I don't think you make a very strong point comparing Weber to Streit. Streit liked to play defense better but he was very effective that year and one of the reasons this powerplay was one of the best. He just prefered playing as a defensemen.
Weber is probably one of the least important members of this team at the moment. He is not one of our top6 defensemen and he is erratic powerplay. He's lucky Markov isn't playing, that Subban has a down year offensively and that Campoli isn't as good as previously anticipated.
Speaking of Markov I'm not worried about his cap hit due to ways of getting out of his contract if he can't play again. I'm worried for the tank more than anything if he comes back this year
I look at Selanne not playing during the lockout and hope Markov benefits from the Sabbatical year effect in the same way.
