When Weiss came in this year and played well, I thought here we go, Wings are finally gonna get the player they signed, but does'nt look that way. I think it's best he moves on after July 1 as well, but with the Babcock situation still up in the air, if he does'nt resign, then whoever our next coach is, he may use Weiss more. Weird situation.
Ya like I don't get it, today was the perfect day to try weiss with Nyq and pulk when they moved Sheahan up instead babs uses glenny on that line where he shouldn't be. Glendening is a 4th line center and pk guy nothing more and nothing less, he should never move from that spot
I agree with much of what you're saying, however, I do believe, in Weiss' case, that it is a good idea to play a couple games down in the minors to get his game going after missing as much time as he has. I expect he will average around 18 minutes or so down in GR over the two games playing in a top 2 line role with similar skilled players he has played with in Detroit. I think it will benefit him to play substantial minutes with the Griffins, against slightly lesser competition, rather than playing 8 minutes in a third line role with the Wings. Confidence is huge in any sport, and if he can feel good about himself after a couple games with the Griffins, I think that will get his game going with the Wings. The key in my opinion is that after this conditioning stint in the minors, Babcock needs to give him in a top 6 role with linemates he can actual play with. There is no point in relegating him to the third right away again, let the guy play his game...
I agree with this completely. Build up his game conditioning and confidence in the minors for two games, then get him up playing top 6 and pp with guys like Gus and Tatar
