's play and his contributions to the Montreal Canadiens (and not the Nashville Predators, which should also be in the OTT).

    It's funny, Weber never has to be a scapegoat for a crap season.

    Goals, stats, blablabla. He was shifted so easily in the last game. My main concern is that he is getting older and we only made the playoffs once since he got here. Who knows if we'll make the playoffs next year. How long will his body hold up? Is Petry going to be our next #1? lul

    We had a defenseman once upon a time that was scrutinized for a turnover in a meaningless regular season game but man mountain the legend with his menacing stare, he is a true Montreal Canadien.

    This thread is quiet...

    What is the new excuse, now that we know he was not injured ?

    |You mean the guy who was +15 playing the hardest minutes on the team and leading our D in goals despite only playing 58 games and missing training camp?

    His arrival was based on off-rink aspects. His shutdown style, it's what he got. No more than that. He's not a savior. That some persons wanted to persuade us it was the case. But just a part of the collective. I'm not knocking him down. Certainly not. I mean that's his style since he's playing hockey. We can't change him today.

    The same guy who had to rely on Mete, because he was not able to follow the pace anymore... He had good offensive stats, but was not good defensively.

    He just came off major knee and foot surgery and a year off. God forbid he has a dip in his game a couple months after return.

    That's the problem. He's almost 34 years old, had two surgeries... Do you expect him to be good like before ? Thanks god, he's only signed for the next 7 years...

    So you would agree that recovering from injury is not an excuse for crap play and is an indication of decline?

    Kind of like we saw with carey price.....

    Holy ****, you actually believe that Mete was carrying Weber. Just want to say this is amazing. Honestly speechless.

    He's signed for 7 years but I doubt he'll stay that long. Final 3 years at 1m/year. I very much doubt he doesn't retire in 2023.

    If you are recovering from an injury, you should not play... He's not young anymore. He may be done as a №1 D.

    Full season he would have been top 15 dmen scoring, top 2 in goals. Playing with a 20 yo that started in the AHL.

    This Weber hate is embarrassing, especially when you consider the play of other guys that could be compared to him. Ya he got beat a few times wide, do any of you guys follow hockey? Watched any preds games? They have 3 dmen getting walked every game.

    Not following Frank! I never thought Weber was injured, I saw a guy basically carry a d core and break down a bit late. He got beat, but thats only interesting cause he rarely gets beat.

    I mean watch Doughty play 82 games, he will get walked in ten of them. This is how the game unfolds.
