When he plays like he has throughout January ... and highlighted tonight ... he's elite. When he plays as he did Oct-Dec, he's vastly overpaid and underperforming with no logical basis for inclusion in Norris discussion. Being a fan favorite and face of our franchise does not mean he performed as needed or hoped all season long nor was his early play worthy of league award talk.
I respect your opinions but we will just have to agree to disagree. And it is a fact that you are in the vast minority here- you would be hard pressed to find any knowledgeable hockey people who would agree with anything you said above. And are you really using number of even strength goals as a basis for proving your theory?? As many others have pointed out, so much of what he does does NOT show up on the scoresheet. Just take him out of the lineup and see what happens to our team.....
Trotz tonight: "Weber is having the best year of his career"
I am sure Trotz haters will just dismiss anything he says, but regardless of how you feel about him, he knows more about hockey than ANYONE on this board, especially defensive hockey.
