He kept the Ducks in the series knowing they were automatic in their PP and still gave them opportunity after opportunity. His lack of discipline was not a good fit for a team that prides itself on mental toughness. He wasn't and still isn't a Preds-type player. We were warned that he took bad penalties in Vancouver. He made poor decisions in Nashville. And I'll bet he is still making dumb decisions for the Avs.

He's leading the Avs in PIMs at 54. Compared to Tootoo (45), McGratten (39), both fighters and over twice as many as Weber (24), SOB is not what the Preds need.
We'll just have to agree to disagree then. I loved him and his crease clearing abilities.
