Well, in terms of "effectiveness and overall usefulness", St-Denis and Weber must be switched, at least, if we give any weight to the advanced stats. Weber basically did everything to make sure he wouldn't play defense last season.

Of course, if Markov or Subban or even Kaberle goes down, the call up would obviously be Weber.

In other words, I took the "terminology" of ECWHSWI, who categorized St-Denis as a 7th D-Men. With the Habs, that "spot" on the depth is occupied by Diaz. Actually, if would be occupied by Bouillon if our 5th D wasn't an offensive-minded D-Men with some serious defensive shortcomings (Kaberle).

Still, I'd be willing to give a chance to Weber at the end of the lockout. He's playing QUITE a lot in Switzerland,with good results, and, who knows, maybe it's only a thing of confidence. IF he wants to come back, that is. We'd have to consider as extremely possible the fact that Weber remains in Europe when the lockout ends, even if it ends this season.
and we'd lose him trough waiver...
