Um, who says we have no space to resign him? You mean the people reporting these rumors about Weiss who are perpetuating the idea that FL can't afford him? Cause those are untrue and Florida has plenty of cap space & money to re-sign Weiss (I know firsthand since I work for the Panthers owner but not for the Panthers). Tallon has expressed several different times that they intend to re-sign him and it doesnt sound like money is a huge issue at all (most likely term). They just want to sign him to a fair deal where they dont break the bank (aka being budget conscious) and don't cause too much of a roadblock for the future prospects like Bjugstad, etc. And Weiss has expressed at several junctures that he wants to be like his idols (Yzerman, etc) who stayed with one team their entire career.
