I wish people who haven't actually seen Weise play would stop commenting on his play. He is not a terrible skater and would be described as an average skater AT WORST. He hits more than Oreskovich and has more offensive upside and younger.
People are also commenting that he's a bad fighter... so is Oreskovich, but Weise will drop them more often if needed.
He's not Raymond fast, but he's certianly not Hodgson/Sedin slow either.
He's shown at every level that he's far hungrier to succeed than Oreskovich, who actually quit hockey because he wasn't motivated to play any more. How does someone that young lose motivation to play in the NHL?!?!
He's certainly an upgrade on Oreskovich.
I think he and Lapierre are a great foundation for a much improved 4th line. I think Volpatti, Pinizotto and Weise will all fight for the 2 wing positions with Lapierre at C all year.
No question that those three are an upgrade on Glass "Miss an open net in SCF" and Oreo.
