I don't like it at all. Not that Wiess isn't a good player, I think he is solid. But...I don't know if his ceiling is any higher than say Anisimov or Stepan. It took him 6 full seasons to get to the 60pt plateau. I think both Anisimov and Stepan have the capability of passing that. By the numbers in thier first seasons Anisimov and Stepan have better production. And while Weiss cap hit is affordable Stepan and Anisimov's will be even more affordable.
Leaving Boyle out of this altogether as I don't think this team has any intentions of moving him at all. He's a stud, he's a monster, and he initiates contact better than maybe anyone else on this team. He makes a difference and IMO will be top 6 within a season or two playing the RW which we are maybe a little light at.
I dont like it.
Yeah, I don't think Weiss has been on Sather's radar, except for may be kick the tires. I think the players he'd primarily be asking about are McCabe, Wideman, and Booth.
I'd love for a deal that included Wideman and Booth, just don't know what it would cost.
remember last year at the deadline when sather made that Owens for Newbury deal and everyone was bashing it. it looks like Sather won that trade as of now
im sure sather will make small moves like that. he has not made a big trade since the Jagr trade if you were to call it a big trade. when has sather made another big trade for a superstar?? this is why i doubt richards will be a Ranger and why i doubted Kaberle was going to be one. after July 1 then its a difference story.
No one ever fully recovers, but he's done admirably. Tied with Santorelli for the team lead in goals, which is 17, and is still a budding power forward who lost a year of development. I'm a big fan of his, so I would love to get him here, but:
a. I don't like his contract
b. His injury past worries me
How good are your sources because I would be happy to create a package that focuses on these assets.
I was dead on a few times last yr with my trades. This source is a former NHL player and was dead on the Bruins trade last week even told me the day which I put on my twitter 3 days before it went down and said Boston was giving Leafs a discount and bam it happened
