And hopefully he finds a home and can blossom with the change of scenery. It's too early for him to head back to the Swiss league or whatever. He showed flashes of being able to play in the NHL. It would be nice if he could get a fresh start somewhere before giving up. Although if there is KHL money in play, he would probably do well there, probably better than having to try to prove himself all over again in a new NHL organization.
That first part would be ok IF the habs weren't making money hand over fist...
It's hard to believe weber has zero value league wide, even with the pricier 1-way QO, no reason not to sign him, let him try to win a spot in camp, and if he fails, let him rip it up in Hamilton until some team comes calling with an offer in-season.
- weber, for all his detractors, is NHL- level in many of his skill sets. He'd easily tear it up in the ahl if he can't crack the habs, and while he may have minimal interest right now,if he's up near a ppt pace in the ahl, which he can do, it's almost a given that some team nearing the deadline would be happy to pick him up for a late pick.
Hope mb manages this asset properly...
