The guy is the perfect example of a guy without the tools to even be a competent 4th line NHLer who busts his *** off to do everything the coach wants him to do. AV might like him for the example that he sets, but I could not be more confident that he's not going to work out/last, even just in that plug role.
I think Vandermeer and Volpatti will rotate a bit on that wing for the first little while, and it will be up to one of them to outperform the other. There aren't really that many teams with anyone too big and scary in the west, but I think Vandermeer will probably draw in to match up with guys like Jackman in Calgary, Bissonnette in Phoenix, or St Louis with Reaves. They're the kinda guys who like to run around and always beat the **** out of our fighters.

I'm sure Weise's spot is now secure. I think he'll change a lot of opinions this year.
