First 2 seasons in the league head-to-head (for comparison sake)

Weber 107 GP 19 G 31 A 50 PT +21 102 PIM (198 shots) - Physical Monster
Phaneuf 161 GP 37 G 62 A 99 PT +15 191 PIM (472 shots) - Physical Monster
I'd personally go for Weber by a whisker. Weber wont put up as many points but he is better defensively and although i haven't seen a huge amount of either of them i'd say looking at the PIM that Weber takes less stupid penalties while still playing a good physical game. Phaneuf has a cannon of a shot but he needs to improve his accuracy i mean 37 goals on 472 shots is pretty awful. Weber needs to take more shots he doesn't even average 2 shots a game. If he started to shoot more his offensive stats may increase.
