I love the gains Wier's made in his game this year, and I'm a fan, but he's not a guy other teams are going to value as much as we do until he can prove that what he's doing right now isn't just lightning-in-a-bottle. I think other teams need a bigger sample size before they bite on Wiercioch at the price some of my fellow Sens fans are suggesting in this thread.
I get the want for a bigger sample size. I mainly meant the mediocre part.

Wiercioch has only had 2 mediocre seasons since being drafted. His first AHL season, which was an adjustment season; and his 2nd AHL season was OK but he had a serious injury.

Also, he called him a 2nd rounder as if it matters.

I am in no way saying Wiercioch should be a center piece for Voracek.
