Though i really think MZA deserves a look, i understand that Weise is a much better fit at least on paper since it is Callahan that he is replacing.
Except Weise is not replacing Callahan, he's being called up because Prust is banged up and will play on the 4th line (taking White's spot)--from Andrew Gross and Ranger Rants:
"The Rangers have recalled Dale Weise from Connecticut (AHL) and it’s very likely the gritty forward will play tomorrow at Philadelphia as the fourth-line right wing. However, it also seems like this may be a one-game call-up specific to facing the physical Flyers.
Coach John Tortorella wanted to make sure he clearly explained why Weise was recalled a day after Tortorella said there was not likely to be any call-ups before the schedule became heavy again starting on Jan. 1, adding, right now, there were not any players considered ready at Connecticut.
This is a different case, Tortorella said.
“In that role, it’s an easier call-up for us,” Tortorella said. “He’s a guy who’s going to bang. I think he can handle that. We’re not looking for a guy to get in the top six. This is an easier situation for us right now."
Most likely Weise gets sent back to Hartford after the game.
