LTIR contracts get traded all the time.
why is that? If he knows something to be true, hes going to report on it no?
Like Luongo did.
Weber was probably thinking, "I'm gonna fight this, I'm gonna rehab and be back!" And then he saw Kypreos' tweet and gave up.
I dunno, I think the legend of Man Mountain Shea Weber will be enough with the Olumpics + four all star selections. Mats Sundin never really won any hardware, two all star team selections and the 1 Olympic gold, and I'd call them a similar calibre of player.
Lidstrom/Karlsson will be the excuse for never winning a Norris, and mediocre Preds/Habs teams will excuse him from no cup wins because he's already a pre-ordained WINNER with the Olympic stuff.
Yeah, there is lots of clickbait and sensationalism all over the internet, for sure. Lots of people trying to profit off the misfortune of others too. Doesn't mean it's a good look for him.
start with a 2020 unprotected first
That really is awful news for Weber. Such a great player, despite my dislike for his current jersey. This just feels way too early for a player of his caliber, but long-term health should be his priority. Maybe shutting it down in 2020 could lead to a return in 2021?
lol I heard Gary's voice saying that when I saw this.
This is a good memage
That ain't gonna happen. No way Molson foots the bill for Weber to sit on LTIR for 6 years. He will make Bergevin trade that contract away.
you undervalue how strong is the emotional bound between Molson and Bergevin.
Has Molson started joining Bergy in the gym to be the third Buff Brother?
The three of them in press conferences in those tight red golf shirts looking yuge
I'm open to being corrected, but didn't Weber miss out on the Norris twice by razor thin margins?
I'm definitely not saying he's a lock, but I think the comparison to Spezza/ Carter might be selling him short.
I looked it up. Weber lost the 2010/11 Norris to Lidstrom 736 votes to 727 votes (3rd place was Chara with 688 votes). And Weber lost the 2011/12 Norris to Karlsson 1069 votes to 1057 votes (3rd place was Chara again, with 950 votes). That is a tight margin. Feels a lot like the Luongo vs. Brodeur thing.
why is a thread about Weber being injured turning into a Molson/Bergevin bash fest
I'm just asking? I actually was paying them a compliment.
Nah, Molson just grabs quick glances at the bi's and glutes when he can
The two smallest margin in Norris history not to mention his best season he didn't even get nominated.
I'd say his chances at the Hall are pretty high.
Dude, maybe I'm misunderstanding, but this seems in very bad taste.
Never say never. Guy Carbonneau got in.
so much for that career ending injury
Wish him all the best and a speedy recovery.
