He also has a history and chemistry with Nate Horton, so if the B's wanted, they could build a new scoring line around them, which would allow Bergeron to play a more defensive role at crunch time.

Cons: The B's don't exactly need another center. He doesn't really add any size to the group. He'll be expensive and they won't be able to re-sign him.

I see WEISS as a poor man's Marc SAVARD. He could help the PP, has played with HORTON before and he probably won't cost as much as IGINLA, plus he has more left in the tank. My first choice would obviously be IGINLA but i'm thinking Calgary will want way more then he's worth as a rental.
