Pete is ok, too, and while he also is a big load, he could not be considered fast on his skates.

both... Suter, Hamhuis, and Zidlicky will all see increased PP time from the point. I think Hamhuis will benefit the most from Weber's absence.

actually, the 'first' unit pp they started in game one, and had finished the preseason with, had arnott-dumont-bonk up front, with suter and zidlicky on that unit on the blueline, and the 2nd unit had erat-legwand-radulov with weber and hamhuis on the blueline..

right now, they are trying koistinen filling in for weber on this '2nd' pp unit.. note he had a little over 3 minutes of pp time saturday night in that role

He was put on IR on Tuesday. If you're using Yahoo for your pool, my roommate has already badgered them about getting Weber updated to IR.

Weber moved to IR: Predators defenseman Shea Weber was moved to injured reserve on Tuesday after dislocating his kneecap in Thursday's season-opener.

Weber, one of Nashville's premier blueliners, is expected to be out three to six weeks as he recovers.

When he is taken off the IR, what happens to your Yahoo roster? Does it prompt you to drop the extra player you picked up in your pool? Or will it auto drop someone if you dont deal with this BEFORE he comes off IR?

as I remember it, nothing happens unless you try to play Weber or make a trade or add another player. It will then give you a message saying you have someone on IR that's no longer eligible there and you have to deal with it. You have to keep him in the IR slot though.

There is no auto-drop. You will be unable to add/drop a player until you take the guy out of the IR spot who is no longer on the IR.

how happy are you guys with your 1st PP unit? With four nice options on the point's, do you think Weber will ever get back on the 1st unit when he returns or will he play majority on the 2nd unit ?

I for one, was surprised. I thought he would be on the 1st unit after last yr's production

thanks

X-rays look better but Sullivan doesn't feel it

Quote:
Weber update: When defenseman Shea Weber suffered a dislocated kneecap in the season opener on Oct. 4, the initial prognosis was that he would miss three to six weeks. Poile said it's now looking like four to five weeks, which would put Weber back in the lineup in early to mid-November.

"There's still some swelling, and until that goes down he can't move quickly and he can't go on the ice,'' Poile said. "So it's not going to be three weeks, but hopefully it won't be six weeks either.''

hope it's 4 weeks from october 3rd and not 20th...

Is it really that hard of a question to answer?

Kinda hard to answer when he hasn't played a single game.

And does it look like we're happy with our PP unit? Does it look like we are happy with anything?

I'm sure with Trotz behind the bench that he'll be shuffled every which way imaginable.

Weird. Obviously I did some research before I came or I wouldn't have said "I for one, was surprised. I thought he would be on the 1st unit after last yr's production" which implies I was under the impression from looking somewhere, that he wasn't on the 1st unit. For some reason I thought he got injured in the 2nd game and I got the stats from the 1st game, but now that I look back I have no clue where they came from, considering he got injured in the opener.

P.S your team was doing Ok when I made the original post (2-2) so this seemed like a valid Q. Don't get you panties all in a knot, my team sucks too but I still don't leave a question unanswered from another board for over 2 weeks b/c of it....

These are just some general questions regarding Shea Weber.
  • When Weber was drafted at the time, how did his scouting report read?
  • Was he mistake prone during his time in Kelowna, or an absolute rock?
  • Was his progression as a player continuous, or was he always that good?

I checked the archives of the local paper and it seems clear the Preds were much more excited about Kevin Klein.

Quote:
Fenton compared the 6-foot-1, 187-pound Klein, who totaled 44 points in 67 games for Toronto St. Michael's of the Ontario Hockey League, favorably to first-round selection Suter.

''For [Klein] to still be there when we picked, we were thrilled,'' Fenton said. ''He was one of our top-rated defensemen. We've talked about Suter and Klein being a defensive pairing for us down the road when we're competing for the Stanley Cup.

''They've got mobility, passing ability, good hockey sense and great character.''

For Weber, size mattered it seems. They did trade his Rockets teammate Thomas Slovak to "make room for him".

Quote:
In selecting the 6-3, 190-pound Weber and the 6-4, 245-pound Stehlik with their next two choices, the Predators added some beef, which they don't have an overabundance of in the organization.


''Those picks were in part based on our needs to get bigger and stronger,'' Predators General Manager David Poile said. ''They were two of the biggest defensemen taken in the draft.''
I think he really exploded the following year.
