I'll try to be nice enough not to respond in kind to your unnecessary and condescending next-to-last sentence....
If, by 'go look at my numbers,' you mean state actual facts instead of posing my opinion as fact by putting "fact" in front of it, like you did. I'll spare you the actual numbers. I did go look at them, though. And, looking at 05-06 to 11-12, Weiss's ppg varied a very similar amount to that of Samuelsson's (Weiss actually varied higher). Not, "a lot more consistent," as you state.
Additionally, even if his numbers did vary as much as you have fabricated inside your head that they did, that, along with his age, are things that Holland would/should have taken into consideration when Samuelsson was signed. Thus, the beef is with Holland, not Samuelsson. I think any of us, had we been in Samuelsson's position, would have signed that contract too. And, as is already established, Samuelsson's injuries last year can't be held against him any more than Weiss's can be held against him this season.
Also - being NHL players for the Red Wings is the only thing the have in common - also false. They're forwards, were both injured in their first season of the current contract and had been injured the previous season. Both are also currently questionable free agent signings by Ken Holland.
Where we agree: He spent 4 years with the wings and the rest of that sentence. No one was angry the 1st time around. And, Weiss is 5 years older.
Fact, Samuelsson missed most of last season with questionable injuries, sore pectoral mussel ring a bell? in 06-07 Weiss hit 48 points, he never dipped below 40 after that before the lockout, he hit 60+ twice and 57 in that time frame, out of those 6 seasons he scored 20 plus goals 4 times. Like I said if you watched you would see that Samuelsson was very inconsistent, because he was lazy sure his numbers look similar, but that is mostly a bi product of who he played with, and a lot of secondary assists. He had a lot of stretches of not scoring his first time with the wings. Weiss has had 2 fairly severe injuries the last two seasons (both requiring surgery) which inflates his average games missed due to injury count. I feel like given a healthy season he will have no problem getting 60+ points with the talent we have.
