Elliotte Friedman just reported that the Wings, Stars and Leafs are in on talks for Weiss.  I'll post a link as soon as one is available. 

 

Could be a nice pickup.

 

Edit: Also, recall that he's about to become a UFA.

Malik had tweeted this

Hotstove stuff: Panthers, Weiss talking about contract extension w/ Pat Morris in person. DAL, DET, TOR have asked about Weiss's rights. -- George Malik (@georgemalik)

Geez, are we going to have to compete with Nill for all the same players? It's like he and Holland have the same map to the treasure. This better not be a thing.

Perhaps just one of the many upcoming subtle messages to Filppula that basically demands him to lower his price.

Won't happen.  Flip's days in Detroit are done.
 
Malik followed up on this with the following...
 

Re: Weiss and Detroit: as @johnniyo noted, it's not the first time the Wings have called about him. I'd imagine that the theory is that if the Wings lose Filppula's speed, they'd want to replace it (thus my crazy theory that Stalberg is headed to Detroit).

I want stalberg ^^^^

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Weiss would be nice. Gives us a legit 2nd pivot and could let Zetterberg and Datsyuk play together.

The only thing I'd be worried about with Weiss is his injury history.  If he stays healthy he seems like he might be capable of being a 50-60 point guy on the Wings.

He doesn't have an injury history to speak of.  He was injured this year.  Before that he consistently played 75-80 games a season for the last six years.  Having an injury doesn't necessarily mean one has a "history" of injuries. 


GMRwings:  "Well, in other civilized countries, 16 years old isn't considered underage.  For instance, I believe the age of consent is 16 in Canada.  There's some US states where it's 16 as well.  

 

Get off the high horse.  Not like she was 10."

Used to watch Weiss play for the Plymouth whalers all the time. Very talented. Bet he would do really well on a team that isn't the panthers, especially here in Detroit with dats and z

Weiss is a legit option.

 

If in fact he is an option.

Weiss would be a nice fit. Gives the Red Wings the luxury of playing Z and Pavel together, while Weiss centers the second line. I never felt like Filppula was enough of a threat offensively on his own to handle that role. Weiss has a more consistent history of producing.

Except Weiss was put on IR before the deadline and wouldn't have been available for Detroit's playoff run.

Do we need a 6'0 tall, 30 year old, left handed centerman?  I know he's a good player when healthy, but he seems like something we already have.  

 

Then again, he would help our current top 6, meaning guys like Cleary and Abdelkader wouldn't have to play on it.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Thinking long term, not just this season.
