Either way, it's a win. That's what signing Beauchemin did for us, and people didn't say "oh don't sign Beauchemin, because he's not a #1 D". So why avoid signing Weiss just because he's not a #1 C? Gives us more flexibility.

Worst case scenario, it's a repeat of Connolly, and he can be put on waivers. Doesn't really affect the teams longterm potential at all.
Still doesn't answer as to when they are going to trade Mac and Bozak.
