Are we going in the process in building the smaller team possible?
Weaver.....Why? He's a righty? We got Pateryn and Drewiske that can serve as 7th defenseman anytime!!!

Before we put him on waivers, we need to give him a 2-year deal and see if he doesn't have any surgeries done that he's been postponing.

Tinordi - Weaver on a bottom pairing would be good.
This is the only thing I can see happening and I would be cool with it.

Well weve witnessed this for 2 years now, any trade rumor that we get from any media outlet is not happening. The habs have a much more restricted policy towards information.

If true it'll be cheap depth, which Bergevin seems to be a fan of. What would the pick be? A 3rd?

Weaver is a better hockey player than Drewiske, regardless of size. His game is suitable for Therrien's ''system'' than Diaz despite being the same size.

He's still very solid and reliable, but I really don't see the fit. IMO the team don't need depth on defense they need a top 4.

So now as a #6-7 D-men we have Bouillon, Tinordi, Drewski, Beaulieu, Murray and maybe Weaver... ???

Come on, Drewiske hasn't played a game in almost a year and Weaver is a better hockey player than Drewiske has ever been. The dude has almost 600 NHL games under his belt.

"Other than he is a righty".....well....it's probably mostly that. This D needs players that play on their right side. And surely don't believe the kids are ready. Undersized.....but we are used to it right now. Hey, it's depth. I don't hate Weaver though and of course would hate him even less if the overall size of that team wouldn't be awfully small but I guess that if you keep the kind for some kind of future and you vision that guys like Beaulie, Tinordi and maybe Pateryn will be in your D core....Weaver belongs in there.

What the hell's the point? He's a UFA at the end of the season, and we have no chance of doing anything in the playoffs, so why would we waste our picks on someone?

I guess we're still on par for the course of mediocrity, and we will continue to be if we keep making these kinds of nothing sideways moves.

That would be a horrible trade.

So Bozon is in the hospital, let's trade him for scraps...

We don't need Mike Weaver. We already have his clone being an healthy scratch most games so i really don't see the point. I'd be fine if it's Cube or Drewiske for Weaver but i wouldn't spend a draft pick for him.

I understand that he may be a better insurance policy than Cube or Drewiske but that's not saying much

I'd rather call up one of Beaulieu or Pateryn than trade anything for a Mike Weaver. We already have the great Bouillon sitting so what's the point of such a trade?

Moves the puck well out of the defensive zone and owns decent instincts. Can log a lot of minutes. Takes a lot of hits in order to make plays.
He's a human punching bag. Like Weise in a fight.

Obvious angles are his righthandedness, veteran player who can log minutes -- basically, a cheap soft-landing option if one of our vets is moved by the deadline.

Apparently, doesn't handle back-to-back games all that well, somewhat of a concern in the compressed sched that is in effect over the rest of the season. Saw some press box time on account of this, in the beginning of February.

Such a Habs move it's scary. Halpern and Drewisky last year, this year something similar I presume. We are who we are I guess. We'll never go for the big name.

Lioks like Mike Weaver heading to Montreal #flapanthers

No idea if he's just piggybacking on Dreger's rumor or if he actually knows anything.
