Stephen Weiss Keys Florida's Improvement

http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=602815

Quote:
"He's such a quiet guy that just goes about his business," first-year Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said. "There's such a high level of professionalism when he comes to the rink. He has a really strong effect on our team. When he's playing well, which he's done for so much of this year – that really has been a bit of the heartbeat of our team.

"Stephen has really been the guy for me that has done such a quality job, not only offensively but against other teams' top lines as well. He's done a great job."

...


"I'm proud to still be here," Weiss said. "There's been some tough times when you wonder which way your career is going, but I had a lot of faith in Dale and I just wanted to be a part of what he was going to do here. After what he did this summer, I was super excited to come to camp and try to build something down here. We're slowly going in the direction we want to go."

The quote that you just posted:

"He's such a quiet guy that just goes about his business," first-year Panthers coach Kevin Dineen said. "There's such a high level of professionalism when he comes to the rink. He has a really strong effect on our team. When he's playing well, which he's done for so much of this year – that really has been a bit of the heartbeat of our team.

"Stephen has really been the guy for me that has done such a quality job, not only offensively but against other teams' top lines as well. He's done a great job."


Is EXACTLY why he should be this teams captain. I understand what Dineen said the other day, how we have a close group in the lockeroom, and he feels that the leadership, as a group, is working well right now, but Weiss deserves to wear the C. A stronger case cannot be made for anyone else on this team.

And look at the comments from Steeger:

"He's not obnoxious like myself, I'd say, with talking and stuff like that, but he'll talk and he'll say his piece," Versteeg said. "And when he speaks everybody listens because he's not one of the guys who wants to speak much. But when he does, it's from the heart.

"We want to win for a guy like Weisser. He hasn't been to the playoffs yet and he hasn't gotten to experience that taste. This is something we want to do for guys like that and really have their spirits lifted and have them feeling good about themselves and knowing they're playing in the NHL, not just to play but they're playing to win, too."

Steeger sure is a class act. He might be a bit over the top with some things, but the guy seems to be a real team player. You have to love the comradery that is going on in the teams lockeroom.

It seems pretty damn clear that Weiss should be captain.

You got to love the guys on this team! It's just super encouraging, from a fan's perspective, to hear our boys confidence in each other and the camaraderie that they share!

This is all very foreign to me. Players talking happily about being a Panther? Players talking about winning for each other? Happy times in the dressing room?

I am really hoping this bubble doesn't burst...

Name Weiss captain on the day this team clinches a playoff spot.

You want the focus to be on something other than just "Panthers end decade of futility."

A jolt of good karma never hurts.

Weiss is just as skeptical and knows everything can come down crashing at any moment. He's like us long time Panthers fans

I really like Weiss' quote from after the NJ game:

"We decided it could go one of two ways—either we get spanked or fight our way back into it. We're not going to quit. We weren't happy with the way we played in the first, but that doesn't mean it was over. We pulled up our pants and changed things around."
—Stephen Weiss after Florida's 4-3 win over the Devils. New Jersey led 3-0 at the first intermission.

I was one of the crew here that said he should have been captain when McCabe came into town. It's time, long past due.
