Sometimes I think it's a terrible way to judge a player.
Players need to be judged based on their role with the team. Weiss is a two-way center, but also a top-6 forward and is more of a playmaker than goalscorer. To judge him you need to look at his points, assists, +/-, and faceoff %. If he's achieving decent numbers in all categories, he's an A+. If he's doing well in +/- and faceoff %, but is just okay in points (as he's been) he's still an A-. If he lags in the defensive aspects, he's not filling his role well, nor is he if he has a substandard number of points since he's still on a scoring line.
