Not that I disagree that that's important, but it's not the whole thing, either. Paired with Hannan should allow Weber to be more O-oriented, but he's not. Last night there were a TON of times he simply wouldn't step up and keep the puck in the O-zone or look to put it on net. On the PP teams are stepping out and all he can do is flick the wrister - we're simply gonna' have to get a little more creative to get him some of "his" shots, and the only guy creative enough is a guy who thinks shot-first anyway (Ellis).
