For some reason, my excitement level for Weiss is increasing daily. I hope he turns out to be Flip plus goals.

 

But will he be as friendly as a dolphin?

None, as Weiss is Canadian.

Meant the article on the Fil brothers, was tongue-n-cheek...

Happy to have Canadian center

Love this part:

 

 

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.

“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here.''

 

 

Now if Babs could just have that meeting with 93 that would be great!

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

Anyone wish that Weiss took #18 rather than #90?

Seems like a good guy in that locker room interview video, I think St. James posted it. I think he's going to be big for us for years to come.

Yeah, I'd imagine he'll have career years with us.  In an interview with the Free Press (I think), Alfie said that Weiss was someone that teams prepared for when playing Florida.  Now with Zetterberg, Datsyuk, Franzen, and Alfie on the team, opponents will probably be focusing less on Weiss and the ice will open up a bit for him.  60-65 pts. is my guess for this season.

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

This is going to be exciting. It's been a while since we've had two new acquisitions in the top six.

Wouldn't be too surprised if Andersson ended up switching to 18 this season.

Now if Nyquist switches back to 89, I guess I'll have to buy some lottery tickets soon.

Watching Weiss highlights is getting me all gitty and excited for October 1, can't wait for his career year that should be a good one with the linemates he will have. He really does have some serious skill, watch this video and try to tell me otherwise.
