Nice article. Didn't know that Jacquemet had gone back home. I was impressed by his play with Kootenay. Had some great shifts with Maxwell, nice chemistry, wished we would have offered him a try but oh well....
"Vous êtes souvent comparé à Mark Streit par la presse canadienne. Que vous inspire cette comparaison?
Elle me fait forcément plaisir, car Mark est un modèle pour moi. Il a réussi à faire son chemin en NHL et peut aujourd’hui être considéré comme l'un des meilleurs défenseurs de la ligue."
I don't know, but the fact that he sees Streit as one of the best defensemen in the league is scary...
best offensive defenseman, wich he is also, but the difference is that streit was 28 when we drafted him, Weber is 19 now.. he can learn and will most likely become a better 2 way player then Marky Streit
He couldn't keep a spot amongst the habs 7 dmen lineup. That's a pretty objective judgement of what the habs' coaching staff thought of his ability to play D (he sucked).
He played about half the year on defense. He never "lost" his job on the blueline, so to speak.
He was better as a forward with PP time on the point, I agree. But to try and paint him as some kind of Aki Berg-esque doofus on defense is just plain wrong IMO. He was a competent defenseman, for the most part.
