Weaver doesn't equate to Greene. Two different players in some key regards.

Thanks for posting that. Clears up things somewhat.

As for Weaver, if the price is decent, grab him. But I wouldn't overpay for him, and if Florida is selling at the deadline they'd likely fetch a 2nd for him. To me, that's to much for him.

He may be getting more than 20 minutes a game, but two questions I have about that. Firstly, how well is Florida doing? They are dead last in goals against and 5th worst in shots against. I know that's not all on the D, but it's telling.

Secondly, would Weaver really be getting 20 minutes a game if Jovanovski was healthy? Jovo wasn't getting great ice time before he was hurt, but odds are he'd have taken a few minutes away from a guy like Weaver if he was.

I'd take him over Muzzin, but I wouldn't overpay him.
