Weber still struggles with consistency especially in his own zone. I'd like to see him get his big shot on net on a more consistent basis. Without that, his biggest asset is a waste.

I look at weber as a 3rd pairing guy and 2nd unit PP guy. I think Diaz has the ability to become a 2nd pairing guy and a 1st unit PP guy
Why do you say these things regarding upside? Perhaps because Diaz is new and shiny? Weber is younger and leagues ahead of where Diaz was at the same age. I'd even give Weber the edge over Diaz now offensively and defensively. I'll go ahead and make the bold statement that Weber could be as good as Subban is right now.
