When I think of a player like Stephen Weiss and the Florida Panthers, I don't blame the fact that he's on Florida as a reason why he's held back.
I look at Florida as a team that has invested 20 minutes a night on Weiss as their best center, and this is about as far as they'll go with him in that crucial role.
