I don't understand what the deal is with all this "replace Weiss" and "goodbye Weiss" talk. The guy had a nasty injury this year but he has been a key contributor over his entire career here. He was thrust into a top-line center role that everyone agrees he is not good enough for. However, he IS good enough to be a second line center and if we so happened to have two guys better than him, he'd be a great third-line center. Guys that good are what teams like the Red Wings or the Penguins have as their third liners, and we are sitting here talking about just throwing him away. I am and always will be a fan of Weiss for everything he has done for this franchise. I hope our prospects become good enough to take the top line role and Weiss can remain with the team in his appropriate role - second or third line center.
