Weiss is the sort of player that you
when you're rebuilding. I'm pretty sure he's in Mr. Tallon's plans for the future, seeing as though he kind of already surveyed everyone asking if they want to stay; that's why Horton was traded to Boston.
Also, the "OMG payscale therefore get rid of him" argument is getting a little old. The guy is what he is. Any improvement is a good thing. Removing him does not automatically mean you'll magically get an offensive force in his place.
For the record
Panthers GM Tallon says he'll listen to all offers
Panthers GM Tallon says he'll listen to all offersSaturday, 02.05.2011 / 12:20 AM / NHL Insider By Dan Rosen - NHL.com Senior Writer
Share NEWARK, N.J. -- If you're a general manager interested in acquiring any player in the Florida Panthers organization, don't hesitate to call because GM Dale Tallon is willing to listen.
Tallon, who figures to be a busy man between now and the Feb. 28 trade deadline, told NHL.com Friday that no Panther is untouchable -- not even prized goalie prospect Jacob Markstrom.
"It depends on the deal, but I doubt that's going to happen," Tallon said of Markstrom.
He's probably right on that one. Tallon would have to be blown away by an offer to consider trading Markstrom, who is considered the Panthers' cornerstone goalie of the future, but he'll listen anyway.
"Yeah, why not?" Tallon said. "This team hasn't done anything in 10 years, so why wouldn't I? It's not like we're a championship team. We've got to get better in every area."
