Never liked him and i personally think he's only a 2C on a poor depth team.

i'd rather not spend a dime this summer then sign weiss.

i would rather see quincey locked up for 4 years then see weiss. Just dont like the guy and think he's a very, very average player. Also, he's roughly a 52-53% FO guy. Nothing to write home about. It's slightly above average.
All of that is pretty good.

On the faceoffs 53%, is actually pretty good, heck Datsyuk is at 55%, he is also the leading draw taker along with Goc for basically his whole time there. Plays in all three aspects of they game.

So he is a default #1, he also is forced to play the best checking matchup every night and #1 pairing. He will be fantastic in a second line role and we don't have to worry about him producing. He has done so with a collection of guys in Florida his whole career. I guess everyone has opinions but Weiss is a good hockey player and I think he will thrive and get more credit in the second line role.
