Weber was held pointless for the sixth straight game Friday against the Sabres. With just 10 points in 23 games, he's now on pace for a career-worst 35-point season. To his credit, Weber does have six goals so far this season, which is almost halfway to last year's total of 15, and roughly on pace for the 23 he scored the season before that. So we know his much-feared slapshot is still finding twine with regularity. The real problem, however, is that his assist totals are down, and that's more a reflection of his teammates failing to convert his passes into goals. As a team, the Preds are one of the most offensively aggressive teams in the league, currently seventh in the league in shots per game (30.7), but they are converting on only 8.1% of those shots, which ranks them 19th in the league in that category. Bottom line, we believe as long as Weber and his mates continue to fire the puck with abandon, the goals should follow, and Weber's point production should get back on track. Keep him rolling like you normally would.
