Hearing (NYR)Weise is likely to get claimed. Fights, can skate..good hockey sense.
Well for all of you who thought he wasn't NHL caliber, obviously someone does.

Weise > Christensen

Weise was just one of those players who never grew on me. Those type of players are few and far between for me, but I just didn't really like him.

I would rather have Crusher. Flame away.

Too bad, if we had already decided to keep Christensen we could've fit him on board as the 14th forward capwise...

Hope he doesnt go to an Eastern team.

Weise was not claimed. These are how rumors start.

The author said that he thinks Weise will be claimed.

No flaming necessary. I just wanted him because I felt he was a better lower line forward and he was cheaper (About 300k cheaper).

This is Darren Dreger. If he is hearing Weise will be claimed, it is at least viable for a discussion on here.

I updated the thread title. There is no rumor that Weise has been claimed. There is speculation that he might be claimed.

It'll be a shame if he does get claimed. If you watched him in Hartford, you could see that he was a viable prospect for the bottom-six. Plus he did a lot of good things in a leadership role for the Whalepack.

I'd much, much rather have him as a spare forward than Christensen.

What he does in those scuffles is not fighting.

Surprised so many here are indifferent. I like Weiss a lot for the 4th line. As Dreger says....tough, skates, makes smart plays, plays with energy. And he's still very young. I hope we're not giving a Prust away.

It would be a bit of a waste since he's been in our system for a while and is just really showing he can be an NHL player, but guys like Weise, realistically, are a dime a dozen in the NHL. Not to say he couldn't be a good character guy and contribute something, but it's not anything we can't replace via free agency in a heartbeat, really.

Why? Because of his wicked fighting skill and punishing hits?...

Honestly, I'm pretty frustrated about Weise. Guy is a good player and will be an NHLer. So he didn't look great in his callups last year. If I recall, Dubinsky didn't look great in his first callup either.

I really like Mike Rupp a lot, but without signing him Weise makes this team.

Ah well, just another 3rd/4th guy we don't have.

Damn. That's a shame.

I certainly wish him the best of luck.

Didn't care much for Weise. A 4th liner who can't scrap...

Weise is a bubble guy who would never have had a roster spot with our glut of bottom 6 forwards in the system... If anything his loss just hurts our Whale depth....
