We could have used a shutdown dman of his caliber last year. We could use one now.
Whatever Weber had a bad first year, give him time, we have nothing to lose.
O'Byrne brought something the Habs do not have a ton of, size and physicality. Weber brings the same thing as many others do, Subban, Diaz, Markov, etc...
Yes they are both young. That is where it ends.
I do not consider the past year to be Weber's first. He had a cup of coffee the year before and also playoffs. The Habs owe it to themselves to not just throw him on the scrap heap.
Give him a 10 game chance to steal a spot. If he does not, then get something for him.
