Yannick Weber was drafted in the 3rd round, 73rd overall, in the 2007 draft. He is an RFA right now, and only cost the Canucks $650,000 against the Cap in 2013/14. That is less than Tom Sestito !
But then, TommyBoy led the NHL in fights, and Yannick didn't even fight anyone once. Damned neutral pacifist Swiss...
What'd he do?
What did he do ? Played the yo yo defenseman role, moving in and out of the lineup, as others were injured, ( or he himself was dinged up ) or pulled at the whim of Torts. As a result, he played 49 games in Green and Blue, and scored 6 goals, and had 4 assists.
He also was a -7, which is as much indicative of the team's suckage as anything else. That is no where near the Green Jacket levels of Edler ( -39 ! ), but still. He was on for 10 goals for, and at least 17 even strength goals against.
Even if a few of them were the going to the bench, not involved in the play types that make everyone ( rightly ) pooh pooh plus/minus, it is never a good thing to be on for more against than for, when you are a supposed "offensive defenseman". Half those 6 goals were scored on the power play anyhow !
At least he had twice as many shots ( 70 ) as hits, ( 39 ), and blocks ( 37 ), as a good offensive defenseman should.
So was he any good?
