I like what Picard has done for us but I'd really like for Weber to get a chance. I'd like to see what he can do offensively for us on the PP.
Let the two of them battle it out. Besides Weber first game in training camp, I was positively impressed with his play the rest of the camp and he could be of use to us considering what he's been doing in Hamilton.
I also wouldn't understand the decision to recall him only to have him sit on the bench. What would be the point of that, we could have just recalled Henry if that had been the goal. I don't know..
Even with the goals last game, the powerplay looks awful.
I think Picard is a capable defenseman, but I'd take a shot with Weber. He's playing really well in Hamilton and we could use his shot on the point.
Big news. Hope Gorges is okay. I suspect we'll see Weber dressed as a 7th d his fist game or two, regardless of how JM hopes to use him long term. But if Gorges isn't okay then it's straight into the fire.
Good luck Yanik! It's the right time for him to see if can stick in the NHL.
I've been among the more vocal Spacek bashers, but I have not a bad thing to say about his game over the last 7-8 games.
Unless he returns to brain cramp ville, he more than deserves his spot in the line-up.
Exactly, he was awful to start the season, but he's settled down more than adequately. Frankly, for all the complaints we've heard the other way, Spacek's been asked to do more and has delivered more for the Habs than Beauchemin has for the Leafs. Credit where it's due.
