The fact that lots of teams passed on him doesn't mean much to me either. There are lots of considerations to take into account there. People just don't take on 4th line players contracts without a very good reason and need. It seemed like a good fit.
Who knows, for his playing style and the new coach and teammates a change of scenery might be just what the doctor ordered. He is young and this IS despite how the thread sounds, a 4th line position he is expected to fill.
I'm just becoming a little cynical I guess after getting excited about all the fourth liners invited to camp who failed to impress. I'm really hoping that Weise is the guy who can fill that role. I'm just not getting my hopes up yet. The AHL numbers are encouraging though. Ok, I'm starting to get my hopes up again.
