Last year they were basically even. Weber had 2G and 16 PIM, Goli was a +13 better (he was even in DAL, however).
Will the fact that NAS lowballed him in arbitration affect his year?
I own Goligoski in my keeper and would not trade him for Weber with that pathetic NSH offense in front of him. Goligoski has Ribiero, Eriksson, Benn, plus Souray's cannon from the other point to where he will be gold this season in that setting as he will finish between 50-60 mark where as Weber will hover around 15G and 50 pts. Much rather have Goligoski this season although Weber is the better of the two that NSH offense in front of him will limit his points upside. Goligoski
GWG and SHP should be discarded as they are not predictable stats nor does any defenseman contribute to them by any appreciable extent to begin with. Goligoski will consistently outpoint Weber on DAL, Weber would need to leave NSH to a legitimate offenseive club to outpoint Goligoski.
Goligoski also has just as high goal upside as Wbeer does...I think they potted 14G to 16G respectively last season and that was with Goligoski getting bumped by Letang from PP1 in PIT. Goligoski is at least putting up 50 points in DAL this season and can go as high as low 60's and at least 15G. Weber will go between 15G-20G and 46-low 50's in points. PIM wise Weber was at 56PIM last year and Goligoski 40PIM....Weber also had 36PIM the year prior. So all in all Goligoski doesn't have the name value that Weber does, but Goligoski will outgun Weber by at least 5-10 points a season in DAL his G upside is at least 15G himself and his PIM is around 50PIM . Definitely rather have Goligoski as he will be the best of the two this season.
Weber and it's not even close. Due to off-ice issues, Dallas has the potential to finish last in the west. Any team coached by Trotz will always be in the playoff mix and play very solid defensive hockey. Finally, factor in next year too when Weber might be playing elsewhere with a more offensively inclined supporting cast.
