He only got a 5th and he was actually playing for the Panthers. Weber is not. A 5th round pick for Weber would probably end Bergevin in jail for high way robbery at this point. He has a big shot and could turn it around, but right now he's terrible AND not playing.
Ellerby struggled defensively, pretty hard to be a shutdown d-man when you can't stop anybody. Weber is at least good at generating offense and on the PP. He is much better defensively than Ellerby is on offense.
How can you say he IS terrible when he's played one game??
