People say he was a big part of both. He's also signed for next season, so he could be the RD on the 3rd pairing.

EDIT: Too late. Kassian posted the link while I was looking up the numbers.
There's that. Plus he's affordable. Plus if Monty is fine, I'd still trust Weaver as the #7 over Rivet/Butler/AHLer. And he's under contract next year so they'll have a semblance of a safety net if Monty walks. If you list defensive depth as a possible need, I think he fills it well.
