I can't vait to see Veber play. Vith him our pp should be vay more affective. That said, ve don't knov yet if he vill be in the lineup or not. For vhatever its vorth, I think ve vill see some magic if he does play.
It only took half a season and almost being in last place on the PP for the coaching staff to try something. I was getting so sick of seeing Breezy's terrible shot and even worse passing. Teams will adjust now because we have a cannon at the point, leaving Kovy and the forwards free to work their magic. Of course, all this being said, they'll opt not to play Weber on Friday and we\ll go 0-something on the PP AGAIN!
Mark my words, if they play Weber, he's up for the season.
First off all, it's not certain he'll play.
Second, if he does indeed play, its not certain he'll be good on PP.
Third, we're winning so..doesn't really matter for now.
Meh, I'm not expecting much from the Weber. In fact ,not even from Pacioretty, the key call up is Kyle Chipchura.
Weber may not do much same with Pac man but it will be a good experience the same way Maxwell got to see how much quicker and harder the NHL is. Let them get a taste and go back down knowing what they need to improve. Look at D'Agostini, he had one game end of last year and was then past over for Stewart because he played nonchalant, he definitely took his second chance more serious.
Weber was not ready to play in the NHL at the beginning of the season, plus there was no reason to rush him with the vets ahead of him all healthy at the time.
His time in the AHL was well spent. I have watched every game and have seen him progress and recently(last 5-10 games) show some real consistancy and prowess in all 3 zones. This is the perfect time to call him up. Maybe he gets a shot right away maybe not, but i do believe he is ready to take brisebois spot after a couple tryout games at 4th line forward/pp/odd 5 on 5 D shift. He needed to develop in Hamilton. He will be fun to watch on the PP, he has a cannon and a good wrister.
edit: Windsor is producing lots of good posters these days. LOL
also, i think Weber can do a good job till we land a top defenceman at the deadline. Then we are deep for the playoffs.
I believe OB will play 50+ games for the Habs next season.
If OB plays 50+ games as a hab next season and IS successful at it (meaning not a minus player, or even leniance of -5 or better) then I will change my Title to something of your choosing so long as it isn't ban-able.
What are you going to do for me though if he isn't a success?
I think it's just a little worrysome that it's happened twice now in the first year. I actually worried a little the first time now that I see it a second time, I'm praying it doesn't happen again this year or next.
