Thanks.

Just a matter of time before he signs a contract (unless I read that completely wrong).

good article, he wants to work hard to become a Mark Streit :shakehead

good to have some news on him.

"Vous êtes souvent comparé à Mark Streit par la presse canadienne. Que vous inspire cette comparaison?

Elle me fait forcément plaisir, car Mark est un modèle pour moi. Il a réussi à faire son chemin en NHL et peut aujourd’hui être considéré comme l'un des meilleurs défenseurs de la ligue."

I don't know, but the fact that he sees Streit as one of the best defensemen in the league is scary... :D

Nice article. Didn't know that Jacquemet had gone back home. I was impressed by his play with Kootenay. Had some great shifts with Maxwell, nice chemistry, wished we would have offered him a try but oh well....

Can't wait to hear about Weber's signing.

best offensive defenseman, wich he is also, but the difference is that streit was 28 when we drafted him, Weber is 19 now.. he can learn and will most likely become a better 2 way player then Marky Streit

I'd love to have another Mark on this team. We treat him good and he won't flee to NY.

Just what the Habs will need...another small skilled forward

:sarcasm:

101 MPH slapshot!!!!!!!!!!!! He's going to be better then Mark Streit!

hototogisu 08-08-2008 12:38 PM

Nationality aside, he really did remind me of Mark Streit when I watched him play.

I hope he can learn how to play defence, unlike Streit who sucked so bad at it.

"Sucked so bad"? Give me a break.

He couldn't keep a spot amongst the habs 7 dmen lineup. That's a pretty objective judgement of what the habs' coaching staff thought of his ability to play D (he sucked).

He played about half the year on defense. He never "lost" his job on the blueline, so to speak.

He was better as a forward with PP time on the point, I agree. But to try and paint him as some kind of Aki Berg-esque doofus on defense is just plain wrong IMO. He was a competent defenseman, for the most part.

Turboflex* 08-08-2008 02:23 PM

Yeah but he wanted to play defence all year. He did in the first half of the year, and didn't in the 2nd half. I don't see how anyone can paint that as anything but a demotion.
