That was my first post of the thread and it was a joke!

Look further in the thread, I said he wants to be called Webber.

Weber will turn out to be at least a consolation prize for allowing Streit to walk. The trouble is, by the time he's ready for the NHL, so will several other promising Dman prospects. It'll be nice to have choices, though.

I didn't see enough of Weber and Carle to compare their game , but have the feeling that they are very similar player .

I would like to have the point of view of the fans that are following the Habs prospects , on both Carle and Weber ; what are the differences betwen their style ?

I feel that Carle is a little farther away from cracking an NHL roster were as I can see Weber coming in mid-season THIS YEAR. Carle can cook in the AHL this year and maybe next (although whats with his injury? how long until his return?)

I feel Carle plays a more safe game. Whereas I can see Weber jumping into the play.

what i know is that both Carl and Weber put a lot of points during their junior career . I remember that Price said when he came up of the AHL last season , that the most impressive player of the Dogs was Carl .

This is Carle's year for us. Either he earns an injury callup or he gets put to the back of the bus next season. Cause Weber is on the verge of passing him now not to mention all the other D that may be coming to hamilton next season..

Carle's injury was a real disappointment for him, he needed to show his stuff this preseason. Valentenko is the defensive replacement Henry is the Goon/defensive replacement and Weber is the offensive replacement at this point IMO.

I was lambasted by a few of the crustier Habs HF denizens (not whitesnake btw whose opinion I respect) for daring to choose Weber higher up the ladder on the prospects list. The kid is a legit prospect that maybe does not get the recognition from fans outside the OHL

Having said that I think that Weber starts the year in the AHL with the knowledge that he has made an impression on the brass of the Habs. They will allow him to develop his D game at the minor pro level and he will be available if some kind of disaster strike the regulars

The kid is an offensive D guy as he has clearly demonstrated. He has lots of skills that will develop into a good pro career. Possibly as soon as next year as a regular.

BTW no Knights fan likes the Kitchener rangers, but you have to appreciate talent when you see it. Especially a habs draft pick!

PS: while Bogosian Doughty and Pietrangelo got the press for D, I think Weber was a perfect fit for the habs style. something folks overlook

And i'm taking german classes and the w is pronounced v in Deutsch, and Swiss is half french half german country so the appelation is coming mostly from german
being German in background I can tell you that you are right in the V pronouncing of the letter. There are name exceptions though (people and places)

Geez ! how old is Carle ? 20 ? Just because Weber got few good games during the pre-season , doesn't mean at all that it's the end for Carl ...

Oh god. They are already starting the ''keep Weber up to start the season'' campaign on La Zone and even Dube is drinking the koolaid.

Yep. Being Swiss I can also tell you that depending on the Swiss-German dialect one speaks it'll be anything from veber, vebber to vaebr, etc

Anyhoo, glad he sticks with the North-American pronunciation of I guess Webber. Otherwise, we end up with another Streit/Straight/Street discussion...

why the facepalm?

Anyway he talked about it on CKAC this afternoon. Mainly when the question was "If you are Carbo who plays on the PP with Markov." He said Weber. Then he refined his statement by saying he would be usefull on the 2nd PP unit where you dont want a forward playing the point because the penalty is about to end. He made the comparison with Sergei Kostitsyn saying that his addition to the lineup gave more options to Carboneau and he felt Weber could do the same but he cautioned that there is still much to be seen cause he hasnt played real nhl lineups yet. But anyway he gave him his best rating of all the prospects at camp. Considering he's seen all the games and how I usually trust his analysis I'll go with what he says.

Bah! I don't think Carbonneau really takes advice from la Zone or any other media outlet anyways, so why bother? It's just fantasy talk, entertainment.

i guess yannick knows best how to pronounce his name, but usually weber is spoken as wäbber, with a normal w in swiss-german. since he's apparently of vaudois decent, that would mean his name is pronounced in a french fashion, something like waebèr.
but what the hell do i know

It will be fun to have another player stating: "che veux chouer". Damn, I miss Streit for that.

He has released a statement indicating that he does wish to be called Vannick.

Rotowire describes him as gritty, which I didn't know about his game. With his height and weight, and blast from the point, he sounds like a young version of Matt Schneider, back when the Habs were breaking him into the league.

They are similar players imo, the difference is that Weber has an outstanding shot whereas Carle is a better passer imo, while Weber can pass the puck well and Carle has a accurate shot, I would say their bread and butter is the shot of Weber and the passing ability of Carle. Both need to get stronger physically and defensively imo.
