“This is my personal stance. I don’t understand how a great organization like the Montreal Canadiens doesn’t have their captain present, even if he hasn’t played all season, ” stated Lévesque on the section. “I don’t get how he didn’t come back to Montreal.”

Weber has actually been on the LTIR all season and won’t be playing once again. If the Canadiens had actually called a replacement captain, Weber’s name likely wouldn’t have actually shown up.

The Canadiens attempted to trade Weber’s agreement at the due date and practically had actually an offer made with the Coyotes. Having Weber’s $7.8 million removes from the wage cap versatility that GM Kent Hughes longs for.
