Majority of Weiss's career numbers are not any better then Dubinsky's.
Dubinsky is at 13 goals right now with 20 games to go. He could score 20 goals.
He will be a consistent 20 goal guy.
He's only 23 years old, Weiss is 26.
I feel Dubinsky has a better career ahead of him.
Right. And can skate. If you can do that, it is advantageous to have a physical team (extremely). The two teams playing for gold are a great example.
You would figure that it's almost impossible for a team to lose with World Class Skilled players like Ovechkin, Malkin, Kovalchuk, Semin, Datsyuk, and Radulov. Yet not one of the Eastern European Countries (including Slovakia and the Czech's ) were able to win a medal.
I'm sure Weiss is every bit as good as you say he is. I'm not even completely for or against getting him. I'm just getting tired and frustrated when looking at a new New York Rangers team year after year who's players keep changing and the results are status quo.
Especially the top players. Make up your mind Sather! It's hard to feel connected emotionally to your favorite team when guys are always coming in and then leaving.
Look at Calgary. They haven't won a Cup with Iginla and I'm not sure they ever will. But you don't see that franchise trade him away because the team didn't win a Cup. Same with Vancouver who made a commitment to the Sedin's. Chicago with Toews/Kane, NJ - Zajac and Parise, Anaheim -Perry/Getzlaf, San Jose -Marleau/Thorton, Detroit - Zetterberg/Lidstrom/Datsyuk,etc.....
Jeesh Crosby just scored
