Those are some high expectations for a kid who looked lost in his first couple of games in the bigs...

Okay, I take that back. My point being, I hope he can bring some life to the powerplay.

He played one game one game in the NHL. If I remember Carbo used him on D on only one PP in which he barely got to touch the puck (not his fault, the rest of the team blew). The rest of the game he played as a forward, a position he might not have played in years, perhaps ever.

I hope Gainey doesn't make the same mistake and use him as a forward. He might be a Swiss defensemen but he's not Streit.

Actually he played 5:58 on the PP in his only NHL game.

You mean the same Streit that's somehow managed to remain a plus-player playing all year as a D-man with the Isles ?

I sure hope they don't make the same mistake with Weber...let Dandy be the Habs' new "FP Santangelo"...

I remember he lost the puck at the blue line a few times, panicked when he was pressured and missed the net nearly every time he shot. Nerves definitely got to him his first game. Hopefully he gets more confident as the game goes on this time.

Has Weber ever played forward in his career besides in the one NHL game with us? I don't get why they keep playing him out of position. He's probably already nervous, no need to make him more uncomfortable out there.

Haven't you read the memo? Weber : is Swiss, has a good point shot and on ice vision, is around 6"0' 195lbish and is not very physical. Thus he practically *IS* Streit. Anyways the Swiss all look the same and think the same way. If he were not a hockey player he'd be a banker, book it. In short : if Streit played well at forward Weber should have the exact same development curve, as should all Swiss defensemen in the league.

(note to any offended Swiss people : I'm being sarcastic)

I think they're just trying to protect him. Forechecking forwards would take too many liberties with a young d-man.

You wouldn't mind if he was, would you? Just this time: RE-SIGN.
Looking at what Streit said in German interviews he LOVED playing and living in Montreal. Bummer.

Not all Swiss are banker!!! He could also be a watchmaker, a yodeler or working in the chocolate industry.

Well, this time I certainly wouldn't mind. Watching the Olympic Games next year with more than three NHL players in the Swiss roster with some of them even NOT being career back-up goalkeepers would be....mind-boggling.

Seriously, I'm happy for Weber. I really hope he is able to come up to the expectations, but I'm a little skeptical. It seems to be a little much for such a young defender to come up into the NHL from the AHL, were he certainly had a good season, right before the playoffs and having a big impact on...anything. Besides I, like most here, don't think he will play a lot except for the power play. And if otherwise there seems to be something of a tradition in playing guys like him as forward. I don't know if this is a good thing. I just hope he is sufficient and finally gets a chance playing as a defender next season. I don't think there are a lot of defenders in the NHL that became better defenders by playing forward.

Too late, too little.


This season is over, even if the Habs make the 1st round of playoffs.

Is he that tall ? I have seen elsewhere that he is more like 5'10.
