I see the Leafs are a fringe playoff team and are missing a couple of pieces to be a legitimate team and Weiss isn't one of those pieces.
And like you said what would be the cost of acquiring him? Florida is still a rebuilding team and I think Tallon would be looking for draft picks/NHL ready prospects for him - something the Leafs absolutely cannot trade for anyone.
I have watched Bozak from day 1, I have no issue saying Weiss is better then Bozak. Weiss deserves to be in a teams top 6 Bozak does not Weiss is a 55-60 point player and that with the panthers put him with phil I see him hitting 65 points Bozak not a chance. Weiss is not the perfect solution but he is without ANY question an upgrade.
