Now this is a cup contending second line. Although if booth still struggles again this year we could buy him out and put that 4 million to someone else or give it to jensen next year or kassian.

The way it is now though I look at our second line. Booth is a question mark, kesler is the only really strong player we have slotted there. And I would almost prefer to see him on the wing at times.

Now I am excited about weiss in the lineup but there is nothing saying he would even come here.

Just a pipe dream for now i suppose.

I guess I would also have to question if flordia would deal him. Even if he does not want to resign in flordia would flordia want to invest in lou right now? Or are they satisfied with goal tending now and in the future. Maybe to them weiss is a center they need this season yet, while next season huberdeau, and bjugstad might be ready. Although I also guess they would want to get an asset back at least for weiss if he does not want to resign. But they will pretty much admit defeat then this year with there center situation.
