I was merely correcting his incorrect statement.
He got 8 of his 18 points on the powerplay (he got plenty of PP time as well to get that). 10 ES points is what you can expect from a 4th liner I would guess but he had ice time per game similar to Moen who was more productive. 15minutes per game is not what I'd call ''minimal minutes'', I was surprised he played this much in fact. Probably because he's pretty invisible out there...
Whatever way you put it Weber did not have a good season. Its harsh to judge him entirely on it but its also difficult to assign him a role on the roster with the competition he has. He's not good at forward and its rather pointless to keep him there and with our current group of defensemen he's no8... Subban, Markov, Gorges are far ahead while Emelin, Diaz, Kaberle and Bouillon are better. I guess he's a serviceable reserve D, sucks for him tho.
