Ok, this is coming from a hardcore Plymouth Whalers fan, so bare with me. I've followed this kid since he was 16 and IMHO he's VERY good. I was beyond thrilled when he signed here (but obviously im under-thrilled at his performance thus far). He's a top line playmaker with hands and on par defensive ability. Is he gonna win the Selke? No. Is he reliable? Yes. He's not overly big or overly physical, but the dude can play. I'm not one to scapegoat, but honestly he looks injured out there. tonight he was really weak on the puck, and his wrist shot looked like something a school girl would put up. I think the wrist injury is still lingering, and even Babs said something about how Weiss covered up how bad his wrist was hurting him in the pregame. I think he should be rested, cause when he's 100% he's a 50-60 pt Panthers player. 60-70 pt wings player.
Then the dude needs to sit it out on LTIR until he's 100% cause right now, he's more of a liability than anything.
