For years, Sabres fans have hoped that Tyler Myers would develop into the next Chris Pronger, or Zdeno Chara, but so far that dream hasn't panned out.
Well, would you settle for Shea Weber instead?
According to a report from WGR's Paul Hamilton, Myers spent some time this summer hanging out with the all-star Weber, picking his brain on how to use his big frame and strength to play with more nastiness in the defensive zone. That nastiness is something that doesn't seem to come naturally to Myers, but it's something that, when he displays it, adds an important missing element to his game, and one that you find in most of the Norris Trophy candidates each year.
