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.
Fine, but if you're gonna give him a chance, give him a real one.
Keep him on D. Live with his mistakes. Make him feel comfortable.

Some kids will respond well to constantly feeling pressure from battling against another youngster for a spot, others won't. It doesn't mean the kid that struggles should be ignored or dealt.
