Tonight marks Shea Webers return to Bridgestone Arena where he played for 11 seasons, and lead the team on and off the ice.
The impact and legacy Weber had on the Predators is something quite remarkable, especially when it comes to playoff stats, adding to the fact he leads most categories and is a defenseman.
Eric Engels of Sportsnet, Tweet'd a picture of the Preds playoff stat leaders and it's Weber's name that reigns supreme.
Weber holds the record for most power play goals, blocked shots, shots, time on ice and hits, and is tied for the lead in goals, assists and points.
The Predators general manager, David Poile, made a huge statement about Weber's legacy in Nashville.
"I certainly believe he's been the most important player for our franchise and always will be" said Poile.
The Preds GM went on to say that basically the team just hasn't been the same since the trade.
“Shea meant everything to this franchise,” Poile said. “He did it all, and we miss him a lot. We knew that was going to be the case because when you make a trade of the magnitude that we did you’re changing a lot about your team, the way you play, chemistry, culture and all of those different things.”
Do you think the Preds regret the trade?
