Good to hear, better than Volpatti and Bitz. With a solid spot on the 4th i think he can put up some good points, maybe even someday be a 3rd liner.

First some people complain about Volpatti and now you complain about Weise... There is no good signing for you guys is there.

Great signing by MG, especially at only 615k. He was pretty good on the fourth line last year and even chipped in offensively a couple of times.

damn for so low

he wsa good fit on that 4th line , him lappy and volpatti had something good going

one way deal tho huh


He's waiver eligible, is he not? Why do you care if he still gets paid $615,000 if he gets plunked into the AHL? My guess is that Weise wouldn't clear waivers anyway.

The guy is a decent puck possession winger in a 4th line role that drives the play forward. What's the big deal here?

Kassian.... Taylor Pyatt 3.0

Lies. He's more of a Steve Bernier. Hopefully his talent level goes up so he can become like a Taylor Pyatt.

He better become close friends with Schneider. He'll never get any offensive zone starts.

When he's with the Sedins, yeah. He never really did much on the 4th line though. Although that could be attributed to him having missed so much time from injury... I don't see what Bitz brings that Weise can't. Our fourth line winger spots in camp are already going to be quite competitive - Malhotra, Weise, Volpatti, Pinizzotto, Kassian, Ebbett, for starters. Not sure why they'd sign Bitz now over giving a younger player a chance.

Still pretty young and has some skill. Hopefully he can finally solidify the 4th line wing position, as it has been a revolving door the last few years.

Nothing ground breaking, but I think we'll see an even better Weise than we did last year and he'll probably be in the lineup more often than not.

I actually like Weise, good skating, plays a solid grinders game, but could be a little bit tougher perhaps. He has pretty good hands too for a fourth-liner. I think he's a good deal for the price Gillis signed him for.

I love this website. Hating on a young fourth line type player who was decent in his rookie year, signing for less than his Q/O. Makes sense CDC.

What's with the Bitz love affair? He wasn't even that good.

Waste of a roster spot.

How many years in a row do we need to fill the 3rd and 4th with plugs? Why can't we give some young skilled guys a chance for once?

Damn it.

Yep, I don't understand what people expect from the guy. He's young and still improving. The fact that he's been taking boxing lessons shows his commitment to his role, and shows he's willing to work.

$615,000 is cheap, I don't see what the fuss is all about. I guarantee if Weise hits the waiver wire he gets snagged by somebody.

A bit of an improvement this year. Maybe 7 goals 15 points.
One player that is discounted around here is Pinizotto. Never got a chance in the regular season and could be a Lapierre-level 4th liner. Volpatti and Weise are far below Lapierre.

Damn it.

Weise is young (22 I think) and this is us giving him a chance. He has some decent skills and plays a solid 4th line role, with plenty of room to grow. I think he will be a reliable 4th line player this year. And at a price tag like that it's hard to complain. The 1 way contract however is questionable.

Wait isn't 615k less then his QO?

I think that was a 2 way contract too. He settles for the 1 way contract and takes less.


Yes, QO would have been 670,000.

Edit: QO would have actually been 665,500. My bad, started thinking about it later on.

Yes, best I understand it, we could have given him a 2 way offer. I agree, he decided he wanted to play up as opposed to getting stuck in the minors. So, now we play him or trade him or the risk of being picked up on waivers (how we got him btw) is pretty high.

Look, he's even committed to improving parts of his game like fighting. How someone doesn't like a nice cheap, and young, fourth line kid who wants to improve is beyond me.

He's waiver eligible, is he not? Why do you care if he still gets paid $615,000 if he gets plunked into the AHL? My guess is that Weise wouldn't clear waivers anyway.

The guy is a decent puck possession winger in a 4th line role that drives the play forward. What's the big deal here?


The complainers have found a new hobby horse. They're going to horse around with it, whilst yelling themselves hoarse, until it becomes a dead horse no longer worth beating.

The thought might be, on a two way deal, being paid 105k or less, he would not be eligible for return waivers, he could be brought straight up. While I agree he would probably not pass waivers on the way down, if he did, we for sure couldn't bring him back up.
