Weber

Luc Gelinas ‏@LucGelinasRDS 17s Weber se retrouve jumelé ŕ Drewiske ce matin...ŕ suivre.

I'd like to see him get a shot wirth Beaulieu struggling. If he can gain a bit of confidence he can help us back there.

Looking forward to seeing him play. He did score two goals in the playoffs versus the Bruins

He was awesome in the playoffs vs the bruins, if he can get some confidence back, he could be key to our success.

Why do you make us watch Gomez on the PP in the playoffs? WHY?

Gomez directed the whole play. If you watch at around 0:05 you can see him pointing towards Weber.

Dude has been waiting patiently, would be nice to see him succeed and force the teams hand and keep him in the lineup.

That or play himself into being worth something in a trade. Really shocking/disappointing that he hasn't had a proper chance. It's too bad about the injury.

You think watching this is bad... wait till you see Desharnais on the PP this playoffs.

Weber, now getting in, is just a recognition of the desperation of the Habs on D. They will now be counting on a guy they didn't deem good enough to get into more than 3 games this year.

Next stop on Desperation road....Kaberle.

I like his work ethic. Supposedly he's always one of the first in practice, and always participates in game day skates. He's a team guy who never complains. I'm glad he's finally getting a shot. Hope he makes the best of it!

Good opportunity for Weber. He's got to be hungry. If not, well, that would speak volumes about him.

Weber better not make 1 mistake or he's going back right up in the press box. management has never been patient with this kid I don't know why. Not a top 4 D but well surrounded I always thought he could have been a good #5-6 defenseman and deserving of a good shot not just 2-3 games

I hope this means we won't see Bouillon or Gorges on the PP.

I agree, they unfairly buried him this year. More a result of circumstances. They played Kaberle early hoping to be able to trade him, then Subban signed. When Diaz got hurt, Weber got a chance but got hurt himself and is just getting healthy now.

Weber as to be the guy with the worst confidence ever.

He always struggle to keep thepuck at the blue line and once he does, his game is ****ed cuz he's only thinking about not making mistakes.

I don't understand what he could bring better than Beaulieu at this point..

He used tu be more sound positionnally than Beaulieu but with the low confidence he must have now, I don't know if it's still true.

Weber would look good with a big-gritty-defensive minded left d-man with him... Like Emelin.

Got a feeling he's gonna stay in Switzerland next Fall.

I agree with most posts here.

With Weber, it might be too little too late.

I don't understand why they handled him like that.

1- They got no real confidence in him ?

2- Diaz just surpassed him as a D-Man, and they are pretty similar in size and offensive talent ?

3- He's too small for an already very small D-Corp ?

4- They want to give more chances to younger d-men from Hamilton ?

Why would he stay in Switzerland? He can make more money in the NHL. If the Habs were to trade him to a team needing skill and PP help that may be the best situation.
