Nice. I don't know a lot about Weiss but seems like a good value and replacement for Flip.

Combine this signing with Alfie's and it really changes how Holland's offseason has looked.

With the way things seemed to go with the Wings regarding UFA's I was afraid he'd end up with the Blues at the last second.

How much room do we have exactly? Im terrible with this stuff.

I'd link you to capgeek, but every time a team makes a signing their page crashes from views.

With Alfredsson taking up $3.5m and Weiss' $4.9m Detroit should have $2.3m left.

I just posted this in the locked thread..was Weiss the captain in Florida? Did we just swipe 2 captains from 2 new divisional rivals?

No, Ed Jovanovski was their captain last year I believe.

Not a cap-ologist myself and unfortunately Cap Geek is on overload.

Someone else will have to help out.

But I think this leaves them in the neighborhood of 4 mil.

Wow our top 6 just got ramped up add that to Datsyuk resigning. Also if helm is healthy our team is so much better. I don't see where Bert and Sammy fit on this team tho

Not sure how we sign Gus, Andersson and Smith with 2.3 milion but there must be some kind of plan in place.

Personally I was hoping for Grabovski but Weiss brings a lot to the table as well. And will be a very nice fit for our system. Nice job Kenny atta boy

f*** !!! GONNA BE A LONG 5 YEARS ! ! 4.9 CAP HIT OMG ... really hating ken holland man , wish jim nill stayed

4.9 is a steal in a weak FA class when teams want to overspend.

Weiss was just on Sportsnet being interviewed.

- Said signing with Detroit was a "no brainer"

- Was down to St Louis and Detroit - Toronto didn't contact despite rumors they were in

- Is excited to put on the Wings jersey, and to play for a classy organization.

- Is excited to learn from Datsyuk, Zetterberg and now Alfredsson

good old days?? LOL we didnt get 40 yr old washed up players and overrated injury prone guys , back in the day we got the best

injury prone guys? Weiss has averaged 74 games a year in his career and that number is only at 74 because he was injured last year. Make some sense before you post this garbage.

This is a great signing. Replace Fil with a better player fora reasonable term and cap hit. Doesnt get much better.

They still have one compliance buyout left.

But I am of the thinking that at this time only Smith gets over a mil and very little over a million at that.

So you are looking realistically at about 2.5 being used up on all of 3 of them.
