Carey Price and Shea Weber are part of Canadian history.
The goalkeeper spent all the years of his career in Montreal, and the defender wore the letter C on his jersey until he could no longer play.
The two men gave their heart and soul to the Canadian logo and had a good career.
The only achievement they lack is a Stanley Cup… But Price and Weber have won practically everything in recent years.
For Price, we are talking about a gold medal and MVP trophy at the World Junior Championships (2007), a gold medal at the Olympic Games (2014), a gold medal at the World Cup (2016), Hart Trophy, Vezina Trophy, Lester-Pearson Trophy, Williams Jennings Trophy (all of these trophies were won in 2015), two-time Vezina Trophy finalist…
The list is quite long in the case of goalies, and that makes Félix Séguin (TVA Sports) believe that the goalie deserves his place in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Weber’s case is a little different… But not that much.
He was a five-time Norris Trophy finalist (finishing second in voting in 2011 and 2012), has gold medals at the 2010 and 2014 Olympics (played an important role in coaching the Canadian), a gold medal at the 2005 World Junior Championships, a gold medal at the 2007 World Championship…
The defenseman was also one of the most dominant players during his time in the NHL, and that shouldn’t be forgotten either.
Weber is eligible to enter the Hall of Fame next year, and with the various accomplishments he has accumulated throughout his career, the idea of him joining the other Hall of Famers is starting to gain serious traction.
At least that’s what Greg Weshynski (ESPN) says:
Who is entering the Hockey Hall of Fame next year?
If there is no Russian factor: Pavel Datsyuk, Alex Mogilny and Shea Weber. If any: Keith Tkachuk, Weber and Henrik Zetterberg.

Still, it’s special to see Price and Weber’s names starting to get pretty popular in the media when talking about the possibility of seeing them in the Hall of Fame.
They have always been respected for their success, but it goes deeper than that.
Because deep down, it’s easy to recognize that they’ve been among the best players in the NHL for the last 20 years.
And the fact that certain experts publicly defend the case of two former Canadiens players only confirms the suspicion that circulates among certain people.
Price and Weber have their place in the Hall of Fame.
