Not a big loss? Replaceable? Losing Weiss is a big loss, and is not easily replaceable. Oooh, we have Shore and Bjugstad as prospects...so what, they are prospects. One or both can come up and stink up the joint. Weiss has been a lifer here, through the bad times and one good time. He could have bolted just as easily as others, but decided to stay here and see this through. Is he an ideal first line C, no hes not, but to say its no big deal is a bit idiotic if you ask me. He doesnt fill up the score sheet as other top centers do, which Im sure some strictly look at, but what he does for this team on and off the ice makes him somewhat irreplaceable. That was CLEAR every time Weiss was on the ice, versus when he was off. Weiss doesnt deserve Zajac money, but anything around $5 million per shouldnt even be questioned.
