A perfect niche for Yannick Weber?


Recommended Posts

I'm starting to think Yannick Weber should be trained by Canucks development to be one of those players that can play defense and forward to an extent. Reason being: power play specialist.

I think, if he becomes a 4th liner, he isn't taking a spot from the more deserving (IMO) Stanton or, down the road, Corrado. However, his place as a pointman on the PP could be a very valuable asset to us.

I dunno... I think he's better in that spot than Bieksa or Hamhuis, or even Edler a lot of the time... worth it for a crummy 4th line spot that we don't have anyone good to fill with at the moment anyways.

not a bad idea.. I think Weber's getting a bad rap for that one period in pre-season but the guy is a hell of a hockey player, tons of potential and with a little defensive polishing could become a cheaper version of Garrison..
