You just brightened me up a bit by reminding me we've got Weber and Rivet.
I'm so done with Tallinder...
Those two have been bright spots this preseason.
Weber has been very physical as well as smart defensively. I could only find stats for 3 of the 4 games he played in.(NHL.com does not have stats for the hockeyville game) But in those 3 games he was a +/- of 0 in each. Which is impressive since he had a +/- of 0 in the 7-4 opening loss to Toronto.
In the two games Rivet has dressed they have given up 3 goals total and he is a +1. I don't think its a coincidence the Sabres played their best defensively with him in the lineup
