Weiss

Just wondering what Weiss is worth in a deal?

picks like a 1st, 2nd plus top 6 or good prospect?

Does Florida need immediate help back if they move him?

I think you could get a 1st for him, I think he could be of good use on the Capitals.

Yes, but not in the salary cap era.

Do Panther fans think a first is enough?

First, nice prospect, and another pick.
First, by itself, isn't going to get it done.

Weiss is our best player, and we actually need a center. In order to give our best center away, it's going to take a lot.

I really don't think the Panthers are going to move him but is a 1st, Grachev, Dale Weiss enough?

No idea why Florida would ever want to trade Weiss, but I think he could get quite a bit back. Especially if all they want is picks/prospects.

$3.1M is an absolute steal for what you get, and he's got 2 more full years at that rate.

I would imagine that the Panthers want a center prospect in return.
I'm not sure if that's enough; I'm just going to say that I don't think Tallon is dumb, based on his moves so far.

He traded an overpaid Ballard for Bernier, Grabner (who he let go...kinda sucks he was let go, but looking at the deal itself for a second...), and a 1st (which I believe ended up being Howden).

So I'm sure he's only going to trade Weiss for a tremendous return.

Weiss' #'s don't tell the whole story on how good he is.

He's a very good 2-way forward. He's the perfect 2nd line center, forced to play on a 1st line here with limited talent on the wings. His contract is also very nice for what he produces.

I'm not really expecting a Weiss trade, but if it happens, I'm confident we'd get a lot in return.

Weiss is not being traded. He's the Shane Doan of the Panthers.

Okay so when Weiss is 40 he'll go sign with a contender. But that's not for another 13 years.

The Caps would pay dearly for him and heave the resources to do so.

With Santorelli doing so well on the team, Weiss not being a true #1, and the Panthers needing that, I can see Weiss possibly being available. I'd hope he's not moved out because I like the guy so much, but if the right deal is there, he could be moved. I'd have to think that it'd be a pretty good deal, though.

He's one guy that I'll always cheer for and will always hope for the best for. I'd even cheer for Montreal a bit if he went there, lol. (Unlike Horton, Louie, and a few others)
