Weiss doesn't seem to be a good fit for either Toronto or Ottawa.The Hawks however will gladly take him and slot him on the 2nd line between 2 of Sharp,Hossa Kane or Saad.A top 6 of SAAD-TOEWS-KANE, SHARP-WEISS-HOSSA would be scary good.Plus Chicago and Florida do have a trading history.The Hawks could definitely put together a package of a roster player(s),prospect(s)and pick(s) that Tallon would like.Being in different conferences makes this more of a possibility.Of course the final price would depend on Weiss signing an extension.

Ottawa has lots of cap space. I'm definitely a supporter of pursuing Weiss. I don't think he's going to return the package some seem to be expecting.

You see some with 6000 posts in 4 months and you wonder "do they just reply to every topic around?"
Amen! I tend to respect the opinions of someone with a few thousand posts in a few years than someone with 10,000 posts in their first year. You know most of those are not particularly useful.

Sorry if I offended anyone.

Unless Weiss wants in excess of $10 mil, we can easily resign him...

Yep. We have over $26mil in free cap space next year.

We could probably give Weiss a league-max deal if we wanted to (which, for the record, we don't) and still be at least $10 mil under the cap after filling our other holes.

You're hilarious, my friend.

You should take that act on the road. You could get a 30 min HBO special, at least. Very funny. You're already funnier than Carlos Mencia.

I would hope that the leafs go no where near this. Too many 2nd line centers already.

I'm going to hate to see the type of contract this guy gets in the off-season. He'll be 30 y/o and his highest statistical season will have been 61 points but some GM is gonna pay him like $22m over 4 years. I don't want the Leafs with that sort of cap burden and I don't think we're in a position to start offloading talent for rentals either. Maybe if we didn't have Grabovski, otherwise I don't want two overpaid #2 centers.

He's a center, he's always played center, why would anyone want him on the wing?
So me picking the Panthhers to miss the playoffs and stating Weiss isn't a #1 centre means I'm a Panthers hater?

BTW-Saying "1 Point out of 8th" early in the season isn't proving me wrong.

You're not one? You hunt for ways, and are usually wrong!

Realize that, don't mean you're right though does it

I think my predictions for this season look solid thus far.

Weiss to Chicago for a 2013 First and Mark McNeill.

Weiss re-signs with Chicago, 6 years, 32m.

Saad-Toews-Hossa
Sharp-Weiss-Kane
Shaw-Bolland-Stalberg
Bickell-Kruger-Danault

Best forward corps in the league.

I can see Weiss being a fit on either franchise. I think Ottawa may have to give up 2 of Zibanejad/Ceci/Cowen to get him though.
