Vancouver now has Weber and Diaz..definitely going in the right direction! Or maybe this means the end for Weber cause they can't both be playing at the same time lol. Poor Weber, he keeps getting shafted by Diaz time and time again.
So I guess that he can fight is good....he might take some fights off Prust and Moen.....But winning fights...that's just another dimension to his game he has trouble with. We'll see what he does. But not that long ago, Diaz was doing really well. Just like tons of players that were doing well and we did what he could to kill their value....which we did with Diaz. I guess though that it will solidy our "speed" identity....
Trade a 17 minute guy when used properly for a 4th liner that won't have an NHL job in a year. Lets hope he takes Therrien with him.
That ice time and pp time is going to go to Beaulieu so what's the problem? We want the Habs to go younger and let these kids play and when we make a move for them we complain. I mean come on Diaz is nothing special, seriously guys
No one on those teams will care. Weise is not a very good fighter.
Yes you are right but he can hold his own because none of Desharnais, Briere, Markov and Gorges cant fight and etc. The more bigger players we get, they will think twice before creating crap. Last game Murray, Prust and Parros were on ice vs bruins so they couldnt bully everyone.
Weise is a solid bottom 6 player. He's fast (won our fastest skater competition 2 years in a row) and has some decent offense. He can play hard and play an excellent grinding game while chipping in with some points once in a while. He's ideally a 4th liner but can slot up on the 3rd line if needed. Unfortunately, ever since the lockout where he was a monstrous scorer in the Dutch league, he's been prone to Johnny Malkin Syndrome where he thinks he's more skilled than he really is and attempts to give himself more ice-time here and there and try to dangle guys (often unsuccessfully). He does seem to have a knack for playing really well against Nashville for some reason. IIRC, a large percentage of his career points were against Nashville. All in all, solid bottom 6 player if he gets his head out of his ass. Hope Dutch Gretzky (aka the Great Chin) serves you well!
