Yemelin proved reliable to me. Not amazing, but reliable. We can expect him to perform well and pick up his game without fearing he'd be a liability.

We sadly can't say as much for Weber. Awful camp. The point of playing with AHLers and Junior guys is to see if YOU can be the fixture, if YOU can make it happen to them. Emelin proved he could do his best with Nathan, while Weber proved he needed to have a fixture as a backup.

A fact that many people raised: this isn't a top 4 signing, which is why I don't think we have further bad development for Markov or Subban medium term. I think the organization just don't trust Weber to fill the position we hoped he'd fill right now, and we can't afford to wait for him because more young men are coming quickly. We need to make room for them, so trade Weber.

It's a depth signing made to accommodate a short/medium term need to replace a disappointing prospect. The end. Nothing to panic over.
