Id like this signing. Having, three top 6 centers gives us plenty of options and incredible depth. Id offer Eaves/Emmerton + 3rd/4th round pick. for the rights to Weiss.

There is denying this team could use a quality top 6 fwd. Weiss has track record of play a 3 zone game and consistently score 60 points. With opportunities with Datsyuk, Zeus, Nyquist, he could get 25+ goals.

Id test drive him on the wing during pre-season:

Brunner - Datsyuk - Abdelkader
Weiss - Zeus - Franzen
Gus - Helm - Bertuzzi
Tatar - Andersson - Cleary

That line up boasts a lot of offense with out sacrificing defensive Responsibility. Tootoo would get ice time against the Leafs, Bruins, etc.

If Weiss isnt working out on the wing we revert him to C:

Zeus - Datsyuk - Abdelkader
Nyquist - Weiss - Franzen
Tatar - Helm - Brunner
Cleary/Tootoo - Andersson - Bertuzzi

** I would certainly be interested in acquiring one of Campbell, Kulikov, Gudbranson in a package deal if any interest exists in Florida
