Wednesday's Dump & Chase: Fishbowl

Shea Weber is everywhere.

It still kind of feels like our best friend moved away. It's weird to see Shea Weber in a Canadiens jersey. I'm not truly convinced it will ever be normal.

The former captain of the Nashville Predators has been thrust into the media pits of Montreal. I've never seen so much of Weber in the off-season. Actually, I don't think I've seen this much Weber in the media during the regular season either.

For someone who enjoys their privacy and has a reputation of being stoic in-front of a camera, he seems to be holding his own in the melee. Dare I say, he looks like he might even be enjoying himself. The rest of the league might finally get a chance to see some of Weber's personality. The off ice personality that made him so loved here in Nashville.
