    If he does that with 14 as his center he might be an MVP candidate.

    I don't think he will have 14 as his centre.

    Pacioretty - Galchenyuk - Radulov

    You have to look beyond "well he was on Team Canada, ya know."

    His playoffs were piss poor.

    You do know the preds were the most traveled team of any in the playoffs by that point, going 7 games against Anaheim and then and their 7 versus San Jose? He was fine in the Anaheim series.

    His numbers all season show that he was giving up shots and scoring chances against with alarming regularity. Thats not "fine", especially from a guy we are going to ask to be our number 1.

    I guess the eye test versus analytics is ongoing here. I watch half of the preds games this year, especially near the latter half of the season, weber wasn't being beaten all that often.

    And he was a beast on the power play.

    He is very good with the puck on his stick there is no doubting that.


    I also saw a fair number of games. (Including playoffs probably 25 preds games last year).

    Webers speed being an issue is noticeable.

    That's what this trade will be all about: old school vs analytics...cage match.

    U cannot discount "system" though, MTs is all about limiting the opponents speed (helping Weber's game), Laviolette's all about just get the puck back and attack without any emphasis on limiting opposition speed attack more so with Interference penalties being far less likely to be called in the playoffs vs regular season.

    I watched weber play, and I guess you did as well, team like Chicago and Dallas.

    Teams that are no slouches when it comes to the speed department. Nashville's top D paring was not their weak point, it was the third paring after Jones was traded.

    See we can argue all day about what we saw. But at the end of the day the stats support what i saw and that is the fact that teams were getting many scoring chances with weber on the ice.

    And the fact is that webers decline started under a similar system with trotz

    The eye test actually proves he's not as good as he was 3 years ago. I've said this like 6 times.

    There's going to be a new eye test, with all of us watching, starting in about three months. I'm going to wait until then before judging.

    Aren't those stats biased by the coaches?

    Yeah, because you watched a lot of preds games I'm guessing.

    Price always needs to pitch a no-hitter coz our line-up is sub-Mendoza line quality in terms of offence.

    The PP last year was shocking.

    This years team is already way better than that. If Condon just provided league avg goaltending, last years team was playoff bound.
