Why even bother going through arbitration to re-sign him? He could easily be replaced or upgraded.

Uhhh 4th liners certainly aren't rich. They live comfortably, but they are NOT rich. An extra 75-100K is much more important to a guy making $800K compared to a guy making $3+ mil.


I make 110,000 a year as a pipe fitter and live "comfortably"

Trust me when I say... 550'000 a year... is rich.

That is literally 5x what I make, and that's entry level.

You're not a "realist", you're a pessimist.

Luo just spent 20k for a weekend of poker.
One of these things is not like the other.


Yea... Ones a gold medal winning, craig jennings winning, Game 7 SCF, Vezina finalist and ones a 4th line grinder.

You're not a "realist", you're a pessimist.

Yeah but pro athletes have generally a 5-10 year window to make money... you have what? 20-30+ years?

I'm not saying they've got it hard by any means. They certainly do not. But they also have a pretty limited window to maximize earnings. Bottom 6 guys arguably an even smaller one given they're already on the periphery of being in the NHL.

Let him walk. Then we sign Tanev and Schroeder and see what's left. Can we still go over the cap by 10% until the end of the summer? Could sign Brunner, then waive or trade someone later.

And it might just not be about money. Perhaps he is fighting for a 2 year contract instead of 1.


Then his chances aren't good.

I've liked some of his play this year. For a 4th liner, he sure can skate, and that goal against StL was awesome (although the only "highlight" reel goal this year IMO, in reference to a previous posting).

I don't like hearing about those comments regarding his attitude. If he is as lacking in character, as those comments would suggest, then that makes him even more expendable. Pretty sad character flaw for a bubble player. When you see the Sedin's strive to improve each year, as good as they are, Weise could learn something from their work ethic.

I'd be happy enough if he stayed, but if a 1-way and 10% bump was MG's offer, I'm not sure Weise did much to earn significantly more than that.
Love the weather here, but I miss Vancouver hockey.

Glen Sater won't be that stupid to sign Ballard because he is not going to get ice time under AV and it would be a waste of cap space and money.
Weiss was put on waivers by the Rangers whilst Tortorella was coach. It has to be a sour relationship between the two based on words said on Weise interview before Tort was hired. MG and the owner would just make themselves look stupid if they try to re-sign useless Weise for big money only to sit in the press box. If Weise really wants to continue his NHL carrier, his only chance is to sign elsewhere.

Weise is one of the fastest players on our team with a ocean of heart and willingness to smash opposition because he likes it . I hope they can reach an agreement and put the past behind them.
