can't wait in a season or two when he builds up a little more strength and he's blasting them about a 100 miles an hour or more from the point

I noticed on the Kitchener news that the OHL held their skills competition tonight and Weber had the hardest shot at 99.2, very good in my opinion, especially for a guy at only 19, can't wait to see the OHL All-Star game tomorrow night on Rogers Sports Net

Here is an article to go with http://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/juniors/200.../king_chl_news/

99.2?? That's sick, he doesn't have anywhere near the muscle mass he'll have at 27-30. He obviously has the technique, when his strength kicks in, oh my....

I was watching the Kitchener Rangers take on the Sarnia Sting on SNET and the commentators spoke very highly of his skill, shot, and his manners. They both think he's a very polite young gentleman.

Awesome to hear that.

Yesterday on the Team990, Tony was talking to Derek Wills(like he usually does every Monday) about the Dogs PP. Derek mentioned, that with Grabs and the Kostys gone, the Dogs don't really have "a PP player that can set the tone and get things done."

Weber would make an excellant PP QB if he joins the team soon.

Hockey's Future Article - 10 March 2008

This native of Morges, Switzerland is rapidly rounding into quite a nice prize for the Habs as a third-round selection. Not only is he a huge part of the OHL Kitchener Rangers’ success, but he was also the leading defensive scorer in the WJC – despite playing on a weak Swiss team.

“When he came to our training camp this year he really opened a lot of our eyes with his play,” Timmins said. “He’s really, really technically sound in all areas and he’s got a heavy shot.” Weber’s put that heavy shot to good use, averaging just shy of a point per game with 20 goals and 53 points in 55 games. In addition, his 75 PIMs show he’s willing to get his nose dirty. “He’s really strong and thick,” Timmins said.

As the only NHL-drafted player on his Swiss squad, Weber received much of the opposing team’s attention. Add that pressure to the fact that Kitchener is poised for a deep run in the OHL playoffs, and Timmins feels these experiences are ideal. “He’s being put into pressure and leadership situations, which will only aid him in his development,” he explained.

So, wait... Weber's also a tough guy? I thought he was basically a point-producing powerplay specialist. Boy, was I wrong. Does anyone know his height and weight?

Weber is a mix of Bouillon and Streit

Hopefully the hitting and heart of Boullion and the offensive production of Streit and not the other way around. ;)

He's 5`11 and about 195 lbs.

He reminds me of Yvan Cournoyer. He was short at 5. 7, but talented, fast and built like a Tank. Even though Yvan was small, players really knew it when they got nailed by him.

At 5.11 and nearly 200, Weber will not be easily pushed around. I like it, another talented Tank for the Habs. Weber should be tough along the boards and hard to move. Being able to move the puck up ice and possessing a hard shot, is just plus plus. Habs got themselves a good one here!

Yes he was the #1 Star of the game and finished with 2 goals and 1 assist as Kitchener won 6-4 over Plymouth.

He now has 4 goals (3 power play goals) and 1 assist in 2 games.

Wow, he is doing an excellent job. Obvious hard worker. I checked the site and while I was there, I checked on his size. See blow.

Sounds like Montreal has a good D coming up the system. Not likely to be in Hamilton this season as the Rangers should be in the playoffs until the end. I wonder if he has a chance to make the team out of training camp? There should be room for 1 rookie defenceman with the odds that Brisebois will retire this summer and Bouillon assuming the press box / spare role, IMO. Might be another reason to sign Streit to a 2 year deal as they are both from Switzerland. And WOW 99 mph slap shot. He is still a kid. Could challenge Chara and Souray for faster shot.

Yemelin, Subban, Valentenko, Fischer, McDonagh, and Weber. Pretty good D in the system. Almost too bright. BG might have to trade some of these prospects for draft picks or part of package for star player as only a few of these players will get a chance in Montreal. Too much depth. Must be tough to have too much depth.
