Come on man. You cannot even compare amount of resources that have been spent on Weber compared to Diaz. Weber has been brought along by this organization, Diaz was nothing but a free agent signing. Weber is infinitely more valued by the organization at this point.
Diaz has been getting big minutes since the very first game whereas Weber is getting big minutes now as a result of Campoli/Spacek going down (and thus him shifting back to D) *and* because he's playing well.
This is flat out wrong.
Diaz has gotten 20 minutes or more of TOI twice this season, Weber has had 20 or more minutes of TOI
The only time Weber got less than 17 minutes was in game 1.
And, just to clarify, just because Weber gets shifted to forward once in a while does not mean he is negatively viewed by the coaching staff. But rather, is the most fit to go to forward because he is effective there, and has produced there in the past.
