There's a very good chance you're right on the last part--that Avery doesn't last out the season but Weise hasn't proven a lot yet as a penalty killer and Hagelin as far as I'm concerned is better off getting more minutes in the AHL and trying to ratchet up his offense which seems to be missing at this point.
