In Response to Re: Weber and the Grand Canyon
[QUOTE]In Response to Re: Weber and the Grand Canyon : If Doughty managed to follow up on his Norris quality season, then I'd put him in Webers' class. He didn't so I don't. Weber is 4 inches taller, 20 pounds heavier, and out-hit Doughty 211 to 137. Weber also shoots as hard as anyone not named Chara. To me, Weber is the man right now.

Doughty would certainly have been in the top 5 in norris voting, so his down season could easily be argued as being as good as Webers best season to date.. He didn't follow up his 60 points season with another 60 points season, but Webers season wasnt as good as doughty's was the previous season either.
I see 3 inches, and 15 pounds.. but either way.. Webers got 2 more points in a 160 more games, while being 4 years older.. was a plus 7 verses a plus 13.. played 6 more games..
I don't really care that he shoots 100 mph instead of 96 mph..
Hits is a flawed stat, Chara only had 153, w/44 points and a plus 33 and finished behind Weber in voting..
The best arguement you can make, is at 5 years in the league, weber is as good as doughty, and I would be ok with that, but in that case, I am going to take the younger kid who moves better.. He also throws the best hip check in the league right now..
