    How does this affect things cap wise? I know we have to maneuver a little with the Griffins sometimes, I'd think getting rid of Sammy could only help

    edit: nevermind looked it up and we barely save anything money wise, but definitely could use the extra roster spot

    I think unless someone takes him from the waivers we are stuck with his cap numbers. the good news is that this is his final year. The bad news is that we can not make any trades, we have very little cap space.

    Also, I learned that you get a good discount if you buyout a contract in June. I hope that we buy out Weis' contract. That dude is a complete flop. He will eventually get 6 mil a season with his current contract with us.

    Just awesome. Great to see Holland doing things he should've done a while ago.

    Weiss isn't getting bought out. His cap hit will remain at 4.9M.

    Hopefully Florida picks up Sammy again.. or ****ing Vancouver. Sammy to Vancouver and we retain half.

    He's going to report to Grand Rapids for sure for those wondering. He's going to make about a million to finish the season down there. Why wouldn't you? He's not going to be called back up. A lot of thse guys have out-performed him. Tomas Jurco has more points on the season, as does Riley Sheahan, and he's tied with Luke Glendening.

    I'm also not entirely sure if he'll get PP minutes down there as Teemu Pulkkinen has been on the point as the forward and has been insane.

    I kinda feel for him. Was hoping a team like Florida would pick him up and give him a chance with some top 6 minutes.

    Hope you're wrong and that he does get bought out.

    They should have tried that at the beginning of the season, but with all of the injuries he did help some.

    Me too. I thought he never really got a fair shake.

    Weiss is 26 games into his contract and was supposedly only playing at 60% health during those games. Come on now...

    He seems injury prone and has a long term contract. Unless he can get healthy and return to form, the Wings need to dump him. There may be some decent FAs on the market at the end of the season. The player he was brought in to replace, Flip, has 219 goals and 40 points.

    219? Wow we should've kept him

    Weiss has had a bad start but to give up on him after not even a third of a season is just dumb
