I'm pretty much done with Weber, but by the same token I don't see this team turning it around next season. There are enough extremely weak teams that we could contest for the final playoff spots, but really the future of the team is not ready to compete in the NHL or is young enough to still be in their prime in a couple of years. Strategically, giving Weber another year to try and show he belongs in this league may be a practical thing to do. Guy's not going to win you any hockey games, however.
