Weber is Norris caliber, tremendous physical game, intimidation, leadership, high offensive upside. Look at the numbers he puts up playing in NSH, one of the least offensively potent teams around and then imagine him with our newly developed forward depth and Richards on the point on the PP with him. He averages 15-20 goals and 40-55 points playing with the Preds. If he can potentially IMPROVE on those numbers, while playing Norris caliber defense for us and bringing the physical snarl to the back end that we've been looking for, I definitely would prefer to go after Weber over Parise. Not sure, however, why I just spent so much time arguing it when neither is a likely reality.
Yeah, that would be a difficult decision. Weber or Parise..........

Can't go wrong with either one.
