Like others said this is really confusing, great in the OHL and in the AHL RH shooting D with over 100 NHL games under his belt and he is not worth anything?
I've always been a Weber fan, but to say he didn't have a chance just isn't true. He's simply not played well enough to hold a top 6 spot on our D. Got passed by Subban, passed by Diaz, now got passed by Beaulieu and Tinordi. He had a stretch of about 20-30 games last season where he had a real chance to make his mark, and he was just ok...

I hope he can find a spot somewhere else in the League, because he could be a bottom paring guy that helps the PP.

Maybe at 600 or 700k Weber has a lot more interest with a dropping cap.
Maybe. Most teams would certainly expect absolute minimum expectations to come at an absolute minimum price.

I had read somewhere that MB was trying to move him this season but wanted at least a 3rd rounder for him. If true, obviously no takers, but would be really surprised nobody will give anything for him and that he isn't worth qualifying.

And hopefully he finds a home and can blossom with the change of scenery. It's too early for him to head back to the Swiss league or whatever. He showed flashes of being able to play in the NHL. It would be nice if he could get a fresh start somewhere before giving up. Although if there is KHL money in play, he would probably do well there, probably better than having to try to prove himself all over again in a new NHL organization.
That first part would be ok IF the habs weren't making money hand over fist...

It's hard to believe weber has zero value league wide, even with the pricier 1-way QO, no reason not to sign him, let him try to win a spot in camp, and if he fails, let him rip it up in Hamilton until some team comes calling with an offer in-season.

- weber, for all his detractors, is NHL- level in many of his skill sets. He'd easily tear it up in the ahl if he can't crack the habs, and while he may have minimal interest right now,if he's up near a ppt pace in the ahl, which he can do, it's almost a given that some team nearing the deadline would be happy to pick him up for a late pick.

Hope mb manages this asset properly...

Not much to say. We have Diaz who is a better version of Weber. If no one wants to trade for him, you let him go.

The loss of a "potential" asset of a 6th or 7th rounder is really no loss at all.

Bergie should offer Weber to Feaster. He'll probably bite.

I'd be surprised if he didn't get a QO, dude is still a decent dman and could help a lot of teams if he actually got to play.

nobody wants to give up assets for a players who hasn't made it. He's still considered as an 8th d-man.

If he doesn't get a QO and becomes UFA, he will probably sign a contract somewhere. A team will give him a chance. They just don't want to give up a pick in return.

I think it's more about his QO. If his QO was 650-700k he'd be easy to move but at 950k, not as easy.

This will surprise some but shouldn't really. The Habs have a 23 man roster signed and drewiskie signing sealed Weber's fate. It's a sign of improving depth that this guy is being cut loose.

Getting Drewiski over Weber isn't really an improvement. Maybe salary wise but that's it. So if they're not moving big on the UFA market, It's going be more than disappointing.

Weber's horrible. You can't have a spot on the bench for a PP specialist that does absolutely nothing else. It's like having an enforcer that only plays 3 mins a night.

I'm 100% sure that if Weber was worth anything he would have been traded by now.

He has zero value.

Its possible we sign him at a lower amount from his QO then try to deal him. We didnt QO blunden last year but still signed him.

Is that possible that they didn't qualify him because they want to sign him for less than is QO or they want to trade him and they think he has more value if a team can sign him for less than is QO?

Weber has exactly 0 value. Like someone above mentioned, if he had any, he would have been traded already.

It's probably 95% about his QO as he would be a very good #7 d-man with upside.

Salary arbitration (the next step available) can only save you 15% off the Q.O. Should Weber reject that, I believe he can sign with anyone, for anything, and if he signs for less than $1.0X million/year the Habs would get no compensation despite still being RFA throughout the process.

He isn't horrible, just a bad fit for what the Habs need. If he lands in the right spot he can be a very good #5-6 putting up points on the PP.

Not sure why we could be able to do a Ferriero for Falk type of deal. Weber needs to get another start and there's surely another player in the league that would deserve that chance as well.

We've been saying for a while that he had no value.
