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
