I'm all for bringing back Weaver if the price is right, of course. With virtually no updates on Mitchell and what seems to be a shroud of total secrecy surrounding the entire strange situation, I don't see him coming back anytime soon.
You're probably thinking of Brian Willsie. The Kings beat the Sharks in the 2nd to last game of the season, although it wasn't Willsie who scored the game winner.
As for Weaver, like you and kingsfan said, my thinking is Weaver would be a decent option at an affordable price and not someone the Kings would have to overpay for.
It also helps that Weaver is locked up for an additional year, just in case Ellerby doesn't look like he can cut it and if Drewiske departs, the Kings can have Weaver as a solid option as a #6-7 defenseman, although right now he would be more of a #3-4 defenseman after Doughty, Voynov, and Scuderi.
