Alex Galchenyuk believes Shea Weber is one of the toughest players to play against.
Thankfully for Galchenyuk, he won't have to go up against Weber anymore because the two became teammates this off-season. "We don't play [the Predators] that often, it was only twice a year, but I remember last year he hit me close to the boards and I couldn't feel my legs for like three days," Galchenyuk said. "And when he's teeing up for a slap shot, you don't want to be in that lane to block a shot. If you really think about it, who's one of the toughest guys to play against, he'd definitely be first on my list." Aug 28 - 10:04 AM

This will give Weber a chance to speak to the media for the first time and meet some of his teammates since he was acquired from Nashville at the end of June.

Shea Weber hasn't come to Montreal since he was acquired from Nashville in exchange for P.K. Subban, but his agent insists that nothing is wrong.

Jarrett Bousquet, who represents the defenseman, said scheduling has a lot do with it and Weber spends the summer in Kelowna, B.C. "His initial reaction (to the trade) was there was a pause and a little bit of shock," Bousquet said Monday. "And then when he realized it was true, he was pretty excited. Obviously, now he’s extremely excited being back in Canada and the pieces that they've put together. And he knows Carey Price from B.C. and the Olympics and whatnot, so I know he's very excited now." Weber is expected to bring leadership and make the Canadiens harder to play against with his physicality, but he is not projected to win over the fans or the media with his charisma like Subban did.

Shea Weber struggled in Game 7's 5-0 loss to San Jose.

Nashville's top defense duo of Weber and Roman Josi were on the ice for all five goals against, which included three at even strength and two on the power play. "It was tough," Weber said. "It was a tough night, obviously. We're expected to (play) lots of minutes and play some good hockey, but I don't think we were at our best. It feels like we've let each other down. I know personally I could've been better, and it's hard. It's tough right now." It was uncharacteristic night of turnovers and poor decisions and it resulted in a relatively easy win for the Sharks.

Shea Weber and the Predators watched their season come to an end on Thursday night with a 5-0 loss to the Sharks in Game 7.

Weber led the Preds to their most successful playoff run in franchise history, but it was a bitter end at the Shark Tank. Weber was a minus-three on the evening, combining with fellow top-line defenseman Roman Josi for a minus-six rating. The 30-year-old may not have had the ideal end to his season, but the future is looking bright for the veteran star and his young, talented teammates.

Shea Weber has been named as a finalist for the Mark Messier Leadership Award.

It goes "to the player who exemplifies great leadership qualities to his team, on and off the ice, during the regular season."

Weber hit the 20-goal and 50-point milestones for the third time in his career to help the Predators earn their second straight playoff berth. He started the 365 Pediatric Cancer Fund, with teammate Pekka Rinne, to raise money and donate tickets to patients at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt. Weber also hosts a golf tournament to help support the BC Cancer Society.

Shea Weber scored a goal and added an assist in Nashville's Game 3 win over San Jose on Tuesday.

Weber was dominant at both ends of the ice and logged 24:02 of ice time. Everyone was calling for him to step up after going pointless and having a minus-2 through the first two games of the series. He has seven points in 10 playoffs games now and was credited with the game winner. Filip Forsberg, James Neal, Colin Wilson scored the other goals and the Predators converted twice on the power play.

His power-play marker late in the second period held up as the winner. The Predators have a 2-0 series lead heading back to Nashville.
