The inherent problem in trading Weiss is a) any trade is contingent on passing a physical, which he won't do if he's injured; and b) if he's not injured, there are no excuses for playing as poorly as he has. I wonder if he was actually training with Gary Roberts like in years past or whether he was just sitting around during the lockout, assuming they'd cancel the season. It's a shame to watch this death spiral from being a serviceable and likable player to this shadow of his former self.

Versteeg is another one that drives me absolutely insane. I enjoyed him a year ago when they were playing so well together, but no wonder he couldn't find a home anywhere else and Chicago/Tor/PHI were willing to give up on him. He's perhaps a decent 2nd/3rd line option if surrounded by the proper mix of guys, but he's just non-existent and such a floater since the beginning of last year.
