Weise has the tenacity and aggression that Oreskovich is lacking.
You guys will love him after the first couple games. Plays hard, finishes every check and stands up for his teammates. I like this pick up considering the 4th line was looking pretty bad, none of the off-season moves really worked out for wingers.
This guy beat up Carcillo already and has a 28 goal season in the AHL. Still just 23 and has shown leadership in the past. Character guy that will fit in well here. Bottom line is he's younger and better than Oreskovich. Easy choice.
From the limited pre season I saw, this is what I saw from Oreo, he wasn't playing with the chip on the shoulder that he needed to.
