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

    You can be offended... It's still true, Weber had to rely on Mete, because he was too slow for the game.

    When Weber returned he didn't start off playing with Mete but did very well. Weird.

    Weber was not good defensively, that's my point. Yet almost nobody is talking about it... He was so bad, that we started to hear that he might be injured... And today we learned that he was fine. 34 years, two surgeries, slowing down, 7 more years. No problem here...

    Not offended at all, frankly I’m in awe of this take.

    You be you bud, and convince yourself that a guy that would have been top 2 in goals, top 15 in points is being carried by a guy that started in the AHL, has never scored, and has 20 points in 120 games.

    Seriously you are drowning in Weber hate. You are one step removed from the Gill is better the Weber guy.

    No need to respond, its clear we have a different understanding of hockey

    So he is too slow for the game in February but killing it before that?

    Weird.

    His effectiveness defensively was clearly below expectations...

    The injury rumor originated directly from that.

    If he wasn't injured, that's very concerning.

    Sheldon Souray put up lots of points too, no one would've considered him an anchor #1 Dman, as Weber was brought here to be (& what he replaced).

    Great if he keeps his offensive production up, but if he's as average defensively next year as he was this year, we've got problems.

    How do you explain the "he might be injured", that's why he's looking so bad, rumors ? Must be because he was too good...

    Weird, Indeed.

    Can you guys claiming he was ineffective defensively quantify you position? He played all the tough minutes and my eye test showed a guy that rarely got scored on. Was plus 15 and when he came back Mete was suddenly an NHL player and Price was a Vezina contender.

    So what am I missing guys?

    I hope he gets a good break this summer. He needs to be fresh this coming season.

    Nobody want to fight, it's only internet. I don't have a favorite d-man, but I like my D to be in the mold of Hedman, Giordano, Subban(not this season's version), Dougthy... Or to be godly offensively like Karlsson or Burns.

    Lol not throwing stones, are you following this thread? He comes in to say its quiet then claims Mete is carrying Weber. You are defending a guy that thinks Victor freakin Mete is carrying Weber. I’m pretty sure I know who his favourite player is.

    This is exactly what I was expecting. Emotional response, you have nothing hockey related to contribute.

    Well, I did add an edit that I missed half the conversation, then I just removed it all together.

    Honestly, you guys can just argue. I may as well just add Weber is far from my favorite also.

    I’m out as well. Fwiw he’s not my favourite either I just exist to push back on the hate. The trade unfortunately ruined these board, some have too much invested emotionally

    Mete was sent to the Ahl days after Weber cameback.. Mete was plus 17, with less points, that's your argument ?

    Again when Weber cameback, he looked pretty good and for some reason toward february, he started to look slow and was often behind the play and had to rely on Mete's speed to save his bacon.

    I’m a little worried about Shea’s foot speed given the injuries and just natural decline but I think fatigue played a bigger part with how he finished. I don’t think he’s as bad as his final month and a half would show. I’m hoping a proper training camp next season and some rest will fix what we saw, even if he’s not the same defensemen that his reputation would hype him up as.

    Shea was great for the majority of the year and that was without a real offseason. I'm happy he declined the team Canada invite and wants to workout all summer.
