Rate Weber's first season as captain (again).

Just because they make a lot of money doesn't mean they're not human. Everyone has good days and bad. Maybe the player had an argument with their wife. Maybe the kids are very sick. A mother dies. Or, as we've seen, a baby is born and a better performance occurs.
I'm not saying they shouldn't work hard for their money but they are human and subject to the same stresses and changes outside the rink as everyone else is.
