  1. Ha! Me too, I'll admit. Realistically, though, Weber is probably not going to go belly-up right away...the decline will be slower than that. So, we should get a couple of near-prime years out of him.

    Since this is the first time in a decade that Weber is not paired with a D-man at least as good as he is, I still think much will depend on Beaulieu. If Michel Therrien pairs Middle-Aged Weber with Old Man Markov - which, being a drooling idiot, he probably will - a Norris Trophy nomination would be borderline miraculous.

    More likely, that pairing will give Price another shot at the Vezina throphy. :(

  2. If the room was against PK because they were jealous of the attention he gets in the city and media, or his style, etc, then it doesn't bode well for the leadership in the room and management. Good leadership would have told the whiners to stuff it. PK has done great things in the city and takes a lot of heat and pressure off the rest of them. Good leaders would have stood behind him. If Pacs is slamming PK for making a big charity splash, then I don't have much respect for him. He needs to grow up.

  3. Weber isn't going to be terrible, no one is saying that...what we are saying is he currently isn't as good as Subban and will decline much sooner (injuries aside). He will still be a decent defenseman in a couple of years, but he won't be top ten in the league and PK might be top 5 still.

    This trade might have been better if Weber came with a pick or prospect, but straight up it is simply a terrible deal.

  4. This trade was MT not liking or knowing how to use dynamic and talented players. He wants boring defence only hockey. He wanted PK out and Berg got fleeced. He should have gotten a prospect or pick to go with Weber.

    Remember, Berg and MT don't believe in analytics and stats. They believe in "character" and "the right stuff".

    My prediction.... MT is gone in 18 months. PK will be awesome in Nashville, we will be treading water and this trade will look as brutal as we think.

  5. I am ready to give up..,what's next, we trade Price for Rask?

    I understand why MT likes Weber over Subban. He is less prone to errors. It is the same reason PK gets the shaft on Team Canada. MT wants to play a risk free, boring game and PK would often try to hard and turn it over.

    That said, the Weber deal is an albatross and will be a huge problem in future years as he declines. More importantly, when they fire MT and bring in a coach who wants to use speed, they will regret not having PK.

    Clearly there was an issue between PK and management or in the room, but I still think this is brutal and should not have been done given Webers decline and long contract.

    This day just keeps getting worse.
