Shea Weber for Pernal Karl Subban

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Weber is unreal it doesn't matter what some arm chair GMs believe. What will matter is the brute force , lethal shot and unmatched leadership abilities Weber will bring.

Teams like the Wings will again have the pleasure of facing him 6 times a year, not exactly encouraging.

I think the first 3 years it isn't even a question that the Habs won this trade, if Subban can further round out his game then it might change after that but till then...Poile traded their leader and best blueliner Nashville ever had.

I think as someone said earlier, this trade is may be in MTL favor for the 2-3 years, after that - NSH clearly wins, because of Weber's caphit and term.

As for Preds D for today - having guys like Josi, Ellis and Ekholm still leaves their D one of the best in the league. And with Rinne in goal and guys like Forsberg, Neal and Johansen upfront they are much closer to the Cup than Habs.

Miller and Glendog has their shotblocking duties cut for them against MTL.

I do believe MTL will be slightly better with Weber. Good trade for both teams, I think Subban will thrive in Nashville.

Weber is so incredibly unreal that all forms of stats prove that he is average at best :lol:

And no he isn't the best defenseman NSH has ever had, Josi has clearly been better the last couple seasons.

Lol talk about overrating a player.

Personally, I'd rather have Weber (maybe not 5 years from now, but who knows)....+ his cap hit is $1.2/year lower (I understand there are a lot of years left on it though.

You'd rather have a guy who is worse in almost every single measurable way?

Nashville made out like bandits here. While Weber is still a legitimate offensive threat, he isn't the greatest skater anymore and his defensive positioning suffers because of it. Having his defensive partner change from Josi to Andrei Markov likely won't help him.

This move doesn't make much sense for Montreal.

I recall hearing/reading rumors of Subban having an attitude, and was deemed a locker room cancer.

Now - of course none of us can verify that - however some analysts claimed Subban could be traded at last weekends draft, or shortly thereafter.

Preds got the better of the 2 Dmen in my humble opinion.

Weber is a thug. I'd rather have Subban.

This is true, Shea Weber is a thug. He smashed our captains head against the glass unexpectedly. League did fine him although he should have gotten a suspension for his thug antics.

Looks like Subban wins in the leadership department too. Who wants a thug who smashes guys heads into walls instead of offering a fair fight.

So Nashville gained a defenseman not only with better stats all around but also a better person.

$5 says Weber is gonna visit sick kids in Subbans hospital wing, and sucker punch'em.

Side note...

I wonder what Subban thinks of his beloved Habs today?

Grew up in Toronto (can only imagine the jeers he got from Leaf fans), drafted by the Canadiens, and becomes a fan favorite...It all came crashing down...Sorta feel sorry for him.

Take that thing and show it to team Canada I'm sure they care more about the opinion of some Photoshop designer than the ones actually in charge of running team Canada also known as the best team in the world.

Like I've said in the short term Habs won the deal hands down long term will depend how both players develop and if Subban can become elite defensively.

Awesome argument, I assume Kessel is left out of team USA cause he's a much worse player than Callahan and Abdelkader too right??

cause he ain't got that grit...

Last time I checked Kessel was on team USA, if your reference is about the world cup of hockey I don't know nor do I care. Don't even know if one of Weber, Subban both or neither are on the team.

It's not an awesome argument it's the truth the people in charge have to take a lot into account and as far as I know Weber checks all the boxes.

Habs robbed Nashville in this one. Everyone overrates Dman so much if they put up offensive numbers.

it's obvious but hey let us wait till the Wings play the Habs with Weber and Price in the line up. Maybe That Photoshop designer will need to make a graphic with broken nets then.
