Weise isn't much of a fighter but hes always there to have his teammates back, he sticks up for himself he doesn't totally suck on the 4th line and best of all he doesn't take stupid penalties.
Kind of a ***** move with the Thornton challenge but he did just have a great tilt with Horton
Bolded is bang-on. Add that he is still young, and may have legit 3rd - line upside down the road.
As far as the Thornton thing goes, we don't actually know if Weise would've dropped the gloves, because Thornton didn't wait for the whistle - making Weise think that Thornton would "draw his own penalty". If Thornton waits until the drop of the puck - Weise may very well have dropped the gloves. A smart move by Weise is being ridiculed by our own fans
