What could the middle weight scrapper bring in return?

Absolutely nothing. Wiemer doesn't even make very much but I would still classify him as one of the most overpaid players in the league. He's having trouble even holding down a fourth line spot and I would be shocked if any team at all would have interest in acquiring him...

Only a rumour?

Anyone who wants him, just ask. I'll even personally drive him to the airport.

I can beat that. I'll pay the $132 for a helicopter sight seeing flight to get him to the airport asap

Well, Sutter has been playing him lately. We will have to see if that raises his stock any.

Yes I was wondering why he was out there so often the last few games

The most I'd give is an 11th round draft pick(and yes, I know how many rounds are in the Draft).

I don't think Sutter playing him 60 minutes a night would fool anyone else into taking him on..

The interesting comment in the story for me was the admission by Maloney that every team in the league has players on the payroll that could be had for next to nothing just to get the money off the books. To me that is one more sign that the game changed in ways that were not clear to any of the GM's or if it was they weren't certain they could believe the league when they said it was going to change.

As for Weimer? Just be grateful that he doesn't make that much money and hope the contract runs out sooner rather than later.

I would be very surprised if anyone picked him up for free. Same with a tonne of players around the league.

If Calgary is still feeling good about their team at the deadline and they have budget to play with I would expect Weimer (and a bunch of other guys around the league) to head to the AHL after clearing waivers in order to open up the slot for whoever the GM can get. In Weimer's case that is flushing about $200,000 if I've got the math right and I can't see any team letting that get in their way of making a move to improve.

Even thought it would take Bonk salary off our shoulders, I think Sundstrom is very valuable for the habs, Great defensively and a PK god (). But still not a bad proposal IMO.

I just think the Habs could use some more experienced grit and toughness. I don't mind Sundstrom, but IMO the Habs have some young players that could play his role.

You can tell the thread title has inspired the same kind of excitement and anticipation as when it was rumoured that Lecavalier was available.

Who? Who be the team lucky enough to land this coveted prize? Start your bidding early...

Oh finally! A 29 year-old marginal 4th liner, that can't score and takes stupid penalties all for just under a million dollars is on the market! Happy day. He'll probably be waived if anything.

I'd rather have him on the 4th line than Brian Savage and Jon Sim on the 2nd/3rd lines.
