Can he play head-to-head against the other top centers in the league? Can he defend them? As you can tell, I am not familiar with this player.

29 years old, 5'11", playmaker. Has a good two-way game as well. He does play on the softer side somewhat, but he ends up registering a lot of hits for his role. Here's his profile:

He is currently playing 1C on the Panthers. Has done so for some time. He has played head to head, as the Panther's depth dictates.

I don't think VAN will keep him around after this year. He'll be in the ball-park of a 5m player (a la Zajac), and so will price himself out of the market. However, for this year, he upgrades the C position greatly. Along with a few futures, it could give VAN enough for the here and now to deal Luongo off the roster, as well as something for the future should Weiss walk.
