Phaneuf or Weber?

If you could get one of these two young defencemen, now and for the future, who do you choose?


I seen the Bieksa vs. Phaneuf one and thought this one is much more appropriate. And to be totally honest, i actually think i would pick Weber - the more i watch him the better i think he is.

While Dion is great in his own right, from what I've seen from the both of them leads me to believe that Weber will end up being the better defenseman.

Phaneuf still, as much as I like Weber, Phaneuf is the better skater, better hitter and better offensively, but just by a bit.

Weber is far better overall.
Phanuef is awesome but Weber is AMAZING at everything

Weber's better then him. What a waste of pick a pick for me. (my pool, I gotta pick 2 dmans). Phaneufs been dissapointing this year, and he does not scare Canuck fans at all.

I see there are 14 Kelly Hrudey fans on HF. (Don't lie, all those who voted Weber were swayed by Hrudey's arguments on HNIC)

It's actually pretty close. Right now I give the nod to Dion, but Weber is turning into a great dman. (As a sidenote, friggin Nashville, they already have one of the best D in the league, but are going to have a top 4 of death in a few years. It will be scary, but it shows how important drafting is.)

It's tougher for Shea to put up the points though because he doesn't get much PP time behind Zidlicky & co. He still gets 2:30 per game, but Phaneuf is getting double that. (5:35) Phaneuf also gets more PK time, but I think down the line you'll see them put up similar numbers and play close to the same number of minutes. I think Phaneuf will still be the better player, but the gap will get narrower as time goes by. Neither is a good defensively as they are made out to be, but they both have the grit, hitting and hockey smarts to be effective dmen right now, and they will only get better as the mature.

Weber is awesome, but I'd still take Phaneuf.

I'm in the same boat, I think he's just a bit better.

They are both great young defensemen.

Pretty close, as I've always loved Weber's game, but I still have to give it to Dion. Gamebreaking ability and the extra open-ice intimidation factor served as my tiebreakers.

If we would have done this poll last season Weber would be lucky to have 2%.

Many said he had the better defensive game than Phaneuf but his offense would not transfer to the NHL, guess they were wrong.

Too hard to pick for me, I'd probably go with Phaneuf, but ask me again tommorow and it could be Weber, both are really really good young d-men.

Weber.

I don't think enough people see him on a game to game basis being that Nashville is never on TV.

Ask this poll again in 2 years and I dont think it'll even be close.
