Sekera, Leopold, Ehrhoff, Sulzer etc all are softer, smaller dmen. Last season Weber had more hits then Sekera + Leopold combined and Weber only played 51 games that season. Weber was 2nd in hits / game last year behind Foligno (who only played 14 games)
I get what Weber brings. That said, he's not part of the top 6 right now -- if he can bring a simple, safer game while continuing to play a physical game, great. That said, he's got to find a way to recapture some of his previous form as he's still throwing pucks away, even in a pick-up scrimmage where he's being pressured by AHL-level scrubs.
