Some even strength numbers:

Weber
GP: 60
TOI: 11.40
Off Zone Start %: 56.5
Corsi Rel QOC: -.789
Rel Corsi: -9.2

St Denis
GP:17
TOI: 11.97
Off Zone Start %: 52.5
Corsi Rel QOC: -.807
Rel Corsi: 5.4

...confirms what (most of) our eyes were telling us, that St Denis was the more solid defenceman. I hope the Habs saw something they liked in Weber in Europe. Otherwise, they are either leaning on the promise Weber showed before he plateau'd, or they think they can find him some PP time (even with Markov, Subban, Kaberle and Diaz on the team) - IMO both these ways of thinking would be misguided.
