But Henry is what he is and is never going to get better...but as a stay at home, physical defenceman i think we could do worse.
I agree with your comments. Weber missed six games with the Dogs when called up, two of which Bob was watching, to play spotted duty in one game with the Habs. If he and Carle are to bring their defensive games to the NHL level they need to play the big minutes every night in the AHL.
