Weiss is 28. Artie will be 23 in a few weeks. Weiss has a 3.1 mil cap hit. Artie's cap hit won't be over 2 mil. Artie is very good defensively and has good chemistry with Dubi and Cally.
This seems like a trade just for the sake of making a trade. No point to it, especially when we'd have to give up additional assets.
Thank you. I'm glad finally someone said this. Weiss is one of the most overrated players in the league and I've never understood why. He doesn't do anything great, he's just "above average" at everything. He's second line material at best (on a good team, not the Panthers, of course).
