Isn't Weise pretty young anyways? He seems to have some upside.
If Weise were a Canuck drafted/developed player, people on this board would be falling all over themselves to praise him and scream about AV "ruining" him.
PPG in the WHL at 19, 28 goals in the AHL at 21, reasonably big body, willing to get his hands dirty, and willing to drop the gloves for his teammates. People would be absolutely ******** if he had come up through the system.
That's not to say that I think he's a top-end prospect or anything, but I think that he's an unbelievably good example of the way that peoples' perception of prospects is coloured by their fan goggles.
That this guy is apparently trash while AV and the horrible mean Canucks perpetrated some perceived crime against Shirokov boggles the mine.
