The only problem I have with a D-core of: Markov-Gorges, Gill-Subban, and Spacek - Weber is a general lack of toughness. Otherwise that is a a strong group. We have an elite pair of offensive d-man in Markov/Subban. A fine pair of defensive D-man in Gill/Gorges, and some good depth players in Spacek/Weber. I would love to add a player with size and toughness to our D-core.
As for Hamrlik, he was good for us, but it was time for him to move on.
Not sure about Weber. The times he played top 4 pairing, he was WITH Hamr, and he got most of his low GAA against weaker opposition. It's much easier to get lower GAA against weaker oppositions and lower minutes. He will definitely get there though, not sure it's this season. Look at Picard's numbers. It's pretty typical for bottom pairing Ds to have low GAA.
