    At 35, Weber is really struggling right now. He's having a really hard time playing the minutes he is playing and is not an NHL top pairing D anymore.

    At least he's better than PK.

    Get him on the Tom Brady diet, it'll save him.

    Forget top pairing. If he was a no-name AHLer playing the same way he's playing now, I don't think he'd even get a regular roster spot on most teams.

    What happened? He seemed to be a beast as recently as last season and playoffs.

    Pens can offer Yannick Weber for cheap to see if he can fill the void

    Averaging 20 minutes a night with 17 points and plus six going against the top lines is still pretty damn good. He has always been a turn over machine and an ugly skater for his entire career. Most of his points have always come from his shot rather than his very average playmaking. Saying he is not an NHLer is mind boggling to me.

    Just overpaid with way too much term. Its the same Weber just older and a bit slower. A solid defenseman.

    5 goals 12 assists 17 points +6 playing 22:51 on average per game entering today's game. And for corsi fans 53.9 CF% while having a 51.0 dZS%

    Unless I am missing something I would say he isn't worse then a #2 quality defenseman

    Honestly, I wouldn't mind him on the Canucks next year with retention of course. He isn't what he use to be but can still be a capable top 4 guy with his minutes kept under 18 a game. He's just being asked to do too much at his age right now.

    same can be said for everyone from that 2003 draft class. Except for Fleury I guess. That shit was a long time ago.

    Weber this season is 35th in ice time by game, that not number #1 D ice time and the smallest amount since 2007-2008.

    He's not what he used to be, I think nobody is learning anything here.

    I still wouldn't want to trade him, he can still be very effective in the D-Zone, see last game vs Oilers and still has that bomb slap shot.

    Anyway, if you hadn't notice, Habs are trying to build the circa 2010 team Canada. Staal, Weber, Price, Perry.

    Is Duncan Keith available to play with Weber by any chance ?

    Today I learned Shea Weber is the same age as Alex Ovechkin. One month apart. I feel like Weber should be older.

    He’s still good at cross-checking guys and not getting called for it. :wg:

    Except no one actually said this? The OP claimed that he wasn't a top pairing defenseman, not he isn't an NHLer anymore....

    His skating isn’t just bad now, it’s flat out laughable. If you watch Habs games, pay attention to him in a foot race. He never had great speed, but he looks like he’s pulling a trailer now. He also gets beat almost everytime when trying to keep possession in the offensive zone. Teams are constantly getting there first and chipping it out past him. Not to mention his shot just looks so lacklustre most of the time now which was his biggest threat. He’s a number 4 defenseman in this league now. But as a Habs fan, we can’t be leaning on him the way we do. His minutes need to be reduced.
