Nashville’s Weber Flies Under the Radar

From Ryan Dixon at THN,

Trotz acknowledges Weber and his former world juniors teammate, Dion Phaneuf, share many attributes. But the coach feels there’s another comparison that’s more appropriate when describing Weber’s game.

“He (reminds me) of a young Rob Blake,” Trotz said. “He’s going to be real strong, he can shoot the puck, he can play offensively and he can step up defensively.”

His championship-laden path to the NHL ensured Weber would receive a healthy amount of recognition. But the 49th pick from the stellar 2003 draft class doesn’t mind one bit playing for a team that, despite sporting mustard uniforms, can often fly under the radar.

“That doesn’t matter to me,” Weber said. “My teammates know what I can do, I know what they can do for me. That exposure just is not that big of a deal to me. If someone notices, they do. If not, just keep paying attention to the little things.”
