Weiss

I think he still has value. Was good playing with Z and D when we needed him there. Good shootout threat. And he'll be decently cheap.

LOL.

Kenny is that you?

Compliance buyout can't be done. Only eligible for players signed up to September 2012.

Stuck with him.

Was the big fan of the signing,but don't know wtf is going on with Weiss?I know he's playing for another team,under another system,blah,blah...

but he looks out there like a rookie euro player and not like 29 years old veteran...completely lost in time and space.

I don't think there is anything wrong with Helm on the second line but he would need more fire power on the wings for it to be a good second line in the NHL. Helm is capable though.

I think Babs is obsessed with keeping Dats and Z together because they have spoken about how much they like playing together. Which is all well and good but for the good of the team it makes more sense to have 2 legit lines. They probably said that because there wingers are often Bertuzzi, Abdelkader and Cleary which is ridiculous. These line are productive despite these players IMO

I agree that he could be ok as a second line center, but would certainly need capable wingers

On a 1 year deal, something like 1.5, I think he would be a great mentor for the youngens entering the bottom 6. He'd be a functional pp/so specialist, kinda like homer, minus the so in regards to homer

Dude, the guy is 40 and always hurt now. He shouldn't even be on this team, because he makes us slower and older.

That 1.5 million could go to a younger, hungrier forward in GR. We have enough mentors already.

Quit trolling Grimesy.

How is looking at the needs from other teams + the current Weiss situation trolling? No team in the whole league would be happy paying a fourth liner almost 5 million annually.

With Cleary and Sammy going, I'm fine with keeping one of the more reliable vets around as a depth forward that can play on any line. Betting he retires though.

This is not a guy under-performing. If the conversation was "what's wrong with Weiss, through 25 games he only has 12 points", that would be one thing. In that situation, I could understand the excuses in terms of transition, poor linemates, etc. That isn't the case at all. He has 4 points. FOUR. A guy brought in with considerable dollars, to fill a considerable role, expected to play responsible, be a good team player.... blah blah blah. He was brought here to boost offense. He has 4 points. Some nights he looks like he MAYBE might be ready to possibly get his 5th point... but then doesn't.

He isn't under-performing, his performance is non-existent. Bust with no hope of substantial turnaround.

I do agree with many others in the sense that if weiss was at the 15-20 point mark like he should be wed be atop the easetern conference.

While I agree that his play thus far has been beyond disappointing, I don't think it's time to call him a bust yet. Then again, I don't think I'd even call him a bust after a full season.

Tonight could be a resurgence for the guy. Call me blindly optimistic, but I think he'll catch on sooner or later.

can we give him back to florida? im done with him hes not trying

the guy isnt doing anything to make his play any better. he dont hit he dont forecheck he stands still in the defensive zone. he dont carry the puck his passes are sloppy. he cant wait to get off the ice

go make a hit at least

In the defensive zone he stands around to accept a pass and then gets caught standing still with the puck. He needs to make himself available while on the move. Also just took out abby.

It really is kind of bizarre how absolutely invisible he is out there.

He LITERALLY doesn't make anything positive happen.

Skate fast/hard? No.

Pass well? No.

Shoot (at all)? No.

Watching him play, I cannot believe this guy has put up even 20 points in a season.

Its funny. So many people were excited to get him lol.

I don't really see why that's funny unless you take joy in the disappointment of others. lol

Well I was one of the very few who were against it. So many talked about how we will finish like 2-4 in the east. And Weiss will be more worth the money the fil and etc etc etc.
