Panthers letting Weiss test market

As per @hfialkov on Twitter (local Panthers writer)

Quote:
"Panthers are letting C Stephen Weiss, G Jose Theodore and D Tyson Strachan test free agency next week. #flapanthers"
So Weiss is officially on the market....

He struggled last season and had wrist surgery, someone is going to regret signing him.

I think it would be cool if next season we see Weiss in a Lightning jersey, and Lecavalier in a Panthers jersey

It's not so much about the struggle/surgery, but that someone is going to give him 1C money when he's obviously not worth it to begin with.

Knew it. Willing to sign him, if Nonis can't get an 1C by the time the draft starts.

If Leafs do 5 years at 5 million I would be happy.

I hope not, very odd move to make unless a #1 center is being brought in from elsewhere. Weiss would not be an upgrade on Grabovski (and will likely make the same money anyway).

I agree... I'd offer him 2 years 4mil per at most. Any contract longer then 2 years is too big of a risk and any amount over 4mil per is an overpayment.

No, there's a few teams that wouldn't want him, or don't need him.

Pittsburgh doesn't need another centre.

If the leafs go after Weiss, I hope Nonnis saves one of our compliance buyouts for him next season.

This is from 2011, but still http://bleacherreport.com/articles/6...he-only-option

His real worth is 3.75-4 mill.

He will get 5-5.5.

Not surprised. What is more surprising is that he isnt one of the best centers out there, especially if Richards becomes available.

Yep, just not a lot of great options at C in the UFA market. I think Toronto will pay him that $5-5.5 and slot him as a number one center. He'll do okay there, not great. It could work out alright for both sides if they don't give him long term. If he gets a 5+ year deal, it could get bad towards the end.

i doubt that, unless he gets injured. his struggles were directly related to not only his injuries, but the injuries throughout the rest of the panthers as well.

any team that gets him is going to love him. he's a great heart-and-soul kind of player.

it is suprising at first glance, but these amnesty buyouts are flooding what is already a pretty deep UFA crop. maybe it will lead to him getting around 4-4.5 as opposed to what he could command on a thin market.
