I would give Weber one more year, but he will have to clearly beat out someone ahead of him. I think he will have to be very good, not just average.
good players yes, but no one is asking him to be a #4 D... 5th or 6th with PP time (kid has a great shot). and 5th/6th D usually dont respond as well to changes, wether it's system, side, partners, whatever (otherwise they'd be top 4 )...

and in his case, it's more than changes... the kid went from 4th line, to scratch, to 4th D, to 4th line, scratched again, to 6th D, 6th D again with different partner, PP on the left, different coach, different system, PP on the right - all in the same year... think the only thing he didnt do is goalie...
