What are going to do? Wait 3 years for Diaz to *maybe* end up as good as Kaberle offensively? Let's give Kaberle what he needs to limit his errors and go with that.

Defensively Weber is not better than Kaberle and who knows if he will become a 50 points D man like Kaberle. Diaz would be a better choice than Kaberle from a cap perspective but (1) Montreal has no cap issue – especially if they find a way to unload Gomez and (2) with Emelin and Subban onboard (good but inexperienced D) and guys like Tinordi and Beaulieu knocking at the door (1-3 years), I wish for a more experienced D squad in 2012-13.

Icing Subban, Emelin and Diaz (good but inexperienced Ds) is asking for troubles (think of this team 3rd period woe) imo. If you add Weber to the mix (I usually agree with you Carey Price but 4 inexperienced Ds?)... it would be "2011-12 disastrous"!
