I dunno why some people are already labeling him as a bust. Nobody should have expected him to make the NHL and be in a role that would contribute to the teams success this early.

He's a project, he won't have instant success.
It is a mob/idiot mentality. People see a second round pick that did well in college and they think that should instantly translate to the NHL.

Meanwhile, Weircioch is still growing into his body and still learning how to use his skills in bigger faster leagues than he was in previously. Eventually he will evolve, but to ask him to step in to the NHL when teams are on the hunt for playoff spots and expect Weircioch to produce right away is simply ludicrous. A lot of people need to get their head out from where it has been firmly planted.
