How would you guys feel about the Kings reacquiring Mike Weaver from Florida? The Panthers are likely to be sellers and he's signed to an affordable $1.1M cap hit. He's a workhorse, having appeared in all 82 games in the past two seasons and as I'm sure most of you remember of him, he's like a lighter, more compact version of Willie Mitchell, but he can pack quite the wallop with his hits.

Seeing how the Kings are lacking in RH defensemen on the roster right now (with Doughty and Voynov being the only two RH shots), I would think that Weaver would be an excellent third pairing option to go with Drewiske or Ellerby.

Some of Weaver's greatest hits:

Bullcrap penalty called there by a pansy official.

And he can scrap too:

It also helps that he was coached by Davis Payne when in St. Louis in 2009-10. I'd gladly trade Muzzin and a depth prospect or late pick to bring Weaver in.
