Well, there are relatively "many" young players who don't explode into NHL regulars in the 3-year ELC or even 4-year timeframe. I don't think it's really noteworthy that Weber hasn't. Lots of players down through the ages have bounced around a bit before either failing to stick or before establishing themselves. At this point, I don't honestly have an opinion on which way Weber will go. But "change of scenery" time is basically here for him, and the team which loses a player in his situation rarely gets anything out of it. That's ok. I'd keep him another year *if* we had no better option, but would of course hope that we somehow did have better options. It's down to "don't care either way" for me at this point. He's a good player, but needs some kind of fresh look. I don't see that coming here, and don't mind if it comes elsewhere.
