Forget which of Stepan or Weiss is better, that's not an issue.

Weiss is also a very fast skater, that could possibly help Gaborik's off-the-rush, type of game.

Again, Weiss' style of play would fit here. He has an edge to his game, hes highly skilled, and he's probably under-paid if anything.

Weiss would be a very good addition.

If the Rangers are serious about Kaberle, and actually add him... how do you add Richards? Can't do it. So, Weiss, the less expensive option, would add a top line center, maybe not the golden goose that everyone wants, but hes a legitimate option.

We could comfortably retain our RFAs and improve the roster in other areas because of his very reasonable contract.
