While I don't mean to suggest "YOU NEED WEBER" or anything like that. Saying he's a lesser version of Connolly is far from accurate.

Also, this western conference stuff. Weber played some his best games against Boston during the playoffs. In two series vs Boston he's got 4 points in 6 games and a plus rating so...3 of them are goals.
Great, then keep him. If "on pace" means anything then Giordano would have had 39 points. Weber couldn't keep a regular spot for a blueline that is average at best. Weber is extremely one dimensional and Giordano, Bouwmeester and Babchuk all were on pace for more points than him. I dislike Weber as a player. I don't think he's even an NHLer for most teams. Would you trade Eller for Babchuk? Because that's basically what you're asking us to do.
