Cue the insane 'ainec' posts...

Homerism aside, Weber is the better player right now. He is only 26, and he is consistently ranked among the top five defensemen in the game. Nik Lidstrom even said that he was pulling hard to have Weber on his All Star team just to have a chance to be on the same pairing as him. ****ing Lidstrom. It's close, but Weber

edit: isn't the argument that he was "on the ice" for the gold medal winning goal essentially the same as blaming a defenseman for taking a minus when he just stepped on the ice during a bad change that resulted in a goal? Doughty did jack **** on that goal...

(of course, to be fair, Weber was right in front of the net when Parise scored the game-tying goal)
