How so? Azevedo is creative playmaking C who's main weakness is his skating and top end speed, who is at his best when he's creating chances for his wings, but is weak on the defensive side of the game. Weal's main strengths are his defensive game, his skating and speed, and his ability to create chances for himself off of those strengths. Other than the size issue Azevedo, and Weal are almost nothing alike in terms of how they play the game. Azevedo is very much the type of player that needs to be in a scoring role or nothing at all, but Weal has the hockey sense to be effective in either a scoring role or in a checking/PK role (which is where I could see him latching on with the Kings.)
