Jame, Mike Weber is not a shutdown defenseman. He will probably never be a shutdown defenseman.
This is from a game against the Lightning,
after we traded Regehr
. He was hidden from the Stamkos/St. Louis combination
as much as possible
with Rolston determining the matchups.
In this game against the Islanders, also after the Regehr trade, also at home:
He barely saw Tavares, and was instead matched against the Isles' second and third lines.
Defensive zone starts do not inherently result in a higher quality of competition. Sekera-Ehrhoff was the team's actual shutdown pairing after the deadline.
