The more comfortable Predators defenseman Shea Weber feels on the NHL level, the more he's making life uncomfortable for his opponents.... The top blueline sensation of that draft so far has been Calgary's Dion Phaneuf, who last season moved straight from the junior ranks into a starring NHL role. He posted 20 goals, recorded dozens of memorable hits and this season is averaging more than 27 minutes of ice time per game. But Weber's teammates believe he will in time be comparable to Phaneuf. "The Flames needed Phaneuf right away, and they made him one of their go-to guys on the power play and the penalty kill,'' Suter said. "I think Shea is just as good as (Phaneuf). When you get put in more situations, you start proving who you are. Shea is definitely the real deal.''more
