Personally, I'd rather they just put Weiss on the shelf for the rest of the season and both sides can put this season behind us and start fresh. He's basically missed two whole seasons, he's with a new team and can't be in good shape at all. I can't really see him adding a whole lot. While I expected more out of Legwand, I still think he's going to bring more to the table than Weiss. I just don't think the Wings can afford to put someone in who needs 10 games to get his legs and conditioning back.
At times this season I completely forgot he even played for this team.
Smith sweeping that puck right off the goal line behind Howard at the very last second tonight against the Leafs was truly a thing of beauty!!! That kind of heady move is what he is so capable of at his best, and I just hope that he keeps building on that level of play into his habits!
Injuries played a factor no doubt. However, the problem with this team and if it misses the playoffs will be the 1 million shootouts they had that they lost. If they even won a third of the shootouts they lost they would be in the playoffs right now. Those points were huge and it's showing right now
