Frattin also scored 24 goals in 36 AHL games in '11-12. Miles better than anything Weise has ever done as a pro.

I take Frattin over Weise without thinking twice. And I don't mind Weise as a 12-13 th forward project.

'Lateral at best' is a much tougher stance to defend...
I'd take the guy who scored 28 goals isn't hurt all the time, and has actually shown to be effective in a 4th line role.

Clearly Frattin received more opportunity at the NHL level than Weise.

Weise stuck on the presidents trophy team.

Frattin a call up from the AHL because he couldn't stick with a lottery team.

What Makes Frattin better? At this stage Weise is ahead of him in development and younger.

I mean you can look at his NHL production and say Weise isn't as good, but how often did he start in his own end? What about Frattin?

Who did Weise play with? Frattin?

It's truly a grass is greener belief for you here.
