Weiss makes $4.1 million this year his cap hit is $3.1 because of the way the deal is structured.

So, IMO, that comparsion doesn't hold much water, not to mention to compare contracts between a center and a Defenseman isn't a good way to gauge value.

I'm all for locking up Weiss for life, just do not want to overpay a guy just because he wanted to stay here while the team fielded was subpar.
And thanks you made my point even better than I did in a world where Dennis shootout specialist Wideman gets 5.5 Weiss on the open market is going to get 5 easily.
