Why would you doubt he gets a contract longer than two years? We're not going to go halfway with Weiss. Either we intend to keep him and pay him a very lucrative longterm deal(which I assume is the case), or we part ways with him and go in a different direction. Plus in a short term deal we'd have to pay him more per year.
Also, Weiss will still be a very good player for another several years. I doubt he loses that much ice time. It's the prospects who have to come in and prove they deserve the ice time over Weiss, not the other way around. Let's not get too optimistic about prospects yet.
