Jay McKee had a leadership role on the Sabres for a long time. Now obviously McKee > Weber, but Weber is still young and can still grow into a poor man's McKee. I don't think on-ice role disqualifies Weber at all.

Plus, you just gotta love how he's willing to stand up for his teammates any chance he gets, despite the fact that he will get himself killed if he continues to try and fight people

The biggest question is his role inside the locker room, which of course none of us can know for sure. But I think that this year was a great confidence inducing year for him and I wouldn't be surprised if that translated in a vocal way in the room as well.
