I've watched him for a few years and he's a pretty average WHL player, let alone anything higher.
I disagree, Edge. He improved his game a lot over the year. He's never going to be a top 2 line player. But I definitely see Weise in the NHL as a bottom 6-er. He's got enough talent, but the drive in him will bring him there.
To me, he looks as determined as Dale Purinton was when he first came up. Yeah, you can all laugh at that, but anyone who saw him play his first few games or in the minors knows how tough he worked to get there.
Granted, after that it didn't seem like he cared much anymore.
