pretty simple question, Dale Weise or Aaron Volpatti?

IMO, i like Volpatti better as a fighter, but i think Weise has a bit more potential. i could see him becoming more of a checking player than just a fighter, hes got some decent speed. right now im having trouble finding a comparison, best i can do off the top of my head is a lesser version of Brandon Prust. I would love having them both in the lineup at the same time, a Weise-Lapierre-Volpatti line would be deadly, but it probably wont happen with Malhotra, Kassian and Ebbett taking up space.

hmmm tough question... I think Weise is a better player with more potential but Volpatti is a better fighter plus he is a BC boy.

I gotta go with Weise if given the choice.

Tough choice. I think if we don't get Doan and Raymond is traded, Kassian could get that last top six spot. And if Manny can regain his pre-injury form then our bottom six would look like this:

Higgins - Malhotra - Hansen

Weise - Lapierre - Volpatti

But if I had to choose I'd take Volpatti.

Volpatti is a better figher and is more aggresive, but Weise has a marginally better offensive skill.

For the role that both of these players play, I would rather have Volpatti.

Didn't Volpatti - Malholtra (Or was it Lappy?) - Weise look pretty good at the start of last season before Volpatti got hurt?

Volpatti. Weise is a plug. Would much rather have had Duco playing for us than Weise. Disappointed he wasn't resigned, or played over Weise for that matter. Stupid cap management has caused our bottom lines and prospects some real disservice.

Volpatti by far in my books. This is a guy who competes every night and brings his game. He may not be as skilled, but man he brings a lot more effort and guts to the ice than Weise.

Weise can chip in more offensively and plays a pretty gritty style.

Volpatti is a good fighter and plays grittier than Weise.

The overall better would have to be Weise because he can just do more. Weise WILL fight, he CAN score, and plays gritty.

* The things I listed about Weise doesn't mean he's necessarily good at them.

I would keep both though because together they can cause some real damage on the 4th line.

Weise.

The guy can actually play hockey. Volpatti banked a short professional career after one 'good' season of college hockey.

Weise's face upsets me for some reason, but I would still pick him over Volpatti because he's younger and has more potential for sure.

I'd rather have Volpatti, but if he is slumping we could easily replace him with Wiese.

Weise by far, a lot more skill and still brings the checking game and will fight if needed. It just goes to show you the lack of hockey IQ on this board picking Volpatti over Weise. Weise has the skill to be able to fill in on the 3rd line without hurting that line, Volpatti would be lost on the 3rd line.

Put "Neither" as an option, it'd get my vote.

Probably many others', too.

our 4th line requires grit and for them to punish players either in fights or big hits. Volpatti is a better fighter and bigger hitter than weise but weise is the more skilled player. but for a 4th line roll we dont need skill. id choose volpatti

my dream would be to have our prospects fill in our 4th line wing spots so they can develop toughness. something like

Jensen-Lapierre-Kassian.

Weise is definitely better as an all-around hockey player. The thing is, he doesn't bring it quite as often. Volpatti is the quintessential 4th-line fan favourite sparkplug (if a little small): he understands what his role on the team is, and he plays his guts out.

Weise has the potential to be a little more, but he's still young and inconsistent, and may not reach that potential. I'd pick Volpatti, just because he fits the 4th line role better now.
