Im sure hes a character guy but someone has to tell me what this guys brings to the table. There has to be a better option even at this price point. I just dont see the positives. No hands, cant fight, cant pass. Perhaps when booth and kesler are ready, weiss might just be put on waivers.

Yeah I'm not really a fan, it seems like he thinks he's a scorer, but he's a plug and he plays on the 4th line.

Would rather have someone who can hit people through the boards.

His speed doesn't really matter since he barely hits and doesn't have the puck skills to use it to his advantage.

Firstly, it's Weise not Weiss
Second, it's Kesler, not Kessler
Third, Weise is a 50 goal scorer

It seems you are putting too much on a fourth line player

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

When you try and build a fourth line for a playoff team your going to sacrifice some fighting ability for speed.I disagree that he doesn't hit,he does hit.

he's pretty much a replacement for Torres except he doesn't hit as hard as Torres and doesn't get suspended.

Weise is a career fourth liner who has been miscast as a pretender on the third line for parts of the first 10 games this season. He has settled into his role as a fourth liner now.

I've never been a proponent of having a bona-fide enforcer on the club, but after watching a has-been team of the likes of the Wild take liberties with the Sedins last night, I think we need to replace a guy like Weise with a guy like Frazer McLaren of Toronto, another Winnipeg boy (I was totally unaware of McLaren until someone responded to one of most posts...thanks for the heads up). Weise seems to play the role of a fourth liner pretty well (i.e., energy, hits, forechecks hard, has good enough defensive awareness), but he doesn't instill a whole lot of fear to act as a deterrent for liberties taken against our skilled guys.

This will free up the likes of Lapierre and Kassian to concentrate on playing vs. pushing back.

he's not on this team to score - he's been invisible lately cause he was on the third line at one point? what does a fourth liner do on the third line - he has no clue!

Weise - Lappierre - Volpatti

come playoff time you'll all be apperciating how much hitting these guys will be doing...

he's not on this team to score - just hit and occasionally stick up for his teammates
stop looking for problems with a player when there aren't any..

Weise is a good 4th liner. Don't care if he doesn't 1 punch people, he's the type of player we will need come playoffs.
