I dont even think the Nucks played that physical like they could have and we still got bounced around.

we need some hitters or we will get crushed in the playoffs. a 4th line upgrade of a center and a winger with some size and grit is certainly needed for the playoff push...Weiss would just be gravy on top imo.
Having Carcillo in the lineup will add a few more hits per game and moving Shaw back to wing should free him up to get a couple more hits per game too. Those two things alone will not vault the Hawks into being a physical team but they would help.

Aside from not having many players who play physically though, there is the puck possession style of play that skews the hit totals against the Hawks - usually the team that has the puck less, hits more. Weiss would improve the Hawk's puck possession game which is the style of play this team is built for.
