Machacek is a guy who will hit, he's solid defensively and brings good energy. He's dropped the gloves a few times in the AHL, although not heavyweight bouts by any means. He's a guy who could sub in on the third line if needed, whereas Weise is strictly a 4th line banger.
I just don't like this move at all.
