from John Glennon of the Tennessean,
When Shea Weber hammered home 10 goals in the first 20 games of the season, he became the first NHL defenseman to do so in more than two decades.
The problem was that those numbers drew the attention of opponents and media around the league, which were two of the bigger reasons Weber’s goal production stalled over the next few months.
Rival coaches concentrated their efforts on finding ways to stop Weber’s feared one-timer, and journalists immediately turned him into a trendy pick for the next Norris Trophy winner.
