Martin already cut his bench (ref.: Maxwell and D'Agostini's TOI in the last 2-3 games) so, in the current context (injuries, the much needed Olympic break is within reach...), Weber on 4th would not create a problem.

And Weber sure has a booming shot. I like your proposal especially if Bergeron's injury is not serious.

That is one less thing for the opponent to key in on. We now have no real threat to complete Markov's cross ice passes. Basically, we will have to try and beat them down low with Markov roaming around or try to get him open for the shot.

You are right: it goes beyond his great PP stats. Habs' opponents were definitely paying close attention to Bergeron's booming shot and it was creating some space/opening lanes elsewhere.
