Who's overrating Weiss?

I've also asked whether this team is better served by looking at a player like Weiss instead of Richards or in the event he doesn't sign here. I wouldn't swap Anisimov for him, nor do I think it would take that much to pry him away.

$3.1M cap hit on a backloaded contract that pays him $8.1M in his final 2 years. The real payroll is of bigger concern to the Cats than the cap, vice versa for the Rangers. I see an opportunity to open a dialogue at very least and maybe find a guy who fits nicely with Gabby at a discount.
