Being physical and laying big hits does not necessarily equate to being great defensively. I always thought Ryan Suter was a much more complete dman than Weber was when they played together in Nashville.
Yeah I've been Habs fan a many years & long for the days of the big three when other teams were told "the crease is ours" & "trespasser's will be moved".
