Weiss is a great player, no question. He isn't a superstar but he's great. There was a reason why the team sucked so badly when he wasn't in the lineup or playing injured. He's a great two way player,has tons of heart, and I believe we need to hold onto him. Same can be said about Steeg. He was playing injured and does try to be flashy at times but he too,is a great player.
I think now that we have some real talent and good depth, were getting too greedy. I wonder how many people who want Weiss and Steeg traded would be saying the same thing if we did end up traded them and became worse?
I never loved Weiss.

He's a good player, not a great one.

If you want to top off as a playoff team, then Weiss is a good long term solution at 2C. If you want to shoot for a cup, you won't win it paying Weiss $5M per to center the second line.
