I don't really care much about Weber's 5+ rating over an extremely small sample size of 10 games. He's just terrible defensively and I don't see what he brings offensively except his big shot.
Emelin has proven to be physical and has way better defensive skills. He's as mobile as Weber is. I guess he's just a little out of shape and the coaching staff is probably sitting him out while he gains NHL form in the gym. I will admit that his lack of endurance is visible on the ice, but in terms of upside, we need a guy exactly like what Emelin can be. We have many Webers, and all are better than him.
