I'd also take Weber's physical style of play over the often mindless and penalty ridden physical play of O'Brien...
I wasn't comparing the two players I think SOB was a good influence on Weber. I think you made my point for me is that Weber wasn't the one that was being targeted and they concetrated on SOB That's all I said. Where was it that Weber was battling injuries and you have your links right? and he wasn't this year and what player doesn't battle with injuries during playoffs I'm sure it curtailed his overall effectivenes. But this year Weber was at a superstar level in the playoffs. When Weber as you say was hurt Hamhuis was being toyed with by Toews in front of the net and no one else was doing anything but being pushed around by the Hawks forwards. I never said that Weber wasn't a physical player that is why he is one of the coveted defenseman in all of hockey and I'm a huge Weber fan and watching intensly to see how it all turns out.If you have all this inside information on the Preds as you say you do was Sk hurt during the playoffs and I'm sure you do and wouldn't expect anything less from you.
