Montreal and Florida talking Weiss?

This is over in the trade board, figured you would all want to have a take on it, so I would pass it on over here.......


This is all very loose speculation...

Arpon Basu, a respected Habs media guy, just posted this on Twitter:


Quote:
#Habs GM Gauthier and #Panthers GM Tallon are having a 1-on-1 conversation right in the media lounge just before their two teams meet

Could be nothing, or could be something.

Pierre McGuire and Mitch Melnick discussed on the Team 990 today that the Habs might be looking at Stephen Weiss...something else to consider.

This could all be a big pile of nothing, but stil, food for thought.

I like Stephen Weiss but I'm not sure he's really what we need. We have our fill of 2nd line centers. Unless of course Gomez is going the other way.

We can't very well rock Plekanec and Gomez and Weiss... I mean who are we? Pittsburgh?

I like Weiss but I also really hope theyre looking at Booth as well. I love that guy and he's already proven to be a 30 goal scorer. Just what we need on our wing IMO. Would mind Fischer from Ottawa either

If Gomez is going anywhere then I'd hope we throw everything and the kitchen sink for Richards rather than Weiss.

Hey you're preaching to the choir with Richards. Dallas isn't trading him though. They either find the money to re-sign him or he goes to free agency.

Cory Stillman could help a bit I think, he wouldn't be the best solution but not that bad.

I could see Weber being dealt to Florida if we bring in another d-man. I'm sure DeBoer would love to have him.

Maybe we can upgrade? Allen and Wideman both have one more year after this then UFA. Weber ++ (picks/prospects) for Wideman? Would hugely solidify our D.

Edit: After watching him tonight, not sure what happened to the guy this year, but not so sure I want anything to do with Wideman actually.

If we could nab Weiss and Phillips, I'd go BUCK WILD! Would probably have to do some serious cap gymnastics in the off-season though

Man, I'd love to get Weiss. Maybe Florida takes Kostitsyn which makes Sergei go to Florida so they can party all they want lol

Nah but seriously.. Weiss with Gomez still on the team is meh. Unless we demote Gomez to line #3. Pouliot - Gomez - Desharnais. Not shabby. Darche - Halpern - Moen - Pyatt.

So if we get Weiss do we get a star of David discount card? I think that would give us the majority on Jewish players in the NHL.

Pretty sure you got the rumour from Apron Basu on twitter.

He just says that the gms were talking and not that he knows that it's specifically about Weiss.

Frolik would be awesome!

I don't think a trade for Weiss works out, unless they take on Gomez which wouldn't make sense since the Panthers don't have much cash to spend and are in need of a new owner

Yeah, he soon starts his getting paid less than his cap hit run, which gives him value to the teams who want to "cheat" the cap.
